New Product Line?

Nuts 'n Honey

It's been a while since I last posted, but to be honest not much has happened as the hives are mostly closed up for the winter.  One of the hives at the Botanical Gardens was a bit light so I put some sugar mush on it. Both hives there still have open screened bottom boards on them; I really must try to get down there to check on the mush and to slide in the removable boards!

So to while away the time I have been playing with some product development...  I've made some more massage bars and tried some new fragrances.  I now have Unscented, Coconut, Orange Dreamsicle, Black Amber & Lavender, Oatmeal Milk & Honey, Spiced Mahogany and I have more Ylang Ylang on it's way to me.  I think that should cover me for the festive period! 

I'm going to a mead making workshop tomorrow; It will be good to know where I went wrong last time! With luck I'll come away fully prepared for some serious brewing!

And to cap it off I thought I would see how putting a load of nuts in a jar with just enough honey to kind of bind them together would work.  I have to say they look great!  It's not very cheap to prepare but I reckon the look is good and the flavour of nuts and my honey should be brilliant!  I'll see what results the consumer test reports yield!
