the bees did a really good job

Many Saturday's we head out to our community and the neighbouring community's Farmer's Market - we have found some wonderful jams such as Strawberry Pineapple Jam and Rhubarb Jam, as well as beautiful bread and streudel and farm fresh sausage. But yesterday we tasted the most delicious  HONEY!!! Oh yeah! The jam lady also has her own honey and we bought a jar from the blackberry bushes - IT. IS. THE. BEST. HONEY. EVER!!

Now typically with many foods, you can not compare grocery store alternatives to home made and there's been stories in the news about our honey being mixed with poor quality Chinese honey (I don't know if that's true or not) but farm fresh honey, direct from the apiarist is the way to go.

I'm not normally much of a sweets person, and although I like honey, I don't remember to eat it daily, but I definitely want to eat this sweet and very flavourful honey every day.

So thank you little honey bees. The odds are always against you, but we really appreciate your tireless efforts. Our taste buds are thanking you every day.

I can't say I've eaten a lot of honey in my life.

Teena - you need to go to a Farmer's Market and buy some delicious honey flavoured with local flowers or berries and I'm sure you'll change your mind!
