This year’s Honey Tasting and Sale was a huge success! Dozens of members of the LSESU Beekeeping Society and of the LSE Estates Division Sustainability team attended the two sessions on 21 and 22 October. There was a veritable smorgasbord of honey for us to sample, including not just a jar of freshly-harvested LSE Honey 2015, but also the last remaining jar of last year’s LSE Honey, plus three other kinds of supermarket honey (organic acacia, tropical forest, and orange flower blossom).
We were all amazed by how different the honeys tasted, but the unanimous (and of course completely unbiased) opinion was that the LSE Honey 2015 was the best.
Not content with consuming umpteen honey-coated grissini at the tasting sessions, many of us also bought jars of honey for ourselves or as gifts. By the way, for those of you did buy a jar, we’d love to know what you end up doing with it. Will you give it to someone as a Christmas present, spread it on toast, or scoff it straight from the jar on a rainy evening whilst watching Netflix? Either way, please do share your stories and photos on Facebook/Twitter/Instagram with the hashtag #MyLSEHoney.
There are only a few jars left from this harvest, so please email us asap if you want one. The remaining jars will be on offer at our upcoming honey-themed Bake Sale.
