Too bad "he didn't want to deal with it" since we have a serious shortage of bees and they are vital to our farming industry. He could have called a beekeeper and had someone else do it for him.

No need to really 'can' per se, Becki. Strain impurities, pour into whatever you plan on holding the product in and cover and put away. Honey does NOT go bad.

I would, however, suggest you start with sterilized containers.

Ciao,

Thanks for the info. As i have over 5 gallon to "putup" this will make it easier for a very "sticky" Job. Becki51

I wonder who volunteered to try it?
