Honey! Hey there sweetie...
I LOVE HONEY!
Hubby had found an article talking about how grocery store honey really isn’t much honey anymore because of all the stuff that gets added to it. Since then I try and buy from local growers.
There’s a family on Etsy I use – their soap is also amazing and doesn’t dry my skin out!
I enjoy honey, but I feel like it overpowers my tea most of the time. I’ll put it in chamomile, or another herbal if I’m sick.
I have some especially local honey from nearby, and then I also have a jar from a farm in south Georgia, which you can buy online: http://www.weekshoneyfarm.com/order_honey.html I am crazy for their orange blossom honey.
Awesome. Until recently, I’d only ever had normal, joe schmoe honey (in a plastic bear or otherwise). Then I found some cream honey from a local apiary and tried that, and it was so. Freaking. Good. Now I’m realising that the world of honey is as diverse and complex as the world of tea, and I can’t wait to try different kinds. (My honey education will go a lot more slowly, though—boy is it expensive!)
Haha, yep. I’m pretty sure I bought a 16 oz jar of the orange blossom one for $6, and that was the same price as my 6 oz bottle from closer to home!
That’s a great price. I just bought an 8.8oz jar for I think about $6-$8. When it runs out, I think I’ll shop around a bit.
I use honey from local farms, usually a teaspoon full per cup. Or if the honey comes in one of those cute little plastic bears I give him one big squeeze. :)
I drink mine plain as it is, unless I’m suffering with a cold or a throat infection, in which case I find a spoonful of honey stirred into tea to be super soothing.
We’ve just taken stock of a range of honeys, so the honey fans amongst you may like to check them out :)
I know this post is old, but I wanted to add something. I recently found Acacia honey while shopping in the “gourmet foods” section at Marshall’s. I love it in tea because it is VERY mild. It only has a hint of floral honey flavor, so it doesn’t overpower the tea. And a little bit goes a long way for sweetening the tea. :)
