Salad Server set handmade in Hickory wood Sassafras leaf design
I designed the set after two of the three shapes of the Sassafras Leaf. The sassafras has three distinct leaf patterns on the same plant, unlobed oval, bilobed (mitten-shapped), and trilobed (three-pronged).
I collected leafs off a sassafras in my yard and used them as my models.
They can be handled like a paddle for tossing salad and then held by the handles for serving.
Handles are generally gently rounded and just feel good to hold.
Wooden utensils, with their smooth and gentle curves are much less likely to bruise, crush or tear your ingredients as you stir.
Finishing Process: 1. Sanded smooth; 2. Grain raised by wetting; 3. Sanded and polished smooth again; 4. Hand rubbed and buffed finish using a blend of mineral oil and beeswax (Honey for Wood) which are both food safe.
CARE: Rinse off wood utensils immediately after use. Hand wash with hot water and mild dish soap. Dry wood utensils with a towel instead of letting air dry. Recondition with mineral oil at least monthly. Mineral oil is food safe and will not turn rancid the way cooking oils can. Allow to soak in and wipe excess off with a paper towel. For extra cleaning power, occasionally rinse the wooden pieces with white distilled vinegar to kill germs, bacteria and mold, or you can rub half a lemon across the utensils to disinfect, as well.
