The Honey Shot
I was back at YSP this week after some time away and Ivor came to deliver the honey that our hives have produced. I've been so excited waiting for the honey. He said that the bees have produced about 25 jars and for two new colonies that's not too bad. The mixed summer weather didn't help too much either.
It smells and tastes of all the flowers of the park: rosebay, lavender, lime and bramble all mixed together. It is a pale, slightly cloudy golden colour.
I couldn't wait to get home and try it - dipping crusty bread in and getting sticky fingers. Yummy, yum.
I've drizzled it onto almost every meal since (feel a bit sick now).
