Pear spoon (with a newly picked pear). We picked 24 pounds of pears and twice that amount of apples.
Spicy pear infused vodka. Excited to try this in a week or two.
Even when you’re staring at a screen all day, there can be moments when the real is available to enjoy. Tea and yogurt with pears. Spoon by Greg Nelson.
Wagatabon (not the traditional method)
Sadly, this month, I found out that E.J. Osborne had passed away. Although I never met EJ, he played a huge role in my path to spoon carving. I had read a book by another carver that started my interest in carving, but I waffled a bit about doing it, and then I found EJ’s book at the library. Funny thing, it was his book cover that drew me in at first. I love that cover! It’s contours implied a journey, and when I read it, that’s exactly what I began. Thanks, EJ, for being one of my guides into the world of carving and woodworking. Rabbi Harold Kushner once said, if you want to be immortal: plant a tree, write a book, and have a child. EJ did those things and so much more. For EJ’s wife, daughter, I’m so sorry for your loss, and the three of you are in my thoughts.
