How to Treat Bamboo Cutting Boards with Walnut Oil
For Christmas I was gifted some brand new bamboo cutting boards. For those of you that might own bamboo cutting boards or other natural wood boards, I wanted to share with you how to treat bamboo cutting boards with walnut oil.
Treating bamboo cutting boards with walnut oil will preserve their beauty and make them last longer. It’s best to treat the boards before you use them for the first time, but you can still use this method on boards that you already own.
1. First you will need walnut oil. You can get it at most grocery stores. If you don’t have walnut oil you can also use slightly warmed coconut oil. Most other vegetable oils are not recommended because they turn rancid too quickly.
2. Dip a cloth or paper towel into the oil and lightly coat (your completely dry) bamboo cutting board.
3. Let the bamboo cutting board air dry until the oil is absorbed.
4. Repeat every month or so. You’ll be glad you did!
