How To Reduce Moisture Content?
Tonight we had a "honey tasting" at our local bee club. Someone had a refractometer and tested our honey whilst we were all enjoying sampling each others local honey. The fellow doing the testing said my jar of extracted honey was reading about 19% on his refractometer. I was quite surprised! I extracted only capped frames of honey immediately after taking them off the hive this summer. In fact, I have gotten so many compliments on our honey I was thinking of entering a bottle for judging in some local honey shows. However, if my bottled honey is actually 19% that would disqualify me. So...now what do I do? I have several bottles in 1 lb jars and would like to reduce the moisture content in them. Is there anything practical that I could do? Would heating to a low temp for a short time help or should I just give up on the idea??? Thanks for any suggestions.
