Raw Honey Comb, unfiltered, unheated, San Jose, all natural
Honey Comb with honey, unfiltered, unheated, San Jose area, all natural, harvested near Cottle Park (200-acre organic farm) in South San Jose by Datura Don from his honey bee hive. Limited quantity, seasonal availability. Weight varies, total minimum net weight is one pound of honey and natural beeswax straight out of the hive. Firstharvest.
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.
