Do wooden spoons become "seasoned"?

GDSinPA | Dec 21, 200602:09 PM     21

I love a nice wooden spoon. Seems like they're good for all kinds of tasks -especially if you have toddlers (just kidding!)

Anyway, a couple of my spoons are getting old, but they are no where near cracking or chipping. In fact, they seem to be better with age. Hardly anything sticks to them, and nothing stains them, even temporarily. They seem to have that seasoned look, clearly lighter on the handle, and darker as you head down to the spoon end.

Do wooden spoons become seasoned? If so, perhaps it's just certain quality or materials?

Thoughts?
