Yesterday afternoon, I managed to get out of my jam-maker’s kitchen and work in a room with two irons as well as a pan and a slow cooker which were constantly on. The good news is that we’re not having a heatwave like last summer.
Actually, the real good news is that I came home with a bundle of beeswax wraps, having learned how easy they are to make and saving myself an amount of money by making them at a workshop rather than buying them ready-made.
I’ve never bought or used cling film – I’ve used other means of keeping food in a fridge or carrying it from A to B outside the home. For example, sandwiches go in crisp packets, leftover food in ice cream containers or the pot/plate is covered with another plate. So, in one sense the wraps are now clutter but should it become possible to avoid plastic packaging completely, there may have been a method in my madness in doing yesterday’s workshop.
