When I fill my jars, I always have air bubbles in the honey after the jar is full. Anyway to avoid this or help get rid of them after they are there?

Are you putting the honey in the jar straight (via filter) from the extractor ?

My regime is extractor -> coarse filter -> bucket -> rest -> warming cabinet -> skim -> fine filter -> bottling tank -> warming cabinet -> jar.

Tapping honey into the middle of a jar can create bubbles. If possible, angle the jar so that the stream of honey flows down the side (IN--SIDE) of the jar.

The people who show honey (in competitions) expose the filled jars to moderate sunlight. The bubbles rise to the top and the honey gets a sparkle. :roll:
