KO Cooks! Oil Your Woodenware
This is a great time to tackle those kitchen projects that get pushed to the back burner.
One of those projects is oiling your woodenware. Wood cutting boards, salad bowls, butcher blocks and utensils need to be oiled every once in a while. Oiling them not only makes them look beautiful, but it also seals them so they don’t absorb moisture and bacteria, and it conditions them so that your cutting boards remain flat, your wooden utensils don’t warp and discolor, and your salad bowls don’t crack.
You will need food safe mineral oil, and a cloth or paper towel. Rub a generous amount of oil on all sides of your clean, dry, woodenware. Once fully coated, let your items sit on a cooling rack for 12 hours or overnight to allow the oil to be fully absorbed. Wipe any excess off and use! A good rule of thumb for when you need to do this is to look over your wares and oil them when they look dull and dry.
