Delicious Honey On Tap
In the old days, it was common for folks to keep a jar of honey on the kitchen table to be poured over pancakes or toast. Now there is a movement back to real, raw honey. Having honey on tap really is possible, especially with the new and growing level of enthusiasm beekeeping is experiencing in America.
There is really an art and pleasure in tapping into honey in your very own bee hive. It's enjoyable and exciting to check the progress of your honey bees by opening up the hive, lifting out a full frame of honey comb full of honey. Slice open the wax caps and let it flow down the walls of your extractor as your family takes turn spinning. It's fun and is becoming popular. If you want to tap into honey, a real and healthy sweetener, start keeping bees. Give us a call: 217-427-2678
Here are some simple tips in harvesting honey:
1) Make sure the frame of honey is capped with wax. Do not harvest honey that is not capped by the bees or it may not be completely dried and ready.
2) Keep everything clean, including extractors, knives and jars.
3) Screen honey through a micron screen. 400 micron is not really filtering honey, but rather keeping chunks of wax or hive pieces from getting into bottles.
4) Keep bottles clean on the outside. Sticky jars are not attractive.
