It’s a beekeeping update. Sort of. I wanted to show ya’ll how I deal with all that left over wax from my crush and strain honey extraction. It’s pretty simple. Wash the wax with cold water. Then melt it in a pot with 2″ of water in the bottom. Let cool over night, dump out water. Then scrape the bottom of the wax hunk with a knife. Once all the loose goo comes off, go through the process again. I took 4-5 melting to be satisfied with the results. It’s pretty easy all things considered. Just time consuming.
