Mine has been going for 4euros for a kilo plastic pot. With the present almost parity of the ?/euro methinks I'm giving it away:(

Mine all went before Christmas at £3.95 per 1lb jar - the same price for the last few years. It's typically the same old faces buying it and it goes like wildfire when they know I've extracted and bottled it. One person bought 10 jars for Christmas presents and I even had a couple of people arguing over who was going to buy the last jar :boxing_smiley:

Oh, and in reply to the OP, I'm just 7 miles from Birmingham City centre (South Walsall to be precise).
