Find of the week
Browsing the stalls at Finders Keepers on the weekend I found Two Busy Bees creamed berry honey which is infused with red berries. Creamed honey is aged honey that has been whipped very slowly for a day and sets naturally in the jar. It is thick and delicious!
Made by a father and daughter team in suburban Geebung, Two Busy Bees create artisan cold filtered polyfloral honey, natural peanut butter, nut butter blends and overnight oats, with only the most natural of Queensland grown ingredients. Available online at Two Busy Bees
