A few years back I was into going to Antique Markets. I still do it, but, not as seriously as before. On one of those outings, I found this Nut Meat Chopper. We had one when I was a kid. When we were going to make some yummy sundaes, we would get this out and chop up peanuts to throw on all the ooey gooey sauce.  Yesterday I thought I would make a yummy cinnamon loaf that another blogger had up on her site. It called for chopped pecans.......sounds yummy right? So, got out all the ingredients, started stirring and folding and measuring everything. Time for the nuts............oh the chopper worked, for a bit, then it just fell apart............the front just fell off the thing in mid chop. Nuts spilled all over the counter...........NUTS!
Back to the real old fashioned way...........hand chopping.

    1. Apparently, there is a thin line between antique....and garbage!!

  2. LOL! Ah Nuts! So sorry, my mother also had one of these, I guess antiques can be junk:(
