We cut out a couple of pounds of comb because so many neighbors are requesting "honey with the comb in it." Without any forethought, we just cut a slab that would fit the mouth of our jar and then topped the jar off to the regular weight. Lo and Behold, a chunk of honey comb will float in that golden syrup. So too will any loose beeswax. And careless transportation will produce even more floating flakes to foil the presentation.
What do we need to do to improve the appearance and presentation when we do this again?
Is there a trick to cutting and handling the comb to reduce damage?
