Y Knot Bowl, Medium Butternut 11"
The Butternut is actually a walnut tree! The Black Walnut is more well known, but the White Walnut is what we commonly call the Butternut. The nut is mild, sweet and oily – hence the reference to butter! Perhaps slice a baguette, place the bread slices in your Butternut Bowl and serve with a honey-butter as a delectable way to begin your meal!
Caring for Your Bowl
Most importantly – please do not put in the dishwasher! The strong
detergents and high temperatures will damage handmade wood products.
To clean, simply wipe with a damp cloth or wash in warm, lightly soapy
water. Soak for less than 1 minute.
If you are using the items regularly, the oils in the food and on your hands
will constantly season the wood so you probably won’t need to re-apply any
oil to the finish. But if necessary, a LIGHT coat of walnut oil or butcher block
oil can be applied. Don’t use olive oil as it can go rancid if the item isn’t used
regularly. Some types of mineral oil can be used, but some varieties do not
dry well, leaving the surface feeling sticky.
