Real Raw Honey

After watching step-by-step videos (many of them) on YouTube, we decided to give the process of extracting clean honey a try.  Fortunately we have tools from our home beer-brewing kit that can be used.  The honey comb ‘salvaged’ from our Big Bee Move was placed in fully sterilized container and very gently hand crushed. The sticky mixture was then put in fine sieve to slow drip into a sterilized bucket with a tap. Yes, we were forewarned that the drip procedure might take 3 days so we left it slooowly dripping, safely covered by a mesh, for 4 days ~ just in case.

And today, we actually saw clean pure honey dripping from the tap into our prepared bottles. We ended up with 2 bottles which caught us by surprise ~ a nice surprise!
