No need to worry about the kitchen...I heard the wives feel privledged to take care of that after a good honey harvest.....(helmet & flame suit on)....lol :razz:If it's like my first frame, it'll be the best honey you've ever had! When I pulled my first frame I didn't have an extractor yet, so I did the "crush and strain". There's some good videos on youtube that shows how to do that. But it's not hard. You just scrape the comb off the frame into a strainer or collender then into a bowl. Just be sure and clean up the kitchen!
It was brand new comb and on the edge of a brood box, I don't ever remember any brood in that frame.DLMKA- Even though your comb honey sections are foundationless, you won't want to be making comb honey from any comb that has been used to raise brood in. You said you hijacked the capped honey frame from a busy brood box. Hopefully it was brand new comb that had not been used for brood rearing. I'd guess that few people would want to be chewing on comb that has old bee cocoon layers in it... eeew!
My grandmother always put sugar in her cornbread and I do the same. And DLMKA, you'll find honey tastes good on anything, even cheerios and corn flakes. Congrats on your first honey harvest. Very good picture as well. Thanks.Sugar in cornbread, sorry never heard of that before, don't think I would like that.
