Tthe black color on this pie server was caused by fire. Cherry wood. By Jonathan's Spoons.
Love your spoons and they'll love you back! With proper care, Jonathan's® Wild Cherry Spoons will last a lifetime. Jonathan recommends cleaning them with a Scotchbrite® pad using soap and warm water. Occasionally oil them with natural coconut oil using a paper towel or cloth. The color of the spoons will deepen with use and age. Jonathan does not recommend putting them in the dishwasher, as the drying cycle dehydrates the wood rapidly which can cause cracking. Cleaning agents may age the surface of the wood prematurely.
