Q: What are cappings? What do they taste like?

A: The crunchy bits of pollen, propolis, and capping wax that crown each jar of our honey are called “cappings”. Cappings have the highest concentrations of pollen and propolis, which are known for their healthful properties. They are sometimes referred to as “Farmer’s Chewing Gum.” Because they do contain bits of wax, many people like to chew them and discard the wax afterwards.
