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.
Maintain your olivewood cooking utensils by always washing with warm water, without using much soap. Dry the utensil immediately after, and treat it with olive oil using a cloth. Please don't put it in the dish washer!
