I confess, I have an aversion to sticky hands! This spoon has a long handle to keep your fingers away from stickiness as you spoon out jam, or chutney, or pickles. It would work really well as a latte spoon – think tall glass filled with creamy, frothy coffee. You need to access that frothed milk somehow!
I always work with “found” wood: Although the shape of the spoon remains similar – the wood will always be unique.
Wood care instructions
USE – WASH – REPEAT
All my wooden utensils are made to be used on a daily basis. They can be hand-washed with detergent and hot water, just like any other kitchen utensil, but they will not appreciate being left soaking for long periods in water. And they must not be put in a dishwasher.
Over time, with use, your wooden utensil will build up a patina that is unique to you, and your usage. Part of the beauty of wooden ware is observing this change over time.
All the utensils are sealed with linseed oil, and in some cases there might be a slight taste or feel of oil during the first few uses. This will pass with normal washing.
