We couldn’t wait any longer to taste our home-grown honey, so we selected one frame from the full super.
Because there are still bees on the frame Brian made a box to put the frame in with a porter bee escape fitted at the top. This little plastic device allows the bees to escape from the box but they can’t get back in. When we were sure all be bees had buzzed off, we took out the frame and prepared to scrape off the wax and the honey.

Three pots of dark, luscious, runny Queen’s Park honey. And how does it taste? It’s a strong, rich taste, almost like molasses…delicious and extremely healthy.
