Last week

Sunday Tasmanian - Tassie Living - - HOME -

As a hand­ful of read­ers guessed, last week’s mys­tery item was a wooden French duck press for mak­ing duck ter­rines.

Many read­ers wrote in with the same guess, they all thought that it was used for press­ing tongue, mostly ox but a few other vari­a­tions on that idea too. An­other reader sug­gested it could have been used for can­ning (it re­ally does look like that was a pos­si­bil­ity). A solid guess was a con­trap­tion for ex­tract­ing oil to use in per­fume.

The fastest reader with the right an­swer was Dale For­wood, quickly fol­lowed by Adrian Jack and Doug Ralph.
