There was an online video circulating that showed how you can see just what still lingers inside wooden spoons even when you run them through the dishwasher. My mom utilizes the wooden spoon in many ways. Watch what happens when she puts her own wooden spoons to the test. Growing up, we used the wooden spoon in many ways. It was a disciplinary tool as well as an important utensil for my mom to make her sauce. When I saw this video going around online, I thought that it would be a good experiment for my mom to do just to see what hasn't been washed out of her wooden spoons. Watch as she puts her spoons to the test.

Once my mom did these videos and completed her experiment, we had her on the show to talk about what she thought came out of her wooden spoons that she has been using for years. Listen as I speculate what the remnants were that were lifted from the wooden spoon.

My mom is a good sport. Growing up in an Italian household, the wooden spoon was used as a fear tactic. Many times my mom would carry it in her purse. All she would have to do is show us that she brought it for us to behave. There were occasions that she "tapped" us with it. But my favorite things she used the wooden spoon for was cooking. My mom makes the best sauce and the key to keeping it from sticking is that trusty wooden spoon.
