TIP OF THE DAY: Get Every Last Drop Of Honey From The Jar

It’s National Honey Month in a recession. Today’s tip spans both topics: how to get the last drops of honey from the jar.

As the honey is used up and the jar contains mostly air, there is invariably honey at the bottom of the jar that hardens, resisting the ability to pour or spoon it out. Here’s how to get out that last spoonful:

  • Brew a cup of tea.
  • Pour some of the tea into the honey container.
  • Cap and shake the container. The honey will dissolve into the tea.
  • Pour the contents into your tea cup and enjoy.
    This trick not only gets the last drop of honey out, but it also cleans the container for recycling.


    Honeybees must visit two million flowers to make one pound of honey! More honey trivia.
