Most everything I have read suggest that you can use a sausage grinder for making "seed" for creamed honey. I don't have one (might could borrow one) but I was wondering if one could use a blender and/ or food processor (and how) for making the seed.
Anyone ever tried this?
Don't know how it would work, seems like more trouble than anything. For seed I just use a package of store bought creamed honey, or keep some from previous batches. I think the blender or food processor would put too much air into it, not to mention possibly burning out the motor.
Ah, when will beekeepers learn that
mis-use of the wife's kitchen gear
in beekeeping is the leading cause
of beekeeper murder and divorce.
Any "food processor" capable of stiring a
decent quantity of honey would be about
the size, wattage/amperage and price of
a Hobart bakery-sized mixer.
Anything less, and you are going to learn
all about the "thermal fuse" built into
most motors of food processors and consumer-
grade mixers up to an including the 6-quart
Kitchen-Aids. The thermal fuse will blow,
and you will have to mail-order a replacement,
learn to solder, and spend a half hour
I use a metal paint stirrer, which fits into
the chuck of an electric drill. It looks
like a Benz hood ornament on a longish
(2.5 feet) shaft. Works fine, even on
a 5-gallon pail of creamed honey (my
largest "batch" size, simply because the
pails are handy.
