Book Review: The Backyard Beekeeper’s Honey Handbook

| April/May 2010

The Backyard Beekeeper’s Honey Handbook  
• By Kim Flottum
• (Quarry Books, 2009)
• 168 Pages; $24.99

This guide to all things honey takes readers through the final stages of honey refinement. From extracting and storing to selling and cooking, Kim Flottum gives detailed and beautifully illustrated directions that will help you produce the best honey possible.

Flottum, editor of Bee Culture magazine, shares matter-of-fact beehive management basics. But he also reveals the creative process involved in managing a beehive. You’ll have a new appreciation for the countless varieties of artisanal honey that you and your bees can produce.

For those who may not have a strong beekeeping background, Flottum’s honey-infused recipes are equally as inspiring as his invaluable advice to infuse honey with herbs. His recipe for Baklava: The Honey Dessert King is made even sweeter with thyme-infused honey.

Ariel Tilson is an editorial intern for The Herb Companion.
