One of Dave's favourite item to produce for craft fairs around Dorset and a favourite tool of Winne-the-Pooh is a honey dipper. Honey dippers a turned kitchen tool used to collect the honey from a jar or a container and then drizzle the honey onto bread, scones or biscuits. Traditionally quite large and made of hard wood, an ideal honey dipper just fits diagnonally into your honey pot, you then return the honey dipper back to the honey pot after use, you do not wash it.
Honey has strong antisceptic qualities which is why it is safe to keep the dippers in the honey, just make sure that it only touches honey and air. Pull them out of the honey, hold it at a slightly tilted angle and twirl it to catch the honey which is dripping off it. Hold it over your cup, bowl and drip it into your cup or bowl, do not wash your dipper unless absolutley necessary, when washed coat them with soft bees was or mineral oil and return to your honey pot.
