I also made my first try at honey candy. Candy making has been a challenge for me in the past, so it was exciting that it turned out. Isn't the color beautiful? The only ingredients were honey and butter. They remind me of Werther's, but they have a beautiful, strong, wildflower taste. The fragrant recipe will be lovely to make in the fall and they should be soothing for winter's dry throats.
The photo below is what we're looking at as of late. The right-most hive is gone and we made the frames available for the bees to eat the last drops of honey off of so we can store them for the bees next year. The left-most hive has yet to be harvested and inspected for winter decisions.
