Product Description

Salt Pigs

Made to order from a range of New Zealand timbers.

Handmade turned wooden spoon included with your purchase.

Hand-crafted salt pigs for the kitchen. Crafted from an assortment of native timbers of your choice. The salt pigs have historical roots in Scotland for centuries the salt pig has assisted cooks in preserving and properly measuring their salt. A salt pig is used to hold salt, to make it easily accessible to pinch or spoon measure into dishes.
Benefits - The construction of a salt pig can help keep the salt from clumping in humid kitchens.
History - According to the blog Mundane Essays, a blog in which writer Muness Alrubaiehis researched the origin of the term "salt pig," the use of "pig" is found in Scots and northern English dialect meaning an earthenware vessel.
Significance - On modern food and cooking-related television programming, the salt pig is popular in home-style television kitchens because it is considered to be more stylish than ramekins and salt shakers.
Fun Fact - The salt pig shares its linguistic roots with the piggy bank, as, says Alrubaiehis, "pig, or penny pig can mean an earthenware money-box," as in the popular "piggy bank."
