Blue, I think we need the recipe for your honey hail stone-balls, so give it up! :th_thumbsupup:
LOL :laugh: OK......what I like about honey balls is they are very easy to make (no cooking, limited mess), they never fail to harden like candy can, they aren’t going to fall to the bottom of the hive like sugar could, I can toss in some more if the bees are getting low, and they might be more healthy for the bees than pure sugar (assuming you’re using your own honey, or a known good source).
Get yourself a bowl of sugar, your honey, and a spoon. Get a goob of honey on the spoon and dip it into the sugar. Mix it around until the honey is no longer a gooey mess. After getting enough sugar mixed in with the honey, it becomes kneed-able. At that point, stick your paws down in the bowl and form it into balls, bricks, snakes, or whatever form you like. I let them sit in sugar when I’m not using them.
You don’t need a lot of honey to make the balls. I figure the ratio of honey to sugar is probably about 1 part honey to 4 parts sugar.
