Not for KOOKS Only

| April 2005


I was marveling over Dave and Janet Tempest's wonderful display of more than 150 apple peelers and more than 50 sets of egg scales at last summer's Rushville (Ind.) Pioneer Engineers show, when Dave asked if I had ever seen a raisin seeder. I didn't want to admit that I had never even heard of a raisin seeder! Dave, who lives at Scipio, Ind., has a large collection of these early wonders. Most are rare, unusual and, because of their scarcity, quite pricey. They're less rare, perhaps, to KOOKS: Kollectors of Old Kitchen Stuff.
