I'm a beekeeper as well and I re-iterate my colleagues' mention of not heating honey over 140 degrees to prevent the destruction of beneficial enzymes and such. I have found a great way to deal with crystalized honey. Closed cars can become quite hot from the Sun. At 70 degrees on a sunny day, after a half hour, the temperature inside a car is 104 degrees. After an hour, it can reach 113 degrees. I have found this a great way to gently liquify crystalized honey. You do have to monitor the inside temperature, as you can go above 140 at higher outside air temperatures and in direct sunlight.
Great instructable! Very well done. I learned to carve meats and poultry in the Boy Scouts Cooking Merit Badge. Brought back some nice memories!
Hi Jennifer: Great Instructible! I am a beekeeper in Northern California and one of the greatest resources I have found is our local beekeeper guilds or clubs. I belong to both the Santa Clara Valley Beekeepers Guild [ http://www.beeguild.org/ ] and in El Dorado County, the El Dorado Backyard Beekeepers [ http://eldoradobeekeepers.com/ ] and I have found a wealth of information and knowledge from there members. Both these groups and I am sure others offer new beekeeper classes and mentoring programs. Its a great way to jumpstart becoming a beekeeper!
I love your project! As a science teacher, this would be a great thing to build for my classroom. I do make a point to my student that an orrery only relates the relative positions, but not the distances between the planets. Paul Doherty of San Francisco's Exploritorium has a great "snacks on the relative sizes & distances between the planets of our solar system: http://www.exploratorium.edu/ronh/solar_system/
