A natural alternative to clingfilm (made using my beeswax, 100% cotton, jojoba and coconut oil only)

These packs are the larger
33 cm square packs. They are aimed mainly at sandwiches in children's packed lunches, which is why I have used some child-friendly fabrics.

This size would also be useful for covering a bowl of salad, leftover trifle, cold cooked meat , plate of sandwiches etc on a table or in the fridge.

£6 each

These packs are 25 cm square and are £4 each.

They could be used to wrap the exposed end of a large piece of fruit, eg melon, grapefruit, a lump of cheese ..........

 

     

Finally, these are 16cm square packs and are good for protecting a cut cucumber or lemon, wrapping an onion, small leftovers, a few nuts, raisins or biscuits for lunch etc.

£2.50 each

Special price: Buy a large and medium pack and get a small pack free, ie £10 for all three

Still on a steep learning curve with my bee colonies, I have started to save their wax, rather than discard it, as I did originally. The antibacterial properties of beeswax and honey have been well documented, and its uses are still being researched. I only have room for two colonies, so the amount of wax they generate is limited each year.

TO USE , simply place item/s in an appropriately sized wrap and enclose in your hands, thus warming the wax slightly and shaping the wrap around the food. As wraps cannot be cleaned in hot water (the wax will melt), it is
not advised to use them for raw fish or meat.

TO CLEAN, wipe gently in cool/warm water and mild washing up liquid, rinse and air dry. Your wrap is then ready to be used again and again and will last for at least a year, if used properly. It can be refreshed after a few months by placing on a baking tray and popping in an electric oven (140 deg C) - not microwave oven - for a minute and wafting in the air by the top corners for a few seconds. When the wrap can be resurrected no more, it can be composted or used as a firelighter.

 

As beeswax is waterproof and has anti-bacterial properties, it is the ideal ingredient to use for wrapping food. The material I use is 100% cotton. I also add a small amount of organic Jojoba oil which has anti-fungal and anti-microbial properties and helps to keep the cloth flexible when folded. The only other ingredient is organic coconut oil which also helps keep the wrap pliable.

Each wrap has an enclosure with instuctions, just in case you throw away the label,
which also has instructions on the back.


A small selection of wraps is being sold by Blofield Farm Shop in their newly refurbished part of The Oaklands Hotel in Yarmouth Road, Norwich. The manager now has a beautiful Cafe/restaurant under cover on the terrace. There is also a shop selling local foods, including my wraps.



All wraps come with an instruction sheet tucked into the card wrapper
