|The Hominy Block|
Kentucky pioneers had it rough. They owned few metal utensils; tin cups, iron forks, and spoons were very rare. Nearly all their tools were fashioned of wood, by their own hands.
There were no mills, so each family had a hominy block or wooden bowl with pestle which was used to pound Indian corn, or a rough homemade grater upon which it was grated.
