At Amen Bee, in the honey-making process, Lynne extracts only capped honey from the hives after the bees have entirely removed the moisture with their wings. Instead of heating her honey to 180 degrees in the extraction and filtering process used by grade-A honey producers, Lynne uses centrifugal force to spin out the honey without the use of heat. “The minute you use heat, you kill the enzymes in honey, some of which are found in no other food. These enzymes are beneficial for immune system maintenance.” With minimal filtering, her grade B honey is drained into barrels and glass jars for sale in bulk or small quantities. “The darker the honey, the stronger the flavor and higher the mineral content,” says Lynne.
