We all use teaspoons, from stirring drinks to eating honey. But there are a huge range of things you can do with wooden teaspoons.
- Stirring: Wooden spoons are gentle on cookware and won't scratch them. They're also good for stirring sauces and gravies without them sticking to the bottom of the pan.
- Mixing: Wooden spoons are also good for mixing batters and doughs. They're less likely to absorb flavors than metal spoons, so they're a good choice for mixing delicate dishes.
- Serving: Wooden teaspoons can be used to serve small portions of food, such as desserts or sauces. They're also a good choice for serving foods that are prone to sticking, such as ice cream or pudding.
- Tasting: Wooden spoons are a good choice for tasting food because they don't impart any flavors of their own.
- Measuring: Wooden spoons can be used to measure small amounts of ingredients, such as baking powder or vanilla extract.
- Scraping: Wooden spoons can be used to scrape the sides of bowls and pans to get all of the food out. But as kid, that was always for me to get out with my fingers and eat lol, at least for things like cake mix.
Wooden teaspoons are also a good choice for people with allergies to metal or plastic. They're also more environmentally friendly than disposable plastic spoons.
Here are some specific things that you can use wooden teaspoons for:
- Stirring soup or stew
- Mixing batter for pancakes or waffles
- Serving ice cream or pudding
- Tasting cookie dough or cake batter
- Measuring baking powder or vanilla extract
- Scraping the sides of a mixing bowl
- Mixing salad dressing or marinade
- Spreading jam or jelly on toast
- Drizzling honey on pancakes
- Mixing baby food
If you're looking for a versatile and eco-friendly utensil for your kitchen, a wooden teaspoon is a great option.
