Runcible Eats/ Recipes

They dined on mince, and slices of quince,

which they ate with a runcible spoon.

The above illustration and quote are from the nonsense poem The Owl & the Pussycat by Edward Lear. You know the one. It starts with:

The Owl and the Pussycat went to sea

In a beautiful pea green boat,

They took some honey, and plenty of money,

wrapped up in a five pound note.

It is a favourite of mine and I particularly love the nonsense word “runcible”. Lear used it to refer to a spoon, as noted above, he also mentions a runcible goose as well as a runcible cat in other of his works. What does it mean? I don’t really know, but I definitely like it. It’s wonderfully whimscal and puzzlingly inexplicable! Kind of like my sudden cooking obsession…
