I found my honey at a local import store this summer, where I was delighted to find all sorts of kosher honey from all over the world. (Here's the deal with honey--if it's raw it doesn't need a kosher certification, if it's not raw it needs one).
The differences in taste, texture and color of honey depend on the kind of nectar the bees have been collecting and there are as many subtle flavors of honey as there are plant nectar sources. Did you know that a bee must tap the nectar of two million flowers to produce one pound of honey?
Speaking of honey, we have a winner for the Gary Rosenthal honey bowl! My granddaughter Moussia was very excited to pick the winner...
the cape on the corner will be receiving Gary's beautiful honey bowl this week in the mail.
Her comment was:
"oh my gosh, how i would love to bring this to my mom's dinner!
thanks for offering this!"
i should be mopping the floor
