Green Honey Harvesting with Alex Zomchek

Green Honey Harvesting webinar with Alex Zomchek. October 9, 2013. 58 minutes.

“Green” Honey Harvesting is intended as a whimsical yet purposeful play on unique honeys, honey harvesting and processing techniques.  There are literally green colored honeys from various flora.  Unripened honey is sometimes referred to as “green”.  Alex discusses how to properly assess if your honey is ripe enough for extraction using the shake method and the more sophisticated refractometer.  He also shares “green” energy tips and tricks to process honey, wax, and pollen including building a solar wax melter and how you can use your car to decrystallize honey and remove the bloom from wax candles.
