Ricks Home and Garden Preserving Wax Granules, is pure parafin wax, and is certified food grade.  It is also granulated meaning you only need melt as much as you need and the rest can  just stay in the bag. So much easier than melting or shaving off whole blocks.

This is the perfect airtight sealing agent for jams, pickles, chutneys, and relishes.

This pack contains 200g food grade paraffin wax

The air tight seal it creates ensures freshness and longevity, especially favoured for for those preserves with a high vinegar content, such as pickles and chutneys.  Instuctions are included with your purchase but here they are so you  know what to do before you purchase.
Preserving wax when used with jam also assists in eliminating crystallisation and discolouration due to oxidisation
To Prepare
This needs to be melted first, BUT Do not melt in a saucepan on the hot plate, this must be melted using a double boiler preferably or a bowl or jug over boiling water, metal always is best as it cannot break or crack. This product is flammable.and when molten will be hot so be very careful.
To use
leave a 12mm (1/2 inch) space above your product in the jar, clean and dry the inside of the jar in this space. Whilst the contents of the jar are still hot, half fill the space you have left with melted wax. When cold fill again to just below top of jar
I remember my Grandmother would get a piece of string and make a loop and tie knot in the end and put the knotted end of the loop on top of the first layer of wax before pouring the second. She used this to help her to get it out of the jar with ease. One day I lit them all thinking they were candles, she was not impressed, but thats what they reminded me of
