Spoon Care

 Hey everyone what's been going on?!  We had snow for the first time yesterday!  The kids thought it was FABULOUS!!  Mommy did not think so since it was freezing cold out.

 So last winter I saw this post on Food In Jars (one of my favorite blogs).  I've been meaning to make it for ages and finally got a round to doing it.
 The wax I used is from the same bee keeper that I get our raw honey from.  I paid about $2 for the quarter pound of wax.  Chopping it up really helped it fit into the jar and melt quicker.
 The mineral oil came from the pharmacy section of the grocery store. I will say that I wish I had reused a tin can like Frugally Sustainable did here instead of using the mason jar.  If the spoon butter was not going to be moved into smaller containers this probably would have been great but it is kind of a pain in the butt to clean up from the glass (and I'm lazy don't forget that).
 The mixture looks a bit like chicken fat or something doesn't it?
I got several of these cute small jars out of just one batch!  They are going to be great holiday gifts along with a set of spoons for some of my cooking friends.  I love the way they made my bamboo spoons look too!
