From all the things I’ve been reading about honey…
Local honey seems to be the way to go. There are more back-yard bee keepers out there than you’d think. Most certainly one in your town. They love what they do and they’d be more than happy to share it with you!
The Heritage Store in Norfolk kept local honey on tap. Bringing in your own container wasn’t looked down upon. In GA, the local honey man Dan at the farmer’s market wouldn’t have turned me away if I brought one to him.But he sold his in lovely glass jars I could reuse or recycle.
I cook more with honey now that I’ve discovered the ills of agave syrup, and I’ll reach for nature’s nectar any day before I reach for the processed stuff. Mainly because unprocessed tastes better.
I tried to grow my own Stevia plant three times now but it never takes. I haven’t given up yet…I’ll try again. And part of the fun of moving to a new place is finding local products. I’ll have to check at the farmer’s market for this one.
And my man? He hopes to take up beekeeping in the future. Oh, yeah! Tons o’ fun!!
