Try it Out Tuesday - Rendering honeycomb wax into the golden yellow stuff

Who knew this was a thing?

My friend Gary here at work is a beekeeper, rolling into his second season at managing his hives and creating honey. I mentioned to him that I'm keen to make my own beeswax cloth food wraps, he suggested instead of buying solid beeswax online why not take his? Sure, that'd be great! Full knowledge of where it came from and continuing the cycle of work that starts with the bees.

He turns up with this massive container.....ummmm, it's NOT Yellow?!

Good one city kid, yea it doesn't come like that, you gotta work it. Roll up ya sleeves and learn about rendering and cleaning honeycomb wax....take it away Try it Out Kitchen at Stelle's house
