{Bottled} This Year's Honey

Tuesday, November 04, 2014





Yesterday I filtered the last of the raw honey from our hive this summer.
To separate the honey from the wax I put it in the oven at it's lowest setting and
pour it through a paint strainer so all of the filtered honey can sink to the bottom of the bucket.
Overall, it's a slow but rewarding process!

PS- several of you have asked if we'll be selling our honey again this year.
Since we harvested such a small amount {15lbs compared to last year's 60lbs} our sales will be limited.
Consider this the year of our Harvest House "reserve honey!"

Your honey looks beautiful!! Do you have any more information or a post on how you get the honey from the hive without expensive machines and a centrifuge? I love your simple method and outlook on life
