Pouring the honey in the double-boiler

Here at the Industrious family's hive we have harvested the honey! First we cut the brood wax off the cone. Then we placed the honey-filled wax in cheesecloth. We placed the cheesecloth in a double-boiler, smashed the comb-cells and let gravity do the rest! Because Nacho (the dog) likes sticky stuff we placed the double-boiler in the oven over-night.

We all enjoyed tasting the honey and getting everything sticky!
