A really simple question: How do you melt bees wax? I have tried a crock pot-wife threatened my life if I used hers-so I bought one at a thrift shop. First I tried just dumping in the cappings and burr comb and started it out on low. That ended up a cantaloupe size ball of sticky goo that really smelled great. The pet raccoon had treats for two months off that.
Next I reasoned that wax would float and the remaining honey and detrius would sink if I put water in the crock pot and then heated.Same results except wetter. I stored last years-its still in the freezer and we are about two weeks away from our fall extraction after the golden rain trees bloom.
