It will take a couple of days to dry... Make sure to only apply a very thin coat!

"processed oils" all have some dryer additives in them, most of them contain heavy metals and other nasty stuff. I would certainly not want to have that touching my food!

Therefore only pure oils will be suitable for contact with food. BTW, don't trust the label "FDA approved"... they have proven them self over and over again to be wrong
