Need to extract the honey from the comb. The comb is not all clean and it was hard getting it off the frames in tact. Normally, honey is extracted using a centrifuge either electric or hand worked. No centrifuge working down here. I don't have one and my bee buddy says his machine is bust.
It really won't do to find a bees leg on the honey spoon. So.........out with the nylon stockings and a straining we go. Who needs nylon stockings in the tropics anyway. Perfect use for them.
I crush the comb with my fingers into the stocking, stuff it full and hang over a bowl for a few hours. After some time of having my hands covered in honey my skin feels great. It is a very powerful honey.
This honey is very rich in pollen and no sugar solution whatsoever. We do not need to feed the bees down here. Lots of people suffer from allergies in this town and I think this honey could really help them. I am very excited indeed about my first honey harvest.
