Raw Honey Comb, unfiltered, unheated, San Jose, all natural
Honey Comb with honey, unfiltered, unheated, San Jose area, all natural, harvested near Cottle Park (a 200-acre organic farm) in South San Jose by Datura Don from his honey bee hive. Limited quantity and availability. Weight varies, total minimum net weight is one pound of honey and natural beeswax straight out of the hive.
Normally, you cut a bite-sized piece off the honey comb block and put the whole thing in your mouth. You chew it like gum, thereby releasing all the honey until you have just beeswax left in your mouth. This can be saved and melted and made into candles. (to avoid a fire hazards, use a double boiler and electric over gas stoves when making candles.)
Beeswax is actually more expensive per pound than honey, but not as tasty.
Honey is anti-bacterial and will not mold or ever go bad or spoil. What it will do in cool weather is turn cloudy and become more solid than liquid, like true coconut oil. However, it can still be eaten with the comb cut up into pieces, or warmed and melted and separated.
Simply cut a bite sized piece from the block and chew like natural gum. Once the honey is chewed out, remove the wax from your mouth and save or toss. Or, you can strain the honey from the comb and melt the remaining beeswax for candles or lip balms.
Caution: Do not heat the beeswax so much that it melts while still with the honey. It makes a mess of waxy honey, or sweet waxy goop. Remove the honey first. Beeswax will float on top of honey, when allowed. Warm gently in a double boiler if need be, or soak the whole container in warm water.
