Bee keeper’s prerogative

When we extract the honey it isn’t jarred straight away. First ¬†we leave it to settle for a few days in a large stainless steel tank. This allows any air bubbles to rise to the top, making a scum on the surface which can then be skimmed off. This scum is perfectly edible, so we put it into our large honey pots that live on our kitchen worktop. It feels so luxurious having honey permanently on standby!
