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. For this gingerbread spiced infusion, the Edinburgh Honey Co used their own Rapeseed honey from Longniddry near Edinburgh.
This honey is known to help with hay fever in the spring as it is rich in pollen. The best thing to do is start your hay 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.
