This is what happens when you feed your bees Gingerbread cookies. We have created this unique Christmas treat in collaboration with Spice Kitchen and it is mind-blowingly good. You can use it in Hot Toddy, evening tea, or your baking.
We have dedicated, for this infusion, our own Rapeseed honey from Longniddry near Edinburgh.
The results are heart-warming.
Made with Scottish Rapeseed Honey
Rapeseed honey is considered to be an ugly duckling of the honey world. It is one of the first major food sources for bees and a very important aspect of a good start of the beekeeping season. The girls tend to multiply very quickly due to the high pollen content on the OSR flowers.
This honey is known to help with hey fever in the spring as it is rich in pollen. The best thing to do is start your hey fever curation a few months in advance to allow your immune system to get used to pollen.
Gingerbread honey – what to do with it?
Pancakes. Seriously there is no better use for this honey. On a gloomy Sunday morning when getting out of bed seems like an impossible challenge, sourdough pancakes are the bomb! Fluffy sweet yet slightly sour. Oh, my days I made myself hungry writing this.
Another very tasty treat with gingerbread infused honey is Hot Toddy but don’t over do it ??
