Honey bees simply adore sedums.  The star-shaped flowers have easily accessible nectar that the bees can gather and take back to their hives to make honey.

We all love honey and so for National BBQ Week between 27th May and 2nd June 2013, the team at Enviromat are sharing their favourite recipes for the sweet stuff.

Honey Syllabub

A lovely rich dessert that is very easy to prepare.  Serve with home baked biscuits or unfilled brandy snaps.


4 tablespoons clear honey

2 tablespoons dry sherry

2 tablespoons brandy

1 tablespoon fresh orange or lemon juice

Grated rind of 1 orange or lemon

300ml double cream

Mix the honey with the sherry, brandy and orange or lemon juice in a bowl.

Stir in the orange or lemon rind and the cream. 

Whisk until the mixture becomes thick and light,

Spoon it into tall glasses and chill the syllabub thoroughly before serving.

This would be a great follow on to our BBQ spare ribs with honey.
