so yesterday i thought hmmm i think i’ll jar up that honey!!! mmmmm little did i know it would take me all day!! The honey has been collected from the hives and spun in the extractor. It was then drained into huge honey buckets where it set! My job melt the honey. This took ages!! I put it in the oven on a really low setting!
Then I poured it thro the sieve:
Finally I opened the tap at the bottom and let the honey drain into the jars! I think i must have eaten at least a jar of honey from catching ther drips!!
To finish i labelled the honey and ta da… my honey…
It’s amazing to think that the bees have made such a scrummy honey! Well done to our bees! so guess what i had for breakfast today??
I also made an attempt at my first ever hanging baskets… oh the fun… can’t wait to see them grow…
Anyway… I’ll take some pics of the other processes of making honey as we do it!!
