Olive Wood Ladle
We cannot get close enough to olive wood. The trees grow for 1000 years. The swirling grains are simply breathtaking. The 35 trees we tend in Tuscany faithfully yield a year's supply of olive oil...the Mother's Milk of Italy. These ladles are hand-carved...you can tell by passing your fingers across them, feeling the constant change in depth. Our ladles arrives from near the Mediterranean Sea. You can be sure that yours will be completely unique. Wash in warm water and dry with a towel. Olive wood is dense and hard. Late in life, as you tidy things up, ahead of your voyage to heaven, you will find this ladle in the drawer, still content to be one of your favorites.
