Taking Honey











Hot knife cuts cap
off cells filled with
liquid gold. Spin it, 
force it to ooze out
the spigot. Strain it into a 
cheesecloth covered
bucket. Leave enough
for bee's hard won
winter food.
Bottle some for me to 
sweeten and warm up
winter's bitter chill.

(as part of our emergency food stash, i bought some dehydrated honey, mainly out of curiosity. yep, nothing beats the real stuff.)
