  2. Re: Phrases I just wouldn't have expected to say till I started beekeeping

    My honey's a keeper!

    We have to work the bees before we go on vacation.

    Let's keep bees. Don't tell the neighbors.

    The buzzards (bees) are busy today.

    I'm not afraid of getting stung.

    Re: Sanitizing Honey Jars

    As far as new glass canning jars goes, there is a residue inside them that does not come off in the dishwasher. We hand wash our new canning jars for this reason. It seems to be an oily residue.

    Re: Couple Balm Questions. Labels - Pouring

    Hambone,
    Rather than use a dixie cup, use a clean, waxed carton from orange juice. Put a little water in the bottom first then add the (filtered) melted wax. Rip off sides when wax is hard.

    Use one layer of heavy duty paper towel. I line a stainless steel BBQ basket. Drains into a SS pan with distilled water in it. Did this yesterday and it looks completely clean and beautiful.
