When I melt wax in the solar melter I end up with a small amount of very thick honey on the bottom of the wax. It reminds me of taffy or some candy from my youth. Perhaps this is a common method to make a particular type of candy. Just new to me.

You will find it pretty burned tasting or I do. I rinse most of my cappings pretty thoroughly and make mead with the washings. The tar you mention I just wash away. My Kelly cappings melter produces a few gallons of darkened honey that can be sold for baking honey or it also works well in mead.

I get that sometimes when I melt comb. I just end up washing it off. If I melt cappings, I generally wash them well in a paint strainer or cheesecloth before putting them in the solar melter. That works pretty well.
