“Tablespoon” in her recipe book didn’t actually mean Tablespoon

Tablespoon" in her recipe book didn't actually mean Tablespoon

This wonderful tweet was brought to our attention by our wonderful sister who no doubt was referring to our wonderful Grandmother D. The tweet itself is by Shiv Ramdas and here’s the link to the original tweet. And where it became rather infamous over on reddit.

He goes on to mention in the twitter thread: “I should point out that none of this even refers to the most dreaded recipes in there, AKA the Blue Spoon recipes, which have this name because the steps have helpful tips like “Add 2 blue spoons of sugar” because I don’t even have it in me to attempt this boss battle.”

The blue spoon is a great way of specifying exactly what cooking cutlery you need to use in the kitchen. I’m certain my Grandmother used the blue spoon regularly. Another classic piece of cooking equipment for her was the” golden syrup” can, as that was just right for cut dough for perogies. Or was that my Mother? I’m certain as soon as I post this I’ll be proven wrong.

If you are looking for your own blue spoon, here’s a nice one from Amazon:
