  1. Do you ever have the autumn syrup crystallize on you? This will be our first time finding out although we will be adding a little lemon juice, which is supposed to prevent that.

      I haven’t had the syrup crystallise, although I haven’t kept the syrup for long because I have fed it all to the bees. The longest period I have kept it for is about a month and it hadn’t crystalised in that time.

      Have you had a different experience?

      1. No experience of our own at all yet. Just fretful after reading of Linda’s experience and having visions of the stuff hardening in the feeder. Then again some folks feed the bees with dry sugar so it seems they might cope.

  2. I am going to have a go at your recipe – and will be extra careful when closing the lid.

      Yes, be care 🙂

  3. When I read the title of your post, I thought it meant a syrup made from bees, not for them… I am a dopey dog. Your factoid page is great!

      I am not sure whether anyone has tried making syrup from bees. It would certainly catch attention on the blogosphere – watch this space!

      Thanks for the comments.
