We’ve been spending some time making beeswax food wraps for our clients, and it is so easy we thought we should do a video on how to do it.
Beeswax wraps are indespensible in the kitchen for preserving foods, from keeping cheese from drying out to covering those leftovers for tomorrow’s lunch, to wrapping salads and other goodies you’re taking to a picnic.
Amanda and I spent a little time in the honey house the other day and put together this helpful little video.
You don’t need much to get into making these reusable food wraps: just some beeswax, jojoba oil, dammar resin and some easily-found kitchen items. Oh, and some 100% cotton material that you want to turn into wraps.
We’ve created wrap kits, complete with everything you need except the cloth (we find people have varying tastes, and frankly it’s fun to go and pick out your own patterns!)
We’ll be putting those kits up for sale on the website shortly. In the meantime, here’s Amanda’s instructions on how to make these useful reusable wraps.
Here’s our recipe and instructions that you can also print off.
