This liquid, bright and clear honey, which is mild, very sweet and nearly neutral in taste. This honey will be collected from may to june.
Due its high fructose content, it remains liquid for a long time.
This honey is perfect for sweetening teas, desserts, in cereals and of course for baking.
(recipe for 4 persons)
70ml dry whitewine
2 kinds of salad (as you like: lettuce, iceberg lettuce, Lollo Rosso, Lollo Bianco, ...)
1 bunch of rocket salad
1 yellow pepper
1 bunch of chives
2 bunch of dill
1 tbs Wernet blossom honey
0,5 tbsp mustard
500g fresh salmon
juice of a half lemon
Wash salads and cut the leaves. Wash vegetables, too and dice.
Finely chop a bunch of dill, cut chives into thin rolls and stir to a dressing with yoghurt, flower honey and mustard, season to taste with salt and pepper.
Cut the salmon into even stripes, marinate with the remaining dill and the juice of half a lemon, turn lightly into flour and sauté in hot oil. Make sure, however, that the core of the salmon is still slightly glassy - then it tastes best!
Season with pepper and salt shortly before serving.
For 1 kg of honey, the bees need to collect about 3 kg of nectar or honeydew, which conforms about 60,000 honey-stomach fillings.
In order to fill this honey stomach once approx. 15 to 100 blooms (depending upon flower type) must be flown.
The bee can carry 50mg of nectar on each of her thrilling flights - by the way, this weight is one-third of her total body weight!
For example, bees need to visit around 900,000 to 1 million flowers for 1 kg of sweet honey.
During the lifetime of a bee, it produces an average of 2.5 to 3 grams of honey - but this requires it to collect three times the amount of nectar.
Especially considerable is the route of the bee:
For 1 kg of honey, the swarm of bees covers a distance of 40,000 to 120,000 km, depending on the flowering time. This corresponds to the single - triple earth circumference of the earth!
