Last of this seasons honey jarrred! This is creamed or set honey!

I’ve been away from the bees, they’ve now all  been fed, and now wrapped up for the winter. We will see what happens this winter. A few chores left to do, before the frosts, mouse guards to go on hives, external insulation on some of the hives, and finally this year treatment, nearer Christmas Day, a trickle of oxalic acid, to knock down the remainder of varroa mites.

The final honey from this Spring harvest has now been creamed and jarred, to create a creamed or soft set honey.
