A flight of Manitoba Honey on CBC's Weekend Morning Show!

Yesterday, on CBC's Weekend Morning Show with host Nadia Kidwai, I presented the some of the wonderful honey that we have in Manitoba.  The bees and the honey producers work very hard to provide us with this wonderful product.  There is a great range of flavours, due to the different flowers that the bees access. 
 Featured above, at the CBC Studio are:  Ferris Farm Creamed Honey (Downtown Hydro Market, Wolesley Farmer's Market), BeeProject Apiary North End and St. Boniface Neighbourhood Honeys (BeeSpace @ 196 Osborne), Giguere Honey Farms Creamy Cinnamon, Wildflower, Dandelion, Natural, Creamed, and Buckwheat Honeys (St. Norbert's Farmer's Market, Argy's Records).  Not shown, Phil's Honey.

 Some things about Bees and Honey:

  • Bees are a great environmental health indicator species.  
  • Honey is the only natural foods that does not go bad.
  • It is a pure product.
  • It will granulate eventually, just enjoy it more!
  • Canada #1 is not neccessarily Canadian.  It is a grade.  Buy Local!
  • Honey has a big taste.  Spread it thinly than other spreads to enjoy without too many calories.  
  • BUY LOCAL!  Manitoba honey is spectacular! Local beekeepers need support.  There were big losses in Manitoba last winter.
  • Enjoy!
