I love unusual cutlery & while browsing a cutlery stall in the lovely Ludlow market with a friend this week, we saw a serrated knife & both speculated on its use.
The helpful stall owner came over & informed us that it was a grapefruit knife? 'Really?'was our surprised retort!
I use a elongated, serrated grapefruit spoon at home but he said the knife had replaced it even though he is asked for the serrated spoons on a regular basis.
I bought the knife to see if it is an improvement on the spoons I use. I bought some grapefruit from the nearby fruit stall so I could test them out - I know, I like to do such things!
This morning - test time ....
The spoon removed it right to the skin, the knife left some behind. However, I use the spoon regularly so this probably helped. However - the knife was much quicker to use ....
An interesting test - I think I will be using the knife a lot even though I was originally very sceptical about it. It is quicker but both do the same thing ....
Are you a grapefruit eater? How do you peel yours? Do you find strange cutlery interesting?
Thanks for stopping by and taking the time to read & comment
