    This spring I needed to buy (Still shaking my head) to fill some market orders. Checked two places and it was $119.00 for light and $109.00 for everything else. At 2 dollars a pound from a bulk seller, it kind of ticked me off since it wasn't worth the time to bottle, make some money, and pass it on to the markets. Ended up draining some beautiful comb honey I had on hand.

    If you put it in plastic boxes, dry, it's "Cut Comb" honey. If you put the comb in a jar and fill the jar with extracted honey, it's "Chunk" or "Chunk Comb" honey.

    I've cut it with a sharp knife and with a cutter (like a square cookie cutter). The nice thing about the cutter (for the boxes) is that it's the right size. With the knife you have to measure or eyball it. I lay it on the bottom of the cappings strainer to drip dry and then put them in the boxes.
