Recently I posted about a popular plastic wrap brand and their box and how they keep changing their cutter ! Along with for and against of which way people felt the cutter was best positioned there was also a number of comments -amongst them surprise that I used plastic wrap. In the past years my home and family have gone through major toxic removal in most areas including food , bathroom, laundry, cleaning and kitchen items but I have still used plastic wrap on a number of things that just didn’t work with out it until now !!
The Family Hub Beeswax Food Wraps
Beeswax food wraps are a natural, food safe, environmentally friendly alternative to single use plastic food wrap.
They can be reused many times over if treated with care.
To use: mould to shape with the heat of your hands or use an elastic band if preferred.
Ideal for wrapping cheese, pieces of fruit and vegetables and covering bowls, plates and casserole dishes.
You just wrap the cloth over a bowl or around a piece of fruit, veg or cheese and hold it in place with your hands for a few seconds. The warmth of your hands softens the beeswax in the cloth enough for it to hold its shape. If you need a tight seal over a bowl or casserole etc you can use an elastic band to hold it in place.
Examples below of how I have been using The Family Hub Beeswax Wraps are as follows
Wrapping cut fruit
Using to cover my bowl for rising dough instead of glad wrap !
Wrapping Cheese ! Now this is the block of colby cheese that you buy from the shop. It already has plastic on it but then once its opened you then normally need to wrap it in plastic around the opened end to keep it fresh. So now I use a Beeswax wrap ! I use an elastic band after “moulding” it around the cheese block to keep it firmly on.
Ive not had success with cheese in containers so this will suit me and I’m not wasting more plastic and this is how the cheese is sold.
