Beeswax

Beeswax has many uses in the kitchen. In the bakeshop, it may be used to coat molds for cakes to prevent them from sticking to intricate crevasses, finely grated over warm pastry shells to keep crusts crisp once filled & added to glaze for dipping confections. It’s long been used to protect cheeses but Beeswax may also be used to gently cook fish & the distinctive aroma adds just a hint of irresistible flavor that cannot be replicated. It’s always best practices to purchase beeswax from a reputable source ideally directly from local beekeepers. It may be purchased from the internet, however be certain it is pure & food-grade. Beeswax should be stored in a cool location & wrapped in plastic for protection. Once projects are complete, place all utensils in a pot of boiling water. Use a pair of tongs to remove them then wipe with a dishcloth. Learn how to melt beeswax for use in the pastry kitchen.

How To Melt Beeswax

Canelé are little custard cakes traditionally prepared in copper molds. These eye-catching desserts need just a bit of beeswax brushed on the interior of them to aide in removing the canelé once baked as they have a tendency to stick to the crevasses. If using a more updated, non-stick mold, this step may be omitted. However if you have access to the heirloom tins, do not bypass this procedure.

A combination of butter & beeswax may be used to coat traditional canelé molds so the cakes remove from the pans more easily. Melt 1 ounce of pure, food-grade beeswax & 1/4 cup butter in a small saucepan over Low heat. Pick up the pan & gently swirl it together. Pour a small amount of the mixture into each mold, then quickly turn the mold to coat the crevasses. If the mixture in the saucepan becomes firm, place it back over the heat until it melts again.
