One of the questions that we get asked most often is how to oil cutting boards. That’s probably because cutting and bread boards are one of our best sellers in our shop, From: Susie. Specifically, our Made in Texas cutting boards, which are handmade by local craftsmen, at 8FD Designs, are a shop favorite. Here are a few that I love!
Not only are wooden boards beautiful to decorate with, but they are a kitchen necessity. In addition, creating charcuterie style food boards are very popular for parties, holidays and shareable snacking! For example, I love to make charcuterie boards for family game or movie night and afternoons spent at the lake or pool. Click here for 5 ingredients that I always include on a charcuterie board!
Treat dry or worn boards with food grade mineral oil once every month or two. For example, Howard makes a great cutting board oil. A conditioned board prevents the wood from cracking and warping. Plus, wood that is moisturized tends to be waterproof which prevents odors & bacteria from penetrating into the wood.
For an extra layer of protection, use a food grade beeswax and mineral oil combination, like the Boos Block Board Cream. This can be applied after oiling a few times a year.
