LSE Bees achieved the most exciting milestone this year – we finally bottled our honey!
We got 69 jars from the remaining hive on Passfield Hall (once again, we’re leaving the honey in the Connaught House hives to last them over the winter) and it tastes absolutely delicious… It’ll be for sale for £6 a jar, so if you’re interested in getting some, leave a comment below this post or send us an email to lsebees [at] gmail.com.
But how did we do it? Well the lovely people at the Bee Collective were in charge, getting the honey out of the frames using a centrifuge before we came along for the fun part – bottling!
Our honey was in a big bucket, and Dan and I had to slowly, slowly open the tap and fill the jars. It was really interesting how it was so much lighter once it was in the jars as compared to the bucket, and it has the most delicious smell and taste. Check out the photos and the video!
