YieldMakes a yolks worth ;)
1 tablespoon fresh/frozen bee pollen (thawed)
1 teaspoon raw local organic honey
1 pinch mixed spice (the sweet kind)
1. Take a small cup or bowl and squish the pollen down into the delicious nectar (the honey I used was raw honeycomb) so that the grains are no longer separate, and you have a beautiful golden paste.
2. Sprinkle in the spice and spoon out.
Crystalbat's ThoughtsBy crystalbat
I have recently been having a sort of beegan/vegan/vaguan identity crisis hehe, but only in terms of explaining my views to others.
Anyhow, I completely love and give respect and gratitude to the magical bumblebees and have recently discovered how amazingly good and delicious fresh/frozen bee pollen tastes.
It is soft and melty and reminds me in some ways of egg yolk. i was given some (lucky) and ate it whilst doing a juice feast, and today, bee-ing Easter Sunday, I thought I’d make a sweet treat with the last bit.
It was like something eaten at a fairy banquet and felt like a childhood fantasy of how egg yolks should taste. Erm, I do go on.
Anyhow, you could make it into a fried or boiled egg type novelty treat for kids by using coconut meat or melon for the white.
I was thinking about adding some other things (vanilla, lucuma, etc but it is so pure and delicious it isn't needed) and shaping into a yolk and making a novelty creme egg/fried egg with something white.
Happy springy bright Easter day to all.
