We endeavor to address interesting and unusual beekeeping topics, bee behavior, beekeepers tools and equipment reviews, tips and tricks for beekeeping beginners, and look into byproducts of the beekeeping industry. Our experience comes from years of maintaining a small boutique apiary and many years of research.

Pollinators are vital to our food supply and we are passionate about teaching and educating our younger generations about food production and the food chain which homo-sapiens managed to control and largely exclude ourselves from.

  1. I saw your video on YouTube for making Cinnamon Creamed Honey and I would like to try it at home, but it would be so much easier if I could have a recipe or transcript of the directions to print out to follow. Would you be able to email this? I have some creamed honey as a starter, and I want to add cinnamon. Some recipes say to heat the honey, this one does not, which I prefer. I love cinnamon, honey, and peanut butter on toast. I’d love to have the cinnamon and honey already mixed and easy to spread. Also, does anyone ever put the creamed form in tea? Just curious. I really hope you can help me out. I have about 3 lbs of honey and a small jar of creamed honey and plenty of cinnamon ready and waiting to go!
    Thank you!

    • Hi Kristin,
      It is really easy. As per the video, simply pour your honey into a pot, heat it slightly to 50 degrees celsious which wipes its crystalisation memery if you like. So it will reset itself. Nor, slowly mix in your creamed honey (NOT heated). Then, add cinnamon to taste. We like to add a table spoon per kilogram.
      Pour into jars and allow it to set in a cool room, mixing the cinamon through the now slowly crystalizing honey. (It will float to the top). Good luck and let us know if you run into any problems. MahakoBees.
