COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Drottninggelé kallas den speciella föda som matas till larver som i framtiden skall bli till bidrottningar. Det här halvsöta på gränsen till söta och farligt tilltalande mjödet från lindskogarna kring Drottningholm, kanske kan liknas vid en mänsklig variant av denna gelé. Det återstår att se vem den matas till, men den kommer ju i alla fall ifrån närområdet av kommande drottningars tillhåll. Det är linden som dominerar mjödet, trots betydande drag från raps och sälg, vilket troligtvis beror på ett större, men vid analys, osynligt, inslag av honungsdagg från lind.
