Heirloom Iced Tea Spoons

Silver iced tea spoons tend to get lost in a collection of heirloom utensils however these beautiful pieces should certainly be used. The original purpose for the spoons with their long, signature handle was to make it easier to stir sugar into the tall glasses in which the tea had been poured. While they are always appropriate to display when ritzy spring socials are at the forefront, they can be used for a number tasks. Feature the vintage pieces when lavish cocktails are being served as the finish or in many cases the intricate details add instant charm & replace the standard bar spoon. I keep an assortment of vintage silver utensils in glasses throughout my kitchen & reach for the tea spoons time & time again when preparing mayonnaise based salads & spreads such as Pecan Chicken Salad & Party Pimiento Cheese. They’re just the right length to scour the bottom of the jar to capture that last little bit.

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.
