T BABCOCK HONEY
MAKING THE HONEY
How it's done:
Forager bees collect pollen and the sugary nectar from seasonal flowers.
Using protective clothing, beekeepers collect the honey frames.
The honey is filtered to remove bits of wax and other impurities, then bottled.
The bees return to their hive to deposit the nectar into honeycomb wax cells.
The waxy caps are removed from the honeycomb cells using a heated knife.
The raw honey is bottled to be sold.
Hive bees dry the nectar by flapping their wings, then cap the cells with wax to keep the honey clean.
The honey is removed from the uncapped cells through centrifugal force, using a device called an extractor.
Honey is used as a natural sweetener in drinks and a healthier alternative in baking and cooking.
