Photo O' the Day: Honey Pot

We definitely need to get the hives up and running. After 20-ish years without bees, my parents are finally running out of honey. This is the last barrel. And all those cute little squiggles along the edge of the container? Yup. Those are the finger marks of one very honey-hungry little (now big) girl. Never had crystallized honey out of the pot? It's heaven. Pure, unadulterated sugary heaven. Try mixing it with non-fat plain yogurt and fresh raspberries with cinnamon and nutmeg.
Speaking of honey, I just read a fascinating article about imported honey and how it originates in China, is shipped to other countries and then relabeled (as non-Chinese) before making its way into our grocery stores and food products. Lovely, more shady food from China. Perhaps we should go into the organic honey business. Check out the article here.
