Salad greens, spinach, and head lettuce are growing like crazy in the Polyface garden right now, which means Dan and I have been washing pounds and pounds of greens lately. It's made me realize just how much I prize that trusty kitchen companion, the Salad Spinner. I didn't have one growing up, and I always dreaded when my mom asked me to make a salad for dinner. All that agony with drying each leaf by hand...all those piles of dish towels. But now, I'm able to get those greens washed and dried in a flash and bagged up to be sold in our farm store. (Oh, and Mom? I'd be willing to make you a salad too, with no complaints!)
All this has got me thinking, readers - what is YOUR favorite kitchen gadget? Which one inspires you to cook or reminds you that being in the kitchen is fun?
