Walnut, Goat Cheese, and Savannah Honey Crostini

  Entertaining guests at the last minute can be a total nightmare. There are just so many factors to consider: Will everyone get along? Will there be enough wine? What will I serve? Occasions like these merit an arsenal of simple, quick recipes that can be whipped up at a moment’s notice. Cue the Walnut,…

Natural Beeswax Lip Balm: Southern Collection

Hey, y’all! We at Savannah Bee are proud to present the Southern Collection of Natural Beeswax Lip Balms. Our three new beeswax lip balm scents inspire daydreams of summer and capture the endearing charm of the South. Choosing a new favorite from the Southern Lip Balm Collection proved to be more difficult than I had…

Palmetto Honey

I mentioned in an earlier honey post that Leatherwood honey is probably my favorite honey. This is true…mostly. You see, every May the Sabal palmettos flower and by the end of June we harvest, in my opinion, the very best honey in the United States. Sabal palmetto (also know as cabbage palm or Carolina palmetto)…

Tupelo Honey and Sriracha Compound Butter

Sriracha has been having a moment lately, earning itself a spot in recipes alongside old mainstays like bacon, chocolate, and the like. On the other hand, Savannah Bee Company’s best-selling Tupelo honey has been a consistent favorite in many dishes for years. I decided to marry the two sensational ingredients into something equally as versatile…

An Update From the Savannah Bee Apiary and Bee Garden

Summer in Savannah is hot. Like seriously hot. The temperature today was 98 degrees today and the heat index was 114 degrees. Our bee garden has a 6-foot tall fence around it that blocks all the wind coming in from the nearby marsh. The air doesn’t flow very well and once you are out there…

Keeping Our Fingers Crossed for Sourwood Honey

Sourwood honey is a wonderful single-varietal honey, typically produced in the southern Appalachian region of the United States. The Sourwood tree blooms in August, so the Sourwood honey harvest comes at the very end of the summer. In fact, Sourwood honey is the second to last honey we bottle each year, the last being our…

Orange Blossom Honey Granola

Granola is such a versatile snack, and so easy to make. So why do we insist on buying it at the grocery store? These thoughts occurred to me this week and I decided that rather than paying for small batch boxes of granola, I’d try making it myself. The result was way easier and faster…

Carrot-Apple Slaw with Acacia Honey Vinaigrette

In the South, summer and coleslaw seem to be synonymous. And while the cookout staple does make for a tasty side dish, it has always seemed a bit lackluster to me. This summer I decided something a little more enticing was in order. That’s when it hit me – not only could I substitute bland…

  Savannah Bee has a mead bar at our flagship store on Broughton Street in downtown Savannah. Mead enthusiasts and the curious may sample mead on site and purchase bottles of mead to enjoy at home. There are several meads to sample, from still to sparkling, semi-sweet to sweet. When we opened the mead bar…

In addition, we are all very…

Queen’s Libation Cocktail

This time of year in the South requires one thing of all who venture outdoors: an icy cold beverage. With that in mind, I set out to concoct a seasonal cocktail befitting all warm weather activities. I present to you the Queen’s Libation. I pureed raspberries, blueberries, and strawberries together and made a simple syrup…

The Savannah Bee Mead Bar

A couple of years ago Savannah Bee sought a new kind of alcohol permit, one that had never been issued in the city of Savannah. Eventually, Savannah Bee obtained the new permit and the city’s first mead tasting bar was opened. From opening day the Mead Bar at Savannah Bee was a huge success. In…
