p! Friends recently uncovered a pair of old kitchen utensils that were completely foreign to them - and to us. The two items are pictured on this page. The one with the wooden handle looks like it might be an old-fashioned device for creaming butter and sugar. Or was it used for mashing potatoes and other vegetables? The other is a complete mystery. Is it a tool for removing silk from a corn cob? Or a strange tongue scraper? If you know the answer to either of these, please post them below or e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org.
