Do you use wooden spoons, wooden cutting boards and other wooden utensils in your kitchen? I do!

These hardworking, classic tools have stood the test of time and can even become family heirlooms… if they are properly cared for.

You may have noticed that your wooden tools tend to get dried out over time and maybe you’ve wondered how to to condition them or revive them.

Many website sites suggest using mineral oil as a wood conditioner for cutting boards, spoons, etc. After doing a little research on mineral oil, I was NOT comfortable with the idea of using it in my kitchen.

Instead, I looked around my kitchen and pantry for all natural ingredients that I felt safe using on tools that would come into contact with our food.

This recipe is called “Spoon Butter”, because it’s like you’re buttering your spoons. I love knowing that this spoon butter will condition my wooden tools AND it’s 100% safe for human consumption.

Here’s how to make it:

INGREDIENTS

  • 3 ounces of coconut oil
  • 1 ounce of beeswax (chunk or pastilles)

METHOD

Combine the 2 ingredients in a small glass jar. Place the glass jar in a pan filled with about 2 inches of warm water (do not get water in the jar). Slowly heat the pan of water. The hot water will melt the coconut oil and beeswax. Stir gently to combine ingredients.

HOW TO USE

Remove a small amount of spoon butter from jar and rub thoroughly on wooden spoon, cutting board, etc. Allow to sit for about an hour to fully penetrate wood. If desired, buff off excess with a clean cloth.

There! Now you have a beautiful, shiny spoon that looks like new! With proper care, these spoons and cutting boards can be handed down from generation to generation. How special is that? Enjoy!
