A Taste of Claw Hammer Honey

I got an early taste of Claw Hammer Honey from my backyard this morning. All the details are posted at Mud Songs.

I scraped the honeycomb out of the hive and two minutes later popped it in my mouth like a stick of Juicy Fruit — and it was delicious.

Unfortunately, it’s likely to be the only taste of honey this year. Both hives are establishing themselves this year and will need all the honey to survive the winter. Next year, though, if they survive the winter, there should be plenty of honey to go around.
