We had a small stall at a local street party yesterday and sold 22 pots of Friisinniityn Hunaja. This is the honey from our garden in Espoo. We did not whip it up so it has remained clear and runny. We printed our own very simple labels (not a great photo).
The locals were quite impressed that someone had made a honey that was, so to speak, a product of the flowers in their own gardens! In fact some of the neighbours seemed quite sceptical so I guess we will have people peering down the driveway looking for the hives soon. Others asked if they could come and knock on our door and buy more.
It's a limited edition (93 pots only) and ONLY available in Friisilä. Now that's what I call local food!
Friisinniity is the name of the main street through Friisilä (our postcode in Espoo) and literally means Frisians Field, named after the original settlers who arrived in the 16th century from Frisia in the Netherlands.
