For all of my complaining about added wax in/on food, it does have its place.  You know I don’t need my fruit and veggies to be pretty, but a lightly waxed apple from my local orchard will keep in cold storage or root cellar for months on end.  And have you spied the new beeswax food wrap?  It is meant as a replacement for plastic wrap.  You can even make your own.  Cool.  This next Call is also an excellent use of wax.  Take a look…
