I used my little enamel melting pot the other day to melt some butter, I loved it. It was so much fun and I didn't use a bigger pot or the micro which I really don't like but hubby uses it a lot. It melted perfectly and it was fun to use this little treasure for the first time with homemade butter to boot.
This morning I was getting my pot ready for some catnip infusion and feeding our sour dough starter and I thought I would share something so simple it is actually quite silly.
A spoon, yes that is what is in the picture, but the long handled one is the one I wanted to share with you. When I was a kid this was a tea spoon we used them to mix sweet n low or lemon into our tall glasses of ice tea. Well I didn't but my grandmother did and they always fasinated me with their long handles.
So when I saw some at the thrift for 10 cents each I grabbed 10 of them. I use them for everything, but this morning I used one to feed the sour dough starter since the containers I put it in are deep like quart mason jars or the container below. The longer handle is very helpful when stirring or getting flour out to feed it from the jar above. It keeps things a little neater than a short handled spoon.
Also they are great for digging into jars of olives that are low in the jar, or jams and jellys, honey, coconut oil. Your fingers stay out of the container since you have such a long handle to reach into the jar.
With my regular spoon I was always getting honey or something on them when scooping out something especially something at the bottom, now there is no problem and I can use my wonderful fun tea spoons that I loved as a child though I don't drink tall glasses of sweet tea anymore.
Have a wonderfully blessed day...
