    I would like to melt down the bridge comb and make stuff with it. a lot of the bridge comb has honey in it. what is the best way to get that honey out and still melt down teh wax? I'd like to do it in a manner that allows me to eat the honey as well! thanks for the input.

    Joseph Pingman!! Hey, friend!!! It's me!!

    Birdog, for larger amounts, squish it and most of it will drain off, or separate on it's own with the honey on the bottom and the wax on top. Check this out, this is what I do with cappings that have honey I don't want to waste:

    Eating it is viable. Crush and strain works.
