With all the support staff each helping to make my product award winning, what exactly is my product and how does one use it?
Product Availability Update:
Product is available but in limited quantity. I will be processing more soon as the temperatures rise enough to process. – 27 June 2022
The final fancy holiday edition product is now complete! The labels are on and the ribbon sealed with my very own beeswax ! Available by special order only.
I do not use plastic! And it being honey what better glass jar to put it in than one shaped like a hexagonal cell in a beehive!
For the special edition jars I use my own wax that I render from my own bees. This is added to the top of the black lid to make a fun and professional presentation.
Does my bee look a little different? Because it is. The bee on my label is inspired by the ancient coin once used in Greece. Forged into a wax stamp, it is added to special edition orders.
Crystalized honey is a good thing! That means you have pure raw honey. The crystallization has many reasons but is a completely natural process and is easy to undo. Simply put the honey with a loosely fit lid (but be careful not to get water inside else you will be fermenting it and that’s a whole other subject) into a pot of warm water or even a slow cooker on its lowest setting. You do not want to pasteurize (boil) the honey so keep the temp of the water around 110, the same temp for making yogurt so it’s a good rule of thumb. Leave that there for a few hours and the honey should come back to life. I’ll even leave it outside all day on a hot summer’s day, works just as well. Sugar water does not crystalize like honey does and neither does “dead” honey, pasteurized honey that killed all the good stuff inside.
Ancient Greek Coin
Before there was agriculture humans gathered honey from bees. Bees were such an important part of life that every mediterranean culture, where bees are known to have originated, valued them. They were so important that in egypt the hieroglyph for bee (a profile view) was synonymous with the symbol for the ruler of lower Egypt. This coin dating back to approximately 350BCE shows how important bees were to the Greek culture by being part of their coinage.
With such high importance came the many legends. This enduring story shows that bees not only produced valuable products and services but were seen as inspirations.
