Advanced Bee Yard 8/14/18

August 14 @ 6:30 pm - 8:30 pm

Advanced Bee Yard is scheduled for Tuesday, August 14, 2018 at 6:30 PM at the Franklin Park Conservatory’s Apiary (near the brick house on the southeast side of the Conservatory). We do not have a pot luck, so eat before or after the meeting. We will be there, rain or shine! Call Jim Tippie  (614-935-8452), or Will Merrill (614-226-8219) if you need directions.

Last meeting, Jim provided his Winter Sugar Candy recipe. Here it is:

To make a 5# batch:

Heat 2 quarts of water to 210° F.

Turn off the heat.

Add 5# of sugar plus 1 tsp vinegar. Stir until dissolved.

Reheat to 260 – 270° F.

Place a piece of waxed paper on a cookie tray or deeper tray, and pour the mixture onto the tray. Let it cool for 24 to 48 hours for it to solidify. When cooled, you can break it up and place the pieces in your hive.

Any complaints or criticisms, take them directly to Jim Tippie!
