Harvesting a single frame
The guru told me to take this single frame of honey out of the hive and I have it sitting on the counter at home. Both sides are full of honey, about 70% capped.
What is the simplest way to get the honey out at home without any equipment. I have no lofty plans for the honey except to keep it around the house and marvel at it for a while. I would like to preserve the frame of comb if possible - apparently it has use for a new hive?
I was thinking of slicing the cap off with a serrated kitchen bread that has been repeatedly heated? Then setting the frame flat in a large pan and letting gravity do the work? Maybe putting it somewhere warm like a window sill or near a warm stovetop?
That flowhive thing is starting to look appealing.
Please have a look at my bio; I put in my location and equipment, colony description.
