How many quarts do you usually get from a 10 frame illinois super?

I just extracted and used quart mason jars and got a little over 12 qts/super.  They come out to about 3.5#.  I quickly sold out - $18/qt.  I liked this way better than paying high prices for honey jars, which I have done in the past.

Doesn't matter, as long as it was all capped.  The frames were pretty much 100% capped and were 10 framers.  This first harvest was from citrus and was fairly dark and really delicious, and people were happy to pay $5/# and commented on how fantastic it is.  I guess that's what my immediate market will bear smiley
