    I was doing some end of year cleanup of the TBH at my house and ended up removing several crooked/broken/unruly combs full of honey. I like the dark late-season honey, so I was actually kind of happy even though I'd normally want to leave winter stores alone. Thye still have plenty.

    So I used the crush and strain method and it took forever! I turned on a space heater and heated it up before I could get most of the honey out.
    In the end, there was a 1/2" layer still in the screen that was so thick I couldn't get it off. It was more like candy than honey. Tastes good but you'd have to add fiberglass to your bread recipe to spread this stuff.
    I put the strainer bag back in the hive to let the bees deal with it.
