Heirloom Silver Serving Spoons

Silver serving spoons are beautiful pieces that may be used for a variety of entertaining tasks. The wide, generous bowl makes them the ideal size to accompany with many side dish favorites ranging from Classic Potato Gratin, The New Macaroni & Cheese or Lemon-Butter Asparagus With Fresh Herbs to seasonal salads such as Bacon-Spinach Roasted Potato Salad. Look to these hard working pieces particularly when planning family-style or buffet menu service. Learn how to polish them & truly make them shine with my simple technique.

How To Polish Silver

A bit of cleaning will need to be addressed in order to have heirloom silver looking its’ best. To remove the tarnish quickly & effectively, particularly from spoons that may be used for serving a Classic Grits Casserole, place settings & cake servers with intricate details, my two step method will tidy them so that only minor polishing will be needed during the remaining season. Once the task is complete, use them for casual or holiday entertaining.

Line a 13 x 9-inch baking pan with aluminum foil with the shiny portion facing upwards. Place the silverware in a single layer in the pan being certain all of them make direct contact with the foil. Bring 8 cups of water to a boil. Sprinkle 4 teaspoons baking soda over the utensils, then pour the water over them. Let stand a few minutes in order for the chemical reaction to remove the tarnish. Once shiny, remove them from the solution with a pair of tongs & rinse them under water. Dry the pieces & use a little commercial cleaner such as Wright’s Silver Polish & a soft cloth to buff them further for a beautiful shine. Wash the silverware well with soapy water before using. The silverware should only need a quick additional polish or two with commercial cleaner during the upcoming months. Tuck away the silver when not in use by placing in zip top bags to keep it looking its’ best longer.
