Who’s curious about Beeswax Wraps?

Who’s curious about Beeswax Wraps?beeswax wraps

As you guys know, I am a chef. And being in hospitality for many years, it has been a constant bother to me just how much plastic we use. For some time, I have been making an effort to be aware, trying to find a solution, to do my little bit to eliminate the excesses our industry is renowned for. I struggle with the amount of poison we wantonly toss into our environment on a daily basis.

Don’t get me wrong….I love the convenience & the versatility of plastic wrap enormously. In fact, I find it difficult to imagine running a kitchen without it. But there has to be an alternative….

Beeswax Wraps

You can imagine my delight when my gorgeous daughter gave me a selection of her very own beeswax wraps! She lives in the stunning Currumbin valley, has her own hives, & makes these reusable food wraps to, among other things, sell at local markets.

How organic is that!! And as beeswax has anti-bacterial qualities, they help keep our food naturally fresh. They are renewable & reusable. They are biodegradable, eco-friendly, & consciously made with respect. What’s not to love?Beeswax Wraps

  • Beeswax wraps have loads of uses.…like covering a bowl of anything, half a lime or half an onion. For wrapping cheese or butter. To package a snack or sandwich. Slow it down a little & use the warmth of your hands to mould it to your requirements.

But don’t be limited by thoughts of food alone. What about presenting gifts, like pretty soaps or bunches of flowers? Let your imagination run free…. Beeswax Wraps

The simple thing to remember, is that beeswax melts. So keep away from heat. Wait until your food cools down.

  • To clean & maintain….think of them like crockery. Shake off excess crumbs then wipe down with warm or cold water. If needed, soak in sink with a little mild, preferably eco-friendly detergent added. Then rinse & pat dry, leaving on a tea towel to finish. Store in a dry place, rolled or flat. Creases are inevitable & become unique to your particular uses.Beeswax Wraps

I don’t know how long they last, but I know someone who does :))

I know it’s a long way from continued reeking havoc on the earth, but it is one small personal step we can all take towards making a difference, from our own families kitchens.

Happy New Year good people…..Beeswax Wraps

  1. Awesome article mum I’m glad you love them as much as I do!!! I’ve found them amazing at keeping herbs fresh when rolled up stored in the fridge & I also wrap burritos/wraps/kebabs in them 💚

    • Thank you Kel, for the gift, the introduction & the ideas….. actually my brother showed them to me a year or so ago, & I’d been meaning to find them ever since. Yours are special..xxxx
