Most weekends Mrs Harper Mrs Gorst and I go down to the apiary to inspect the bees and plan for the children's beekeeping week ahead. Today we were met with a huge amount of honey in our supers... so much that we couldn't fit one of the frames back into the hive! We decided to take that frame and divide it into boxes of 'cut comb' Cut comb consists of all the 'hexagons' of wax filled with honey, then sealed by the bees with white coloured wax discs. The whole of these sections can be eaten, even the wax, (though I find it a bit chewy!!) Research suggests that people with Hay fever may benefit from eating local honey comb. We are hoping to extract our honey crop soon, the children are hopeful that this year will be award winning like last year!!
