I got 2 pounds of beeswax as a gift,
Since we dont have vegtable shortening (I assume this is palm oil or sometimes of this sort?)
Can one use margarine? It contains vegtable oils,hardened veg oils,emulsifiers (lechitin),E471 (gylicerol family fatty acid),E435(a type of fatty acid),flavour\aroma additives,D+A vitamins.
Something tells me its no good, too much additives. What should it be substitute with?
Im thinking lard but some of my friends keeps kosher and I dont want to use pork or mix dairy with meat products.
