Traditional Scottish Kitchen Utensils - Spoons, Spurtles and Tea Caddy Spoons
A spurtle is used to stir porridge. It is believed to help avoid the formation of lumps in your morning oats. According to tradition, when the spurtle can stand up on its own in the middle of the porridge, it is ready to eat... we prefer it a bit creamier though.
Spoons and tea caddies
Traditional Scottish kitchens would often feature utensils such as salt spoons (for measuring salt to add to soups, stews and porridge), tea caddies (for measuring tea leaves) and jam spoons - which are also great for honey and other sticky spreads.
Horn as a material...
Horn has been used for centuries as a material for kitchen utensils as it is a natural polymer that's strong, flexible and doesn't allow water to permeate. All of the products above are made with natural horn for superior quality kitchen utensils.
