What's the wax/plastic aspect of butcher paper made from?
Has anyone tried using butcher paper to wrap frozen foods other than meat? I know it keeps meat fresher than plastic (in our freezer anyway), but what about other foods?
My goal right now is to all but eliminate plastic in the kitchen and food prep, but there are some things that I make ahead and freeze (like bread) and at the moment, our (lack of) schedule makes it difficult to bake bread fresh on demand. Of course, on demand bread baking is the eventual goal, but life keeps getting in the way.
While we are on the topic, what's parchment paper made from? It's sort of plasticy texture too. The box says it uses partly recycled paper, but doesn't specify that it's only paper. Is it just paper and they do something to it to make it so smooth?
Back to experimenting and researching my way to a plastic free kitchen. Thanks in advance for the help.
