Now we begin our foray into the liquid sugar realm, starting with honey. EVERYONE knows about honey – and I will refrain from diverging onto the windy path of ecology and how the bees, by producing honey from whatever region in whatever flavor, help feed the world by their pollination. I’ll just say this one thing PROTECT THE BEES PLEEEESE!!!
Honey is the world’s oldest known sweetener, and its flavor varies all over the world depending upon what nectar the bees have been feeding on, including something as weird as the flowering buckwheat plant. Lavender honey is one of my favorites, but then again all things lavender please me greatly! Have you ever had eucalyptus honey?!? Respond to this blog and let me know the most unusual honey you’ve ever had – I’m curious!! You can liquefy crystallized honey by microwaving it in 10 second increments until it liquefies (if you can get it out of the jar to begin with!).
