Kitchens used to have these...do you remember?

Not sure what this squeezed.  Do you know?

 My mom had a meat grinder like this, before we bought all our hamburger at the store. Since my dad's father had worked at a meat packing plant, they probably knew a lot about meat. Poppy was an accountant, and so was my father.

Another interesting one, but I don't know what product it used...
Oh dear, I wish I knew what this was for...

My friend, Martha, used to always grind fresh coffee beans before making a cup...in the 2000s even!

Today's quote:

  1. Glass bottles and meat grinders for sure. I think my mother had the grinder up until her passing in '03.

  2. A lot of these are definitely enigmatic to me.


Hi, I'm glad to publish your comments. Let's keep it civil, shall we?
