Wild Hive Bottling Done
Earlier this week, I finally finished crushing and bottling the last of the honey from the wild hive extraction. I tried several methods to extract the honey, but what seemed to work best at this time was to gently warm 1 inch strips of comb in the oven for about 4 minutes, but squeeze the honey out. Long processes...hard process on the hands! I believe I squeezed out around 7 gallons of honey! Let me tell you, using frames and an extractor is much easier!
