Local Honey

QTWO | Oct 6, 2008 09:23 AM

I saw that honey was being discussed in another thread and I thought I would add a post here (too)...

I know a wee bit about honey and I wanted to steer everyone in the best direction... Honey does not have to be an excruciating experience. As a matter of fact, good, raw, floral honey can be an unparalleled taste treat. It's sad when beekeepers pawn off crummy honey and this leads the public to believe that all honey is crapola. :( Honey, in fact, is great on anything and everything. I use it as a complete sugar substitute (no more white stuff)... take in on my oatmeal, on fruit, in my daily coffee, on my ice cream, in a lot of asian dishes, on seafood, etc, etc, etc.

The best honey, by far, in all of SoFla is sold through Bees-N-The-Keys.
The company is a family-based operation in the Florida Keys and they are dedicated to no cooking, no preservatives and no additives (the stuff that makes honey taste metallic). The owner keeps all of his hives from Key Largo to Key West. The honey is local and raw... and, truly, delicious. The company does some craft fairs and plant shows (I don't think they have a store yet) where you can literally sample all of the varities before you make a purchase. I dare say, if Frod (I think?) had tasted the honey before he bought it, he would have made a different decision.
