Ken Pickles , the Wharfedale Beekeeper has written a wide ranging text reviewing his beekeeping philosophy and the underlying reasons for their success. Certainly a must for any Yorkshireman. It recalls Summer evening sitting by his hives, the lure of the craft and all that it is associated with.
Bella, The Queen Bee, rules her hive without mercy. The female bees work ceaselessly. The male drones such as Tom and Harold are rude and lazy. Old bees are pushed out of the hive and left to die. The guard bees perish, fighting earwigs and other more deadly enemies which attack the hive in pursuit of honey. But the most dangerous enemy is the weather for without an adequate stock of honey for the winter the bees will die. And there is the final terrifying battle which Bella must fight with a new rival, the young enchanting Queen Vanessa, a battle which almost destroys them all.
This is a cookbook to celebrate the versatility of that wonderful sweetener, honey, which has been used in cooking since ancient times. Included in this cookbook are more that 180 delicious honey recipes from starters, supper dishes, salad dressings and sauces to puddings, breads, cakes, biscuits, and drinks. Puddings include mouth-watering ice-creams, among them watermelon and raspberry cream ice, redcurrant and honey ice-cream and passionfruit ice-cream; and many more irresistible desserts which range from poached peaches with mascarpone and blackcurrant kissel to toffee crunch honey pudding, atholl brose and honey crème caramel. The recipes in this book are healthy, using honey to sweeten rather that sugar, and the ingredients are wholesome and nutritious.
