Confronting my fear of bees, litres of mead and Hans Martin
Thanks to Hans Martin for one of the most interesting days I have enjoyed in recent memory and for helping me confront my fear of bees.
As the year passes, I am becoming more interested in what it takes to produce or preserve food and I feel I wouldn't be true to my French and German blood if I didn't include some kind of alcohol to that mix. (Cheese and sausage will hopefully be next)
Martin is a member of the Toronto District Beekeepers Association and kindly agreed to teach me how to make mead, a honey based alcohol, at his King City home.
The full story and video is here.
Next drink on the list is hopefully ginger beer.
