The olive tree is the heart and soul of Palestine. Every year during the olive harvest, farmers prune their trees, which means we have mountains of pruned wood. These prunings are used by the olive wood artisans of Bethlehem to create Christmas nativities and Christmas tree ornaments, olive wood utensils, spatulas, and more.
How to care for olivewood? To maintain your olivewood cooking utensils in a good state, it is recommended to wash them with warm water, without adding much soap. Dry the utensil immediately after, and treat it with oil using a cloth. Please don't put it in the washing machine!
