How to Eat Honeycomb?

easily be removed from the comb. The procedure is fun, slightly sticky, and very tasty.

Crush the honey comb gently with the back of a large spoon. Press the wax in the comb down repeatedly so that it wads up in the
bottom of the bowl. As the wax is pressed, each cell in the comb will break open, releasing the honey into the bowl.
Lift the wax from the bowl with a fork once all of the honey is extracted. Place a strainer over the bowl and put the wax in it
to allow it to drain.
Remove the strainer and discard the wax, or rinse it off and store it for future projects such as candle making. Use the fork to
remove any remaining bits of wax from the honey. Use the honey immediately or store it in a jar for later.
