Grill Honey and Porter Glazed Chicken Kebabs

Last week we celebrated the grand opening of our mead bar on River Street! I had the amazing opportunity to cater the event with honey-based recipes, both old and new. The biggest hit without question was the Grill Honey and Porter Glazed Chicken Kebabs. I probably refilled the platter six times over the course of…

What Is a Bee Smoker?

When people first find out that I’m a beekeeper, I often receive the same question. “How do you keep from getting stung all the time?” This curiosity is valid, as you would expect opening a hive of 60,000 + bees to be tremendously dangerous. Couple that with the fact that 1 out of every 3…

The Many Faces of Wildflower Honey

Wildflower honey is something that I believe everyone has probably seen, but most do not really understand. I am sure that they get the general concept but not the whole incredible wildflower honey picture. Everyone knows that it is honey, produced from the nectar, that the bees have gathered from multiple flower sources or varieties….

Winter White Honey and Christmas in July

Years ago, Savannah Bee introduced our now best-selling Winter White honey. Winter White honey is a whipped or creamed honey variety. This means that we use a large mixer to whip air into the honey which changes the honey’s color and texture. It is 100% pure raw honey, white, smooth, spreadable and absolutely delicious! This honey…

Acacia Honey Dried Apricots

Summertime is here, there’s no doubt about it. When it gets this hot outside, the last thing I want to do is spend my time in a scorching kitchen. So instead of toiling away this week to create a recipe that requires baking, I decided to take the easy road with a no-bake snack. Dried…

News From the Savannah Bee Apiary and Bee Garden

The Savannah Bee, bee garden is crazy right now. Nectar is flowing and our honey bees are super busy. Supers (bee boxes) are stacked high, and overall, I am very pleased with our bee’s current progress. Recently, I have been asked several times when we are going to harvest our bee garden honey. Luckily, we will…

Occasions like these merit an arsenal of simple, quick recipes that can be whipped up at a moment’s notice. Cue the Walnut,…

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…
