Wondering how to best utilize your beeswax wraps? Femino’s Beeswax Food Wraps are a great way to cut down on waste in the kitchen. But, replacing your plastic wrap with this eco-friendly option is just the start!
Beeswax wraps are slowly becoming a major part of western households, so here are some DIYs to inspire you.
It More Than Just Wraps – It Hugs & Seals
Fruits come in strange shapes, and chopping them can make their form even stranger. A plastic food wrap is not only awful for the environment, but it also fails to seal and stick around sliced fruits and vegetables. Wax wraps, on the other hand, are sticky and flexible by nature, embracing the curve of your sliced apple, onion, or avocado and producing a seal that keeps them fresher for longer. Our small 20x21 cm wrap is perfect for this kind of usage.
Covering Mason Jars
Mason jars are fantastic, but their lids have a tendency to suddenly vanish. Beeswax wraps provide a tight seal around glass containers, making them ideal for covering and wrapping around the mouths of multi-sized mason jars.
Wax wrapping will keep the items contained, whether you're storing goods in the fridge or fermenting jars in the cupboard.
Tip: If the items in the jar are likely to build up pressure, use our bigger wraps (31cm x 31cm) to close down the sides.
Welcome Freshness – Goodbye Food Waste
We're all trying to cut down on unnecessary waste, which is why it's critical to keep your food as fresh as possible. Wrapping your leafy greens, crunchy vegetables, and soft breads in a beeswax wrap as soon as you buy them can make them last twice as long! A fantastic technique to prevent food waste and extend the life of fresh foods.
Your Own Piping Bag
If you enjoy baking, this is a game changer! Simply roll up one of our bigger wraps, pop the nozzle in the end, and work your magic instead of using single-use plastic piping bags. The sweetest part is that you can wash your wrap and reuse it for something completely different!
‘Knead’ To Store Your Dough?
When rolling out pastry and baking dough, use our extra-large wraps as a base. It not only keeps the dough from sticking to your counter, but it also makes it easier to place the crust over a pie without it separating!
If you have any leftover dough, simply wrap it in plastic wrap to keep it fresh and save it for later.
