The Honey Bee Centre in Cloverdale BC is a great place to reconnect with nature, and the good old honey bee. While you’re there, you will learn about bee keeping as well as the process involved in making quality honey. The Fireweed Honey, which is also known as the “champagne of honeys”, has an amazing buttery sweetness makes a nice compliment to your morning scone or cup of tea. If you’re feeling a bit adventurous, try the Tasmanian Leatherwood Honey, which is a full flavored honey with bold, spicy notes. The uses for these amazing honeys are endless, and you can really have a lot of fun with the different flavors. I use the Fraser Valley Wildflower Honey in milk chocolate truffles, and the result is a velvety smooth ganache with delightful character.
