Come spend a cozy Saturday in the Cabrillo bakeshop with local beekeeper/educator Emily Bondor and Chef Anne to make beeswax food wrap, honey-lavender biscotti, and immunity tincture- all from locally sourced bee products!
Beeswax food wrap is cloth coated with beeswax that is used in place of plastic wrap or Ziplocs, and is biodegradable and environmentally friendly. It is malleable and slightly sticky, so it wraps around just about anything, and is reusable for about a year with proper care. Students will make beeswax food wrap with pure beeswax from Emily’s hives, and will also create a healing tincture by combining propolis, local honey, lemon juice and apple cider vinegar to make a spray for sore throats. With Chef Anne’s guidance students will also learn how easy it is to make twice-baked Italian cookies. Our honey-lavender biscotti will be made with Emily’s beautiful honey, and students will leave with the recipe to share this delicious treat with family and friends.
Everyone will make and take home a piece of beeswax food wrap, a dozen fragrant, delicious biscotti, and a small bottle of immunity tincture. Preserve food, combat winter ailments, and enjoy delicious baked goods, all with wonderful bee-products!
