Björn’s Honeyed Blood Orange Panna Cotta
Panna cotta means “cooked cream” in Italian and making it is about that easy. Cream and sugar are cooked and then mixed with unflavored gelatin, then sour cream and cold milk. It does have to set for around 4 hours but otherwise, it is a super easy dessert for a cozy winter dinner at home as a Valentine’s Day treat. Tastes like a grown-up orange creamsicle!

Björn’s Honey Baklava

Baklava is often associated with Greek cuisine but it's a dish that dates back to the Ottoman empire. It is eaten throughout the Mediterranean and middle east and is very popular in Turkey. Turks and Greeks both claim the dish as their own, but it likely belongs to both cultures. Made with layers of thin dough and ground nuts, most often pistachios or walnuts, and sugar syrup or honey, it’s a great way to highlight the taste of our local honey.

Björn's Honey Sweet Mulled Apple Cider
It goes without saying that this is the time of year to cozy up with loved ones and a warm drink. I like warm honey mulled cider. This recipe calls for classic mulling spices, which I blend myself so I can tweak the amount of each spice to my mood and potency of the spices, I have on hand. It also calls for honey to lightly sweeten and add that warm flavor which goes great with apple. 
 

Canelés de Bordeaux using Björn's Beeswax in the Molds

Canelés de Bordeaux using Björn's Beeswax in the Molds

Canelés de Bordeaux are the new cool pastry that you might have seen around town. These small cakes are so much more than just a cake. They are crispy on the outside and soft and gooey on the inside with a flavor like creme brulee and crème anglaise. And the best part is they use beeswax to glaze the molds! It’s such a fun way to use beeswax in a recipe.
