Rice paper

This is an edible wafer paper made from potato starch, water and vegetable oil.

Uses: Rice paper is used to line baking trays to prevent sweet bakes such as biscuits and meringues from sticking. The paper does not influence the flavour of the items baked.

To store: Keep in a cool, dry place for up to 1 year.

To use: Rice paper sheets can be overlapped if a large area needs to be covered or they can be cut into individual shapes.
