Welcome to Mise en Place, a journey of culinary delight where anything can happen. Based on the Colorado Department of Agriculture’s list of food by month, KRCC takes a look at farmers, chefs, and fodder, all with a Centennial State bent. Each month, the state’s agriculture department highlights a commodity and provides a recipe using that product. We take it a step further.

When I found out that this month’s featured product was honey, I knew there was only one place I could turn. Donna Hartley and her husband John own Black Forest Honey. Donna has spent some time on KRCC weaving sticky sweet tales of honey bee adventures. So I decided to ask her…just where do the bees go in wintertime? Take a listen:
