Lick the spoon

Recommended Posts

Yesterday I was making a sandwich and noticed that I've gotten in the habit of licking the spoon clean of Dijon mustard.

I used to always lick the mayonnaise spoon, which is a habit I'm pretty I picked up in Spain. These days, I've broken myself of that one.

So what can you not help but lick straight from the spoon?

Yogurt, honey, lemon curd...

Pretty much anything that's made it on to a spoon (or a spatula).

I have no self control!

Another vote for mayo (Best Foods/Hellman's only please), sour cream, mustard and peanut butter.

And the first vote for dulce de leche or Mrs. Richardson's caramel sauce. These 2 products are simply not safe in my home.

Fruit cake and/or biscuit mix. A caring father would have introduced his son to this pleasure from my childhood, but it was just too hard for me to give up.

If I've gone and made the spoon dirty I'm more than likely going to lick it, why waste good food even if it is just a tiny amount clinging to the spoon? though I’ll go out of my way to get a spoonful of many things including condensed milk, jam, nutella, honey ...basically anything to satisfy that sugar craving

Ganache, any type of frosting, peanut butter, cookie dough, cake batter, dill pickle juice (when I was a kid, I used to deliberately put extra juice on the plate of dill pickle chips I had as a snack after school and I'd drink it when I'd finished the pickles), ice cream, any kind of sauce I'm making while cooking...yeah, you get the idea. I'm a spoon licker. Nothing is safe around me.

Sweetened Condensed Milk. Spoon for me, but I have to wrest the can away from my husband.

Kinda everything, and I lick cooking spoons too(no, I do NOT put them back in)--but the sweetened condensed milk for me, too, is drunk right out of the can. Childhood habit.

OK, well, that's a different animal.

If we're talking guzzling straight from the container, I have only one to 'fess up to. Hershey's Chocolate Syrup in the squeeze bottle, or...even better...Trader Joe's Midnight Moo in the squeeze bottle. No other delivery implement required. Open nozzle, insert into mouth, and squeeze.

Luckily, its a single person household, so no one else need worry about the fact I've been slobbering all over the chocolate syrup bottle.... :wink:
