    Question

    I've seen an article in American Bee Journal about it, in a health food store and I finally bought some from a place in Vermont called "Dirt Works".
    It says it isn't heated or strained. I did notice the wax, pollen and propolis - but no little bee parts.
    Have any of you made this and is it worth it?
    Thanks

    It's a bit of a misnomer to say it's unfiltered. You have to filter some to get the bigger pieces of wax out, but mine is coarsely filtered and unheated. I don't make it, I just don't heat it. The bees make it.

    It's heavenly. I don't know why anyone would eat the heated filtered uninteresting tasting honey that is usally sold in the grocery store.

    I like it better too. I also bought some regular wildflower honey from them. It came in fat short jars, being it was so cold, it crytalized a bit. I like it much better than the thin stuff that leaks through your bread.

    I will be getting my first bees this spring. I've got my stuff ready - except the foundation. I was thinking that this "raw" honey would be alittle easier for me the first year. Providing it is a good year.

    Thanks!
