Kneading Dough with an Old Hand Cranked Food Chopper
I was looking in the back of one of our kitchen cabinets when I came across my mother-in-laws hand cranked Universal No.2 food chopper/grinder. It was in a brown paper bag and all the parts are there. The thing is in perfect condition, although it must be over 50 years old, it's as shiny as the day it was made.
Here are some pictures on Google images of the same model:
It got me to thinking, I wonder if it could be used to knead bread dough by running the dough through it?
Here are some old newspaper articles I found, about using a food chopper to make southern beaten biscuits by putting the biscuit dough through it:
"Put Dough Through Food Grinder For Beaten Biscuits Made At Home" - The Tuscaloosa News - Nov 10, 1955
"Biscuit Dough Took A Beating But The Results Were Worth It" - Lakeland Ledger - Jul 21, 1976
I wonder if you could take it a step further and knead yeast bread dough? Something to try in the future.
