Detailed instructions for the food wraps blocks:
Instructions for making food wraps using the blocks. This is for 60 gr of the blocks. For purchasing, please visit my online store by pressing the button below.
You will need:
- A grater. It is ideal to have a dedicated one for the blocks.
- Three pieces of 100% cotton fabric, washed and cut to 30 x 30 cm. If you use light weight cotton fabrics, you can make six wraps. Medium weight cotton fabrics will yield slightly thicker wraps, but you may not be able to make six (may yield five).
- An iron. If you can buy a cheap iron that has no holes on the bottom, it would be easier and you would not have to clean your clothes’ iron every time.
- Parchment paper.
- A silicone mat. As a heat-proof layer.
- Clean paper or cloth to cover the surfaces.
- Wash the cotton fabric and dry it completely. Then cut to the desired sizes using pinking sheers.
- Cover your work surface with a piece of cloth, to protect from any possible spills.
- Place the silicone mat on your work surface.
- Spread one wrap (cut with piking sheers) on a piece of parchment paper. Please keep in mind that the parchment paper should be a few inches larger than your wrap, so that the melted wax mix does not spill out of the paper.
- Grate some of the block (about 15-20 gr) on the wrap and spread it evenly. It’s better to start with a smaller amount and add more if needed. You can save on the block if you iron two wraps together, meaning, place one wrap on the paper, grate some of the block to cover the wrap, and place another wrap on top. This way, the melted mixture is sandwiched between two wraps and you can use less for more wraps.
- When the wrap is fully soaked with the mix, take off the parchment paper and place the wrap flat on another paper to cool down completely.
