Extract, Filter & Bottle
Well, I am almost done working my honey for the season. Last night I used my extractor to spin out 20 frames of honey from three of my hives. This morning I filtered the honey, and tonight I filled close to sixty bottles with some honey still left in the bucket. I bought 192 half-pound bottles a few weeks ago, and they have all been used! I've also filled 10 half-pint Mason jars, and still have about a gallon left over to bottle. That is over 100 pounds of honey!!! Wow!!! I definately did better than I expected to do this year.
