Copper Bee Apiary

A garden apiary in Whittlesford, Cambridge, UK - honey bees and their beekeeper Hilary van der Hoff.

Tincture of Propolis

Following my earlier experiments, there it is, bottled.

It developed a bitterness, and tastes appropriately medicinal.

I had thought that the jug I used to make it would follow the one-way path that various other items have taken from kitchen to beekeeping kit, but it cleaned up well.

P.S. The keen-eyed will have noticed a beehive in each photograph of the tincture.
