Real Honey!

7.75 pounds of honey, from the farmer we visited. We loved learning about his bees, and he was happy to share. He told us about how the bees start making honey comb from the inside of the hive, so each section is actually from a different time period. He said that depending on where the bees had been at that particular time, you’ll get alfalfa honey or asparagus honey or apple honey. And when he sends his hives down to California to help pollinate the almonds, it’s almond honey.

He also said that the bees let the honey evaporate the moisture until it’s exactly 30% water (? I think) and then they put the top layer of wax over it. So if you pull out a honeycomb before it’s ‘capped’ it’ll be really runny honey.
