Anybody interested in a "Schwiddel"...?


is the Rhineland slang for a large natural bristled brush used to apply water or eggwash to breads, rolls and pastries. I'm thinking about ordering some through my sister in Germany and have them shipped to me. If anybody else is interested, please let me know. I don't know yet how much the shipping will cost (since I don't know yet how many I will end up ordering) - just checking to see if there's interest.

This website has four sizes available. In the past, I have used a large one for breads and the smallest one for eggwash.
