Food Grade Beeswax for Caneles

Recommended Posts

I finally found someone local who sold me beautiful beeswax from her hives.  

 

I have tried in vain for years to find to find an apiary with hives  that have never been sprayed with miticide or anything else.

 

I'm on cloud nine.    I bought a 1 lb.block and it's gorgeous. She filtered it twice for me as I would be using it in food.

 

May I ask what people have paid per pound on average for this kind of wax?

Beeswax is pricey, for bees as well as us.  Supposedly, beeswax takes twice the energy to make per weight that honey does.  And, as usual, finding something that is high quality and pesticide free is a premium as well.  I would say that $14/lb is a good price.  Anything cheaper, I would consider suspect, unless I knew the producer well.  Honestly, though, I consider any bee product suspect, unless I know the producer.
