This is a badge bit (BB) that is part of the PEP curriculum.  Completing this BB is part of getting the sand badge in Nest.

In this Badge Bit, you will oil at least 6 wooden kitchen utensils.  (Note that this BB is part of an 8-part choose your own adventure list BB called the Jeeves List. You must complete eight Badge Bits in the Jeeves List.)



Some articles on caring for wooden kitchen utensils
  - Organic Care of Wooden Spoons, Cutting Boards, etc.
  - Proper Care of Wooden Utensils
  - How to Care for Wooden Kitchen Utensils
  - How to Care for Wood Cutting Boards and Utensils ...The Healthy Way
  - Food Safe Oils - Which Should You Be Using?













To complete this BB, the minimum requirements are:
   - you must oil at least 6 wooden utensils, cutting boards, bowls, etc
      - walnut oil is best
      - if allergic to nuts, (edible) linseed and olive oil also work

To show you've completed this Badge Bit, you must provide:
   - a before picture of the wooden kitchen utensils
   - an action shot of you oiling one of the kitchen utensils
   - an after picture of all the wooden kitchen utensils you oiled
   - listing the type of oil you used
   - OR a 2-minute video of you doing this

I used olive oil since I was out of walnut oil for the time being.

It was time to oil our wooden spoon, so I grabbed some pictures while doing it. As you can see, some of these spoons did not get regular oiling for quite some time, and have cracked. Hopefully regularly oiling can keep them alive for a while before they break.

The action shot was hard to get with the phone camera, and shows a rather large amount of coconut oil. I used less on other spoons.

Oh, I also forgot to add: I used coconut oil. It wasn't mentioned in the text of this BB, but was referenced in the videos as a suitable wood oil. This is what we've always used for spoons, knife handles, cutting boards, and such as my partner has had allergic reactions to tree nuts in the past, and coconut isn't a true tree nut.

I have a lovely wooden bread board that I got as a gift this past Christmas.
Decided it was time to get it oiled up so I can use it!

I also re-oiled my wooden kitchen utensils.
I'm using a mix of beeswax and coconut oil which I mix up myself.


Pre-oiled utensils and oil/wax mix


Cutting board in-progress


Finished!

I've been informed that my pics aren't showing up! Let me add them as attachments since that seems to work best

Hi Carolyne, I'm only seeing 5 utensils, is there a 6th hiding somewhere?

No, I only own 5; just posting about this round of piling, so that the next time I treat/oil them I’ll qualify for my badge bit!

Oh, gotcha.  In those cases, it's much easier on the folks approving the BBs if you save the pictures till the end and then post them all in one shot.  Otherwise we get confused and have to ask awkward questions.  And if your second batch of photos ends up a few pages later in the thread, it's a pain to find them all.  Thanks!!!

Ok I’ll make sure to do that! Thanks for letting me know :)
