i got a 5 gallon storage bucket for honey. it has a honey gate and a close fitting lid. i put the honey from a cut out in it. my husband decided that there were folks who needed honey bears. i, the dutiful wife, went to fill the bears. have i mentioned that it is COLD HERE?
the honey began to glop out on my hand and the floor, very little making it into the bear. the lid on the bucket sucked down. even though i have a lid opener, i can not loosen the lid. it occurred to me that the buckets need and air vent. something like the ones on the plastic gas containers. small and as flush to the bucket as possible.
has any one fixed a bucket like this? do i just need to bring the honey bucket into the house and warm it in front of the pellet stove every time i want to use it?
