This cabbage shredder and box belonged to Mary Ruth Slaton, whose diary is in the Kentucky Historical Society collections and used in the depression-era kitchen of our “A Kentucky Journey” permanent exhibit. Mary Ruth mentions using some of the items from this collection in her daily journal. For example, in an entry dated Aug. 7, 1939, she mentions canning kraut in the afternoon. Her cabbage shredder was most likely used in this task.02/23/19
