Honey Extraction

The honeycomb frame goes into a honey extractor--this hand-cranked tool uses centrifugal force to expel honey from the comb to the sides of the device.

Honey drips down and flows out into a sieve and bowl, which gets rid of any extra wax or debris to purify the honey. 

The final step is to put the honey in bottles or eat right away!
