In the saucepan, mix 1/4 cup chopped Paraffin wax with 1/4 cup mineral oil.
Heat on low, until just melted.
Pour a small amount onto block or board. Using your hand, smear the melted wax over a small area.
Make sure that the wax is not too hot first.
I think this butcher block has some homemade sourdough bread in its future!

Keep warm until served. Serve with pure maple syrup or a mixture of syrup and pureed fruit. And don't forget plenty of cultured butter!
First, a reminder of the former kitchen. Notice the soffits? Please notice the soffits and not the cluttered counters!
When this house was built (1969), there weren't as many gadgets and gizmo's for the kitchen, so this size was appropriate for getting the job done.
Enter 2010 and the modern pioneer chick. I like to bake my own bread and ferment things on the counter, but really, this was a fire alarm just waiting to sound off!
Because there was no pantry, we had food scattered all over the house, tucked in closets, under beds and in the garage~not to mention on top of the fridge!
We still have the tile backsplash to add, but right now, we're just happy to have a kitchen!
I cannot describe the joy I feel...
...to have all of the food...
...in one place!!!
See the drawers under the stovetop?
My cast iron pans finally have a home.
Remember the old doorway?
