Hand Dipped Beeswax Candle
Made in Alston in Cumbria, by the inimitable Ted Thompson and his team, these beautiful candles have a natural tapered shape, the result of the process by which they are made, properly crafted by hand.
Dipping has long been a method of candle making, and when candles were essential to life in the country, rushlights were made by dipping the pith of rushes in mutton fat or dripping. Only the church and the wealthy would be able to afford beeswax candles.
For every ten tons of honey only a quarter ton of beeswax is produced. Larger beekeepers in this country can keep over a thousand hives, often this wax is wasted and so it’s a delight to see these beautiful objects light up our homes.
Choose from sizes: Large, Medium or Taper
Burn time 24hrs. All candles sold in pairs joined at the wick.
When your meat arrives simply pop it into your freezer.
When you have chosen what you would like to eat, drop your items, still in their individual packaging into cool water and wait for 15 minutes until they are fully thawed. Once fully thawed remove the packaging and get cooking.
You can also gently thaw any items by leaving them in the fridge or at room temperature.
