Want to give comb honey a try? This pure honey comes to you exactly as the bees made it – still wrapped in the soft white wax the bees make to store their honey. To eat comb honey, just dig in with a spoon and devour. Most people love the taste of the beeswax with the honey (it is good for you), others will simply chew it like gum.
Honey comb is made entirely by honey bees. Honey comes from the nectar of flowers which ooze out of the blossoms. If honey bees did not gather this nectar, it would be lost forever. The bees pollinate their flower friends and in return, the bees are given the nectar. Bees carry the nectar back to their hives in special honey-tummy tanks. In the hive, nectar becomes honey. The bees also produce wax, which is shaped into the beautiful hexagonal comb to hold the excess honey. As part of our responsible beekeeping practices we take only the excess comb honey - bees in Canada make about 300 pounds of honey every year but they only eat 100 pounds - so the beekeeper gets to harvest the surplus.
