Backyard Honey May 14, 2015 10:17
This is a great picture of Wes and I harvesting honey. As you can see we do it the old fashion way. A bucket, A rubber Band and Cheese Cloth. I'm holding a frame of honey (it was really heavy and I had a hard time holding it and trying to take the pic ha!!) the frame is what I pulled out of the Super. I scrape off all of the honey place the frame back into the super and let the bee clean it up and use it again. They do a much better job than I ever would of cleaning the frame so I don't even try.
We strain the honey from the wax and then use clean the wax and use it to make lip balm & candles. The honey is used in place of sugar in a lot of recipes. Also I use it to add some sweetness to my salad dressings.
