Applying board butter to a new cutting board is an essential step to protect and condition the wood. Here are the instructions:

What you’ll need:

- Larry Bob’s Board Butter

- Clean cloth or paper towels

- Soft-bristled brush (optional)

  1. Clean the Cutting Board: Before applying the board butter, ensure that the cutting board is clean and dry. Use a mild soap and warm water to remove any dirt, debris, or residue from the surface.
  2. Apply the Board Butter: Using a clean cloth or paper towel, scoop a small amount of the softened board butter and spread it evenly over the entire surface of the cutting board, including the edges and sides.
  3. Work the Butter into the Wood: Use a soft-bristled brush or your fingers to work the board butter into the wood grain. Apply gentle pressure and rub the butter in a circular motion, ensuring that the wood absorbs it evenly.
  4. Let it Soak In: Allow the board butter to soak into the wood for at least an hour or overnight. This will give the wood ample time to absorb the moisture and conditioning properties of the butter.
  5. Buff and Remove Excess: After the recommended soaking time, use a clean, dry cloth to buff the surface of the cutting board, removing any excess board butter that hasn't been absorbed.

Your new cutting board is now protected and conditioned, ready for use.

Reapplying Board Butter After Several Uses

Over time, with regular use and cleaning, the cutting board will gradually lose its protective coating. To maintain its condition and prevent drying or cracking, it's essential to reapply the board butter periodically.

  1. Clean the Cutting Board: Wash the cutting board with mild soap and warm water, and let it dry completely.
  2. Inspect the Surface: Examine the surface of the cutting board for any dry or rough areas that may need extra attention.
  3. Apply the Board Butter: Follow the same steps as applying board butter to a new cutting board (steps 2-5 above). Pay extra attention to any dry or rough areas, ensuring they are well-coated with the butter.
  4. Frequency of Reapplication: The frequency of reapplication will depend on how often you use the cutting board and how well you maintain it. As a general guideline, consider reapplying the board butter every 8-12 weeks or whenever the surface starts to look dry or dull.

By regularly reapplying the board butter, you'll keep your cutting board in excellent condition, extending its lifespan and ensuring a smooth, well-maintained surface for all your cutting and chopping needs.
