Did you ever feel that a spoon just wasn’t enough? OK, that only happens to me. This is one of those times.

It looks pretty good sticking out of a pot of cassoulet, based loosely on this recipe. Thanks, Emeril!

The ring spoon had me on the ropes for a while. Everything that could go wrong, did. At least twice. It’s a combination/variation of things I’ve done before, it just went all goofy this time. If it doesn’t do a good job as a spoon, I’m throwing it at the neighbors cat.

The shovel is 16” x 4”, the spoon is 13” x 2”. Mineral oil on both pieces. American Black Walnut, courtesy of Hurricane Ike, Sept. 2008.

That is so AWESOME!!!! Hope you dont mind but Im going to copy the shovel. It would make a great chili spoon! Plus the way I eat chili I might just use it to eat with lol !

Just had to check the recipe, start with a 6 quart pot, no wonder you got the idea for a shovel!! Like the
way you made it work, and yes it would be great for chili, both the making and/or eating. That ring
spoon is also nice. Thank you for sharing. Do not know if you should follow murch’s advice, you just
might dig up a shop that was starting to grow.
