Dip up perfect pancakes every time without the mess with this wooden spoon/ ladle. This takes me back to the 4th spoon I made when I first started. I called it my pancake spoon because I used it to dip up my batter. I hate pouring it right out of the bowl because no matter how careful you are you end up with a dribbling mess down the side of the bowl. The bowl on this spoon is large and deep and holds enough batter to make a large pancake. It is 11 1/2 inches long and has a 3 inch wide bowl. I also like to use mine as a serving spoon for chili and the like.

It is made from Honey Locust that I got from a tree trimmer in Denver Colorado. Honey Locust is a cousin of Mesquite. They are both members of the bean family. The wood is similar to Mesquite except that it is a creamy yellow and orange color. It is hard and heavy. It is called Honey Locust not for the color of the wood but because the 8-10 inch long bean pods it produces are high in sugar and were used as a source of it by the first colonists to America.

Finished with beeswax and mineral oil.

This utensil is "pre-washed" so to speak. During the final sanding the grain is raised twice with hot water and then the loose fiber ends are sanded off with a finer grit of sandpaper so that in use the spoon will not get rough. Then it is soaked in a bath of melted beeswax and mineral oil at 160 degrees Fahrenheit.

Care is easy, just wash in hot soapy water and towel dry. Apply some mineral oil or Walnut oil every couple of weeks. Better yet is a mixture of 3 parts mineral oil to one beeswax. Melt them together in a double boiler and pour into a small jar. We usually sell 4 ounce jars but we are out right now. We should have some more soon.
