My beehive is probably dead. We hear no gentle humming when we put an ear up to the hive and the bodies of dead bees outside the door is piling up to alarming proportions. I think I made a heap of novice beekeeping mistakes and those rookie errors killed my hive but I won’t know until Spring.
Happy New Year! I can’t believe 2017 is already here!
The long nights are here (as well as the cold and snow!) and my husband and I have been brewing a lot and I mean a lot over this last year. We hosted a large Yule party this year with lots of food and drink to fuel partygoers with something delicious, seasonal and warming.
We also wanted to make something traditional which many of our friends had never had before (let along drink out of a giant drinking horn!) so we made mead and I want to share the recipe with you.
