Intro: Honey Bee Syrup
Wanting to do everything I can to help out my Honey Bees I started to make my own syrup for both my hives.
Step 1: Slow Cooking Goodness
So I turn on my slow cooker to low. I use an old coffee pot to measure things out with. I put 16 cups of sugar and 8 cups off water into the slow cooker. Start to mix everything slow until all the sugar can't be seen. I then went out side and saw what the honey bees and bumble bees where really interested in for pollen. I got some dandy lions, buttercups, blackberry flowers, and a few other ones. I put those in the slow cooker and mixed all that into the sugar water. Took my time with this to not burn any of it. 40 minutes later it was ready and done. Next time though I plan to add a bit of honey.
Step 2: Done Good
This is the end product and they love it.
