Donning a veiled helmet and protective gloves, my first task is to remove honeycombs from the beehive. As I sweep the bees off from the comb and guide them back to their hive, I inject a puff of smoke into the hive to tranquilise the bees, which also gives me time to insert a separator board where the honey is collected. My first task is to extract the honey from the honeycomb before I infuse it with the petals of the rose flower. With over 100 different species of rose, So, I can actually make different varieties of rose infused honey, using different rose species! The leaves are borne alternatively on the stem of the flower. I personally like infusing this honey because it is my favourite infusion varieties to eat as well. The room just smells absolutely magical during the infusion process and as I infuse the honey with rose I don't feel as if it is some task but an interesting activity to perform!
