SOLSC Day 20
Last evening we were looking through boxes that we brought down from Kathy’s mother’s house when we were cleaning it out. While looking through one box I found two items that brought back memories of my grandmother because she also had these items.
Here is the first one.
I remember my grandmother attaching this to a wooden bench she had. With a bowl placed beneath it she would go to work. She rarely bought ground meat. Instead she would buy cuts of beef, cut them into cubes, and run through them through this grinder. Once in a while she would let me turn the handle while she put in the meat cubes and pushed them down carefully with her fingers. As I turned the handle ground meat would spew forth.
She had several blades for this because meat was not the only thing she would grind. She also would grind crackers for cracker meal.
Here is the second item I found.
I admit I enjoyed playing with this. Maybe that is one reason I enjoy baking. For all you youngsters out there this is an egg beater. The faster you turned the handle the quicker the beaters turned. If you were beating egg whites you really had to get your hand moving.
We have more boxes to go through. Who know what treasures they may hold.
