If you follow my facebook page you will already know that we have collected our first honey from our hive yesterday! At the moment we are squeezing the honey from the combs by hand, and it’s all rather exciting!
We are slowly filling a bucket with golden, home grown honey, and another container with the left over interesting waxy stuff.
Can you tell we don’t know what we are doing? Luckily my brother-in-law does know what he’s doing and is looking after the bees for us.
What can I make from all this glorious honey?
What is your favourite way to use honey?
Your favourite recipe?
Any special tricks when replacing regular sugar with honey in a recipe?
And what about the wax?
Some of it will be saved and made into more ‘foundations’ (think that is the correct term) for the bees, but I want to keep some as I have a hankering to make something with it… but what?
I’d love some ideas and advice about how best to use this glorious home grown honey!
