Antiques Monroe Show: Chop, chop
Times photo: Jim Winter These 1867 Norwegian choppers likely were used to prepare sauerkraut during the winter. Cabbage was cut and chopped in large stone crocks, then left to ferment over a period of weeks.
MONROE - The chopper is about two feet long, with a wood handle making up two-thirds of its length. The blade, shaped like a bell, is about eight inches long and four inches wide at its widest point. The date of 1867 is engraved on one side of the blade.
