Well, my honey extraction is completed! Now it’s time for me to clean up the stickiness!!
One of my readers asked about my extracting set-up. A picture is worth a thousand words.
The big silver thing is the centrifugal extractor. The honey then goes through two mesh strainers and comes out into the bottling tub. From there, I pour it into bottles straight from the dish washer.
Some people extract their honey in a garage or a basement, but that seems too un-hygienic to me.
Even though honey comes from outside and all, I like to keep things squeaky clean after it comes indoors. Hey, I’m a Virgo!
Hygiene aside, what I’m most proud of about my honey is that I don’t treat my bees with anything. The honey is completely organic. I don’t think there are very many beekeepers around who can make that claim.
But enough bragging. Here are my bottles, glowing and finished!
