Simple and delicious! Autumn is my favorite time of the year in Japan.
With an extremely dry summer the honey production on Awaji island has apparently not been a good one. This hive was not harvest and the bee-keeper decided to leave it until next year. He said the hive may not survive the winter.
I so much want to have my own bees…. next year maybe ?
Honey from the same hive but harvested in different seasons.
“Bush honey”,”Wildflower honey” or “Multifloral Honey” honey is known as Hyakkamistsu 百花蜜 ひゃっかみつ in Japanese. This literary translates as “honey from 100 flowers”.
The jar on the right is the honey harvested a spring, the other is honey from the autumn harvest.
I can’t wait to get my own hives someday.
