I just brought some honey comb home from one of my timber sales. I crushed up the cone, and let it run through a collander, The wife looked at it, and spotted a few pieces of dead bee mixed in with the crushed comb, and declared it unfit for consumption, as the possibility arose for salmonella poisening...since I've never done this before, I'd like some advice from you bee guys out there...Really hate to throw 2 cups of honey away....
please send a jar. i'll gobble it up too. honey does not spoil and would effectively reduce to nil any chance of little bee parts becoming contaminated with salmonella. I read someplace that honey was used as preservative and embalming fluid or something like that. whatever the case...fresh wild honey is YUMMY.

Send it to me I will let you know if it is fit. Don't throw it away, just strain it through some cheese cloth. Tel your wife honey has antiseptic qualities so those bee parts wonnt hurt you. Un parturized honey, uumm.
When you are up to your butt in alligators, it is hard to remember your intent was to drain the swamp. Stay focused!
I saw a piece on honey on TV last evening form the Farm Show. Very informative and just plane cool. I, unfortunately, am allergic to honey. if I have a spoonfull of honey I will be spending the next 24 hours in the "porcelin reading room"....
the bee parts will not hurt anything. After we spin our honey, it has bee parts and pieces of the wax from the caps. We use fine cheesecloth to strain it. We hang the honey/wax/bee part filled cheesecloth from a ladder and let it drain into a container below
