Since the kitchen in our new house is short on counter space, Chareva bought a kitchen cart with a wooden cutting-board top. The manual included instructions on how to season the cutting board with oil.
Coconut oil is good, according to the manual, because it’s highly stable. Mineral oil is fine, too.
But, explained the manual, you don’t want to season the cutting board with vegetable oils because … wait for it … THEY GO RANCID TOO QUICKLY.
But hey, if you leave them in a cupboard for a few months and then cook your meals in them, that’s good for you. Just ask the health experts.
