The Kid Should See This

Harvesting honey

From Portland, Oregon’s Kinfolk Magazine: a video from the story Honey Harvest:

My first taste of honey from the bees was surreal. It is an interesting experience to taste your surroundings. With each season and each harvest, our honey has had a different color and taste; we save one bottle from each harvest and call it our special reserve. The earlier in the year we harvest, the lighter the color and the more floral the taste. The closer to autumn that we harvest, the thicker and more amber in color the honey is. Last fall we had a blooming ivy bush that the bees loved—you could hear the bush buzzing when walking past. The honey from that harvest tasted woodsy and deep, just like you would imagine honey flavored from ivy to taste.
