THE HONEY PROCESS

 

The bees collect nectar from many different flowers. At the beehive, the nectar is transformed into honey by
means of enzymes from the bee's honey stomach.


As a general rule, the honey is ready to be harvested when the bees have sealed 2/3 of the frames with a small layer of wax. When the small layer of wax on the sealed cells has been removed, the honey is ready to be extracted in the centrifuge.


The honey is sieved to remove small bits of wax. The newly-centrifuged honey is completely liquid, but it will gradually grow thicker over a couple of weeks. During this period, the honey must be stirred. The duration of the stirring process depends on the temperature and type of honey. The stirring prevents the formation of large crystals and ensures that the honey does not get too hard.
The crystals in the honey contribute to the taste so it is essential to pick the right time for the bottling.
