Following the honey harvest in January, with the days getting brighter and just that tiny bit longer, the excitement of spring almost upon us, we decided it would be a great time to hold our Pop Up Shop at Wolff Olins.
We had honey to sell from both the Wolff Olins roof garden and the Skip Garden, as well as some Honey Club tote bags, seed packs and the art cards from the Beetopia event we had at The Guardian in the summer.
The honey was so popular it sold out in around 5 minutes! Some people were buying gifts for family and friends, what a lovely idea for Mother’s Day; buy a tote bag, a jar of honey and a seed pack then top it up with a bottle of prosecco!! Mmmm honey and prosecco…
Honey Lavender Prosecco Recipe
For the Honey Lavender Syrup:
1 cup Honey Club Honey
½ cup water
4 lavender flowers
Bring honey, water and lavender to a boil in a small saucepan.
Let simmer for 10 minutes.
Remove from heat and let steep for 30 minutes.
Strain lavender out and transfer syrup to a glass bottle with a lid.
Add 1 tablespoon of lavender honey to a champagne flute.
Fill the glass with prosecco.
