The earliest evidence of honey being enjoyed in Scotland dates back to 1000 years BC - an Iron-age beaker that once contained mead was found in a burial chamber in Fife. Since before history, honey has added delicacy and sweetness to the Scottish diet. Scottish honey, with its fragrances of heather, meadowsweet, clover and birch, is a unique, magical ingredient, and the Honey Bible features a host of easy-to-prepare recipes drawing on this wonderful resource. Liz Ashworth introduces us to its versatility from dishes as varied as Medieval sweet pickled salmon and honey-spiced beetroot, to the delectable cranachan and more contemporary chocolate honey fudge cake. Prepared in collaboration with one of the UK's oldest and largest honey farms, Chain Bridge in the Borders, this book draws on the experience and traditions of generations of skilled beekeepers and Scottish cooks in the use of this quintessentially natural and organic food. Chain Bridge honey farm is a flourishing family business started by beekeeping advisor William Selby Robson in 1948. Specialising in natural honey products they produce everything from honeycombs to beeswax candles.
