The new season is on it's way, the chestnuts have begun to flower . We will have to rob our bee hives very soon to make sure that the next lot of honey after this current batch will be all chestnut honey. This current batch will be mostly Jarrah with a little red gum - my favourite . However I am eager to find out what chestnut flower honey tastes like.
I have just made a batch of chestnut ice-cream sweetened with honey as my first chestnut ice-cream experiment. It's still chilling in the freezer at the moment , but the lick of the spoon tasted pretty good after I'd poured it in its container to freeze.
