I have been looking at this topic for a while now.
I have been researching Honey Bags and Honey Beds for a few years and I have come up with a couple of ideas.
For the purposes of this article I am only going to be talking about how to make one.
The first idea is to use the old standby of a cake pan.
A cake pan is a rectangular glass container with holes at one end and a lid.
Its used for baking, heating food, and holding hot sauces, but is also very handy for storage and transporting.
I have also heard of people using a honey bowl or honey bucket to store honey, but I have never seen one for this.
To make this a honey basket you will need a glass pan with holes in the side.
You will also need a honey spoon, a jar with a lid, a glass baking tray, and a honey bottle.
If you dont have one of these, you can use any other container you want.
Place a glass cake pan over a heatproof surface.
It is best to make the honey bucket first so you dont end up with any spillage.
Take the lid off the jar and place the honey spoon over the pan.
