On the day of the world premiere of “Russia’s Honey”, CBC News’ Anne Thompson travelled to the city of Novosibirsk to find out how the Russian scientific community has cooked up a honey recipe.
“This is a very, very different honey,” says Thompson.
“There’s a lot of flavour in this.”
In this video, she explains what to look for and how to make the best honey cake.
This honey cake has the aroma of a freshly baked Russian cake with a touch of honey.
There are five different types of honey that are used in the Russian food industry, and each is made from a different type of bee.
The honey in this cake is made with an extract from a honeybee called Apis mellifera.
The flavour comes from the honey that’s already been in the bees wings.
“The smell of honey is what gives it that characteristic flavour, but the taste is what’s the real magic,” says the beekeeper.
This particular honey is produced by harvesting honey from the colonies of Apis domestica, the bee with the best genetics and longevity.
The bees wings are harvested, then soaked in honey and then dried for months to allow the seeds to germinate.
The seeds then grow into the honey and are then placed in the bee’s hive.
“You need a hive, it needs to be well-drained, well-protected, you need to be able to keep it warm,” says Danikova.
The hive is then set up to make a honeycomb that will give the bees its honey, then it’s then put in the oven to bake.
The oven has to be very well-ventilated, because that’s when the bees pollen starts to fall.
The beekeepers honey is then boiled until it reaches a consistency that’s similar to a cake.
The finished honey cake is then placed into a plastic bag and put into the freezer for two to three weeks.
After the honey has cooled, the bees are allowed to fly away and return the next day to pick it up again.
The best time to eat this honey cake?
If you have a good appetite, you can eat the honey cake on a special occasion like Valentine’s Day.
“A lot of people are very excited to taste the honey,” said Danikovas partner, Alexander Rysakov.
“It’s very special because it’s produced from the bees, it’s really special.
This honeycake is very, well, special. “
We’re also doing a special wedding for the Russian people, we’re making this cake for our family, and I’m going to be marrying my cousin and having her try it.”
This honeycake is very, well, special.
It’s a cake that tastes like Russian honey, and a delicious treat for Valentine’s day.
But this honey is not the only thing Russian scientists have cooked up.
The Russian authorities are also producing honey for a number of other products, like flavoured wine and vodka.
The first batch of Russian honey will be exported to Britain next year.
