As winter begins, add some lemon zest and slices of lemons to a jar full that you have heated (only slightly) to mix in the zest and slices and leave in the fridge for a week, then use when you get a cold by the spoon full or with hot water, or to keep colds away.

I won a raffle (that's got to be a first!) and now I have about 7 quite large jars of various kinds of honey! Apart from having it on toast I have no idea what to do with so much of it, I would love to know if I could brew honeymead from it? Any suggestions out there in messageboardland?

Honey will also keep pretty much for ever so long as it is a cool, dark place.

I just remembered, Mum used to make a delicious honey roll with a honey cream filling. it was an old Margaret Fulton sponge roll recipe and it was delicious.

After saying that, I Googled honey sponge roll and this one came up. It is by Suzanne Gibbs ( daughter of Margaret Fulton) so you can bet your bottom dollar it is the one I was talking about.

4 eggs, separated
½ cup (110g) caster sugar, plus extra, for dusting
½ cup (75g) cornflour
2 tablespoons plain flour
1 teaspoon mixed spice
½ teaspoon ground cinnamon
2 teaspoons baking powder
1 tablespoon honey, at room temperature
Honey cream filling
90g unsalted butter
2 tablespoons honey

Preparation method

1. Preheat oven to 180°C or 160°C fan. Lightly grease and line base and sides of a 26cm x 32cm swiss roll pan.

2. Using an electric mixer, beat eggwhites until stiff but not dry. Add sugar, 1 tablespoon at a time, beating constantly until mixture is thick and glossy. Beat in egg yolks until just mixed.

3. Meanwhile, finely sift cornflour, flour, spices and baking powder. Lightly fold into egg mixture with honey, mixing gently until evenly distributed. Fill prepared pan shaking gently to spread mixture evenly.

4. Bake for 20 minutes, until risen and firm when lightly pressed with a fingertip. Turn out onto a tea towel lightly dusted with extra caster sugar. Quickly peel off paper and trim edges. Roll up immediately in tea towel starting from short edge. Leave to cool completely.

5. Using an electric mixer, beat butter until pale and creamy. Add honey and beat until well mixed. Add 2 tablespoons water and continue beating until mixture is smooth and creamy. Unroll cake and spread over filling. Roll up again and serve cut across into slices.
