This wonderful rustic Plum Wood Kitchen Long Handle Spoon is handmade by my husband who enjoys spending a great deal of time creating each wooden utensil for your home. He spends many hours collecting the dead branches and tree deadfalls and then in his woodshop lovingly cutting, carving, sanding and finishing with these woods. We have great respect for these trees and are grateful to give them a second life with these practical kitchen tools. The long handle makes it perfect for reaching into a deep pot of a stew or scooping up a hefty helping of cooked cereal from a pan. We put a slight curve at the end of this spoon. And please note that there's a sweet little "dip" in the middle of the handle too....it's shown in one of the photos. I think it adds character but that's me.
All of our wooden utensils are hand carved and may be perfectly “imperfect” which is exactly what we love about them. Every piece is unique and no two will ever be alike. Different woods make them look even more unique. The woods we use are very dense and have close grains and we’re always on the look out for new woods we can give new life to.
In a rare stroke of luck we were gifted part of a large plum tree some folks had cut down.....such a treasure!!! Plum is a richly colored fruitwood, usually slightly more dense than it’s more common neighbor, Cherry. The heartwood color is reddish, the sap and outer portion of the tree is a pale creamy brown. The timber qualities of Plum are excellent and it's easy to cut, carve, sand & polish. The colors are in this wood are just stunning!!!
Hand wash and dry your wooden spoons. They should never be soaked in water. Oil when the wood seems dry with your favorite kitchen oil. You can rub with a slice of lemon if any strong flavors remain.
These photos show the exact spoon you'll receive. I photograph each one individually.
