    Default creamed honey

    I just wanted to say that after searching around I came across a referrence to a "Dyce's method" recipe for making this product on a forum here. I found the complete instructions and made some that night. It is wonderful! The instructions sound a little complicated at first but, do it once and after that it's not so intimidating. I encourage interested parties to give it a try. What a great product and a fantastic way to make use of some of the crystalized honey one can agonize over. Containers were not hard to come by at our local GFS, a restaurant supply store that is open to the public without added fees. I loved making this product and will do it again! Thanks to Beesource Forums for providing such a useful service to our industry!

    Sounds great, beesweetie. Which recipe did you have success with? I have tried numerous ones but have still come up short.

    Mr Todd, I'd suggest rereading the first post for the recipe. Dyce's method is the recipe.

    Thanks for the link. I was hoping for a lazy-man method. I will just bite the bullet

    I started by buying a pound of creamed honey for starter. Since that time I just keep a pound each year to add to 10 pounds of liquid honey to start 11 pounds of creamed honey to then mix with 110 pounds of liquid honey to make 120 +/- pounds of creamed honey.
