The Grind

I was out Christmas shopping yesterday (and I am now all done THANK GOODNESS), and came across an old meat grinder at an antiques store.  The ones I'd seen before at antiques stores were pretty pricy, but they were only asking five bucks for this one so hell yeah.

I remember my Mom making sausage with one of these when I was a kid.  And grinding up ham for ham salad.

I will probably never make sausage OR ham salad, but it's nice to have a reminder of my Mom.

There is something to be said for nostalgia.  And cast iron.

Oh my god - just seeing that picture brought back some memories ! My mother also had this thing and I remember being fascinated watching her grind meat. Cheap entertainment, haha :)

Hmmm ... maybe all moms had one of these? Maybe they were standard issue for moms. "Congratulations! It's a girl! And here's your meat grinder!"
