Antique Meat Grinder, 8 x 10 watercolor stillife

1 Comment

This heavy but serviceable antique once belonged to my paternal grandmother (Mamah).  It has and still does grind meats for my family.  To purchase this painting, please click here


1.  Slow-cook a nice sized roast (chuck, rump....your choice) in a crock-pot.

2.  Enjoy that meal and the next day....... grind the left-over meat, sweet pickles, one chopped onion, and about 6 (peeled) hard-boiled eggs in the grinder.  

3.  Add a little mayonaise and spread on a cracker for a scrumptious snack!

The meat grinder is so well done. I remember ours intimately, and yours is just like it. I also love the background, where the paint runs and eddies just a bit near the bottom. That sort of thing makes it look like a painting, not just a stark rendering of what's there. It surprises me to see that that effect can be achieved by a touch in the background, that it doesn't have to be in the main object.
