Canning and preserving the bounty of the farm
Some items of the past that many do not even know what they were used for:
Right is an old canner which has a carrier for jars inside and the grinder on top and old box of spices used for pickling.
And left a corer for apples. The old preserves book is from my grandmother's days.
A household scale
Lots of green handled utensils in a bowl
Do you remember these old egg beaters and a potato masher?
And what about a sifter? On top of an old apple box.
Many old items that are no longer
used are now very collectible.
