One thing I've noticed when we go to estate sales is that almost every kitchen from an elderly homeowner has a carefully stored set of an old meat grinder and the attachments. We've even bought and sold a few of these vintage kitchen collectibles ourselves.
I remember like it was yesterday that my mother would attach ours to the edge of the kitchen table and grind her own hamburger meat, and also her own hash from leftover roasts.
These ole timey food processors make great country kitchen decorations, as well as interesting collectibles to display. I've seen them in all sizes, from a very small number 2 to a huge farmhouse size 22! Most collectors are interested in the ornately molded ones, particularly if all the attachments are still there and they are still in the original box in good condition.
Does anyone still really use these staple kitchen tools from years gone by, or has the convenience of "store bought" ground hamburger meat made them obsolete?
Do you have any childhood memories of turning the grinder handle, or maybe of home ground sausage, meatloaf, hash, or other wonderful dishes?
