In this episode of Pay Dirt, we’re digging deeper with Skeeter Cotton. He demonstrates the fascinating process used to turn honey in the hive into honey in the jar. You can do this, too, with very little investment.

You’ll learn how to:

  • Smoke a hive
  • Pull frames from the hive
  • Uncap a frame
  • Spin the frame
  • Filter the honey
  • Bottle the prize

“Okay, you can see here in this plastic clear bottle how clear the honey is,” Cotton said. “No wax or anything gets in it after it goes through that filter. Then we’ll put this cap on it that has a little seal, and it’s ready for a biscuit.”

Ready for a biscuit indeed.

Ready for consumption. (Realtree photo)
