We love our new range of Beeswax Wraps and Vegan Food Wraps. No more single use cling film to keep our food fresh!
They are handmade in the Cotswold’s using locally sourced beeswax, organic jojoba oil, natural pine resin and organic GOTS (Global Organic Textile Standard) certified cotton. There are even Vegan friendly versions.
We recommend refreshing your wrap every few months to keep them feeling new and sticky. If you notice that your wraps have started to crack, it’s time to give them a refresh. It’s really easy, super quick and can be done in your Aga Range cooker.
You will need…
Fits on Runners Full Oven Size Baking Tray or one big enough to lay your wraps on.
Non- Stick Liner for Full Oven Size Baking Tray or one big enough to fit your tray. If you don’t have a non-stick liner, you can use baking paper instead.
Place the non stick liner on your baking tray and lay your beeswax wrap on it. If your wrap is larger than the tray, you can lightly fold it in half and half again if needs be, before laying on your tray. Slide the tray with your beeswax wrap into your baking oven for about 2 - 3 minutes. Check it half way through to see if the wrap has become warm and soft. If you have a slightly larger wrap, you may need to leave it in the oven for slightly longer. Just make sure you keep an eye on it anddo not leave it unattended.
Once the wrap is soft, carefully remove the tray from your Aga and gently lift it from the tray. Be careful not to burn your hands.Remember wax gets really hot!Lay the wrap flat on top of parchment or non stick liner to allow the wax to dry. Your wrap should now have lovely smooth and sticky wax on it with no cracks, all ready to use!
Need to give your Beeswax Wraps a bit of a revive? Look here!
If you’ve had your wrap for about a year and have noticed that it’s feeling more like fabric, we recommend giving it a refresh using one of the beeswax refresher blocks.
You will need…
Fits on Runners Full Oven Size Baking Tray or a tray big enough to fit your wraps on.
Non- Stick Liner for Full Oven Size Baking Tray. If you don’t have a non-stick liner, you can use baking paper instead.
A fine grater - one just for grating wax.
A pastry brush or similar small brush.
- Pop the non stick liner or baking paper on the baking tray then lay your wrap flat.
- Grate the wax over the fabric and spread as evenly as you can leaving about a one inch space from the edge.
- Now slide the tray with the liner into your baking oven for about 2 - 3 minutes. Watch it carefully to make sure the wax does not melt too quickly.
- Once the wax has melted, remove the tray and carefully brush the wax to evenly coat the wrap. Remember wax gets really hot so you need to be careful!
- You might need to pop it back in the cooker for another minute to keep the wax warm while brushing it.
- Once the wrap is coated with wax, carefully remove them from the tray and lay flat to cool and dry.
- Your wrap should now have lovely smooth and sticky wax on it all ready to use!
