In a few quite moments while waiting for dinner to roast itself in the oven, I decided to crack open the spoon oil I made in last month's Grandma Club. Yes, Grandma Club is back and yes, spoon oil is exactly what you think it is.
Part beeswax part mineral oil, this mixture is perfect for reviving your old wooden spoons, cutting boards, wooden bowls, and similar kitchen items. I must admit, my wooden utensils were in a sorry state. It was a nice ritual to condition my well-loved wooden spoons; an activity that made me just want to acquire more wooden utensils. I'm especially keen to get more olive wood items. So be warned, conditioning your wood spoons may kick off an itch to buy more of the same!
If you are interested in making your own, us Grannies use 3191 Miles Apart's recipe/directions. It was quite easy in steps, but requires some elbow grease. And a few drinks.
