Well. My goodness. Fifty-six pounds of honey.
The mega extractor that we borrowed which spins nine frames at a time. We also got to borrow a hot uncapping knife (cuts the wax off of the comb, exposing the honey), an uncapping tank (where all that waxy goodness is drained of honey), and a comb scratcher (used to scratch open comb that the knife doesn’t hit). Fun! Ten of the twenty-five frames we extracted.Tired, sweaty pregnant me with a lovely capped frame of honey. Cappings removed, ready to be extracted. And this is why we have kids. 😉 Bottling time! Look at that lake of honey! After the uncapping tank honey was added in, the total was 56 pounds of honey, and I think around 2 pounds of beeswax that, yes you guessed it, will go into my soap :).
As my husband and I stared at all those filled jars, I said the obvious, “The Lord has been very merciful to us.”
