BajaBee beeswax wraps and bags serve as excellent food preservatives. Use them to wrap bread, cheese, vegetables, fruits, or pack a snack to enjoy in the great outdoors.
What to pack in BajaBee?
Beeswax wraps and bags are ready to serve you right out of the package. Simply remove them from their wrapping, envelop your food items, and store in your kitchen or refrigerator.
We recommend packing bread, rolls, Christmas cake, and other "dry" pastries without fillings or jams.
If you plan to pack moisture-rich items like your favorite Moravian cake or doughnut, ensure to keep them wrapped for a maximum of three days to prevent potential mold growth.
BajaBee makes for a wonderful cheese and vegetable wrap. You may have bought cheese before with a hard wax layer on the edges, designed to protect the cheese from drying out. In a similar fashion, beeswax wraps also preserve cheese, creating an ideal environment for the cheese to breathe without drying.
If you're a vegetable enthusiast and want your veggies to last, wrapping them in BajaBee and storing them in the refrigerator can extend their shelf life by up to four times compared to simply storing them in the fridge's drawer.
BajaBee beeswax wraps can also be used to wrap fruit or cover a bowl of leftover food. You can even use them to wrap snacks, reducing the need for single-use napkins and plastic bags, and avoiding the inconvenience of peeling a damp napkin off a food container later.
What not to pack in BajaBee
Avoid packing hot or greasy food items in BajaBee, as they may cause steam and spoil quickly. Also, refrain from packing raw meat or fish in BajaBee as they could harbor harmful bacteria which can't be effectively washed off. Remember, beeswax wraps are porous and cannot be washed in hot water.
Caring for BajaBee
Once you remove food, wrap, or bag from BajaBee, simply shake off any remaining crumbs. You can wash them in lukewarm water using a loofah and a bit of eco-friendly soap. Let them air dry, and they're ready for the next use.
How to Use?
BajaBee beeswax wraps and bags naturally adhere due to their properties, so simply press the wrap gently with the warmth of your hands to seal it. To use the beeswax bag, squeeze out the air and fold it.
To effectively preserve food with beeswax wraps, it's important to wrap the food fully, preventing any air from reaching it. Otherwise, they won't perform their preserving function optimally.
Happy wrapping! :)
