    Default Yes, It's That Time Again !!!

    Name That Kitchen Gadget:

    http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll...m=320244079610

    I think it may be a type of boiled ham mold,
    to make a pattern in the surface imitating
    the depresions that would be made if it
    were tied with string.

    But there is no spring action for squeezing
    the meat. And the inner surface of the mold
    is mostly flat, except for the slots, so it
    wouldn't make good impressions on the surface.

    I've also considered that it might be for
    draining curd in cheesemaking.

    I think the overall shape is the key to
    identifying this object. What is bigger
    one one end than the other? Ham, yes.
    Provolone, yes.

    Maybe for poaching pears? Or perhaps it's something to do with
    avocados? Otherwise, I have no clue.

    It's 10 inches long. If you've got a pear or
    avocado that big, I'm more interested in the
    fruit than the gadget.

    Oooops <G>. Now that would be a pear indeed. Perhaps a pear wrapped in
    pastry? Heliphino

    Put stuffing into it, close and shove it into a turkey.
    When done, the stuffing , flavored from the bird, is now easily remove
    from the bird.

    That's the first sensible explanation yet.
    Is that a guess, or do you really know?

    One problem is that the gadget would get
    pretty hot when the turkey is roasted.
    I suppose a string could be threaded
    through it, and then it could be removed
    from the bird just by pulling on the string.

    With a length of window sash chain tied on one end and filled with
    clumping cat litter it would make a fine reusasble tampon for
    cyberooze.

    was a guess.
