Congratulations to Alistair (one of the parkside Directors), as his soft set honey won first prize in the 9 jars of home produced honey, labelled for sale at the Scottish Open National Show, held at the Dundee Flower and Food festival at Camperdown Park early in September.
This was the honey he harvested after the oil seed rape stopped flowering and he put into the freezer to slow the granulation down to produce fine crystals giving the soft set honey. He took it out of the freezer and filled his jars a fortnight ago.
He was also second in the national show novice class and first in the local beekeeper show novice class.
He also had some vegetables, pot plants and cut flowers in the show, and he gained first prize for standard fuscia, first prize for collection of cut herbs, first prize for cauliflowers and first prize for potato collection.
