A Little Bee Magic – Cooking with Honey

“Nothing says Spring like tiny little black and yellow fuzzy-striped bodies buzzing around in a happy song.”

I have always been particulary fond of bees. Nothing says Spring like tiny little black and yellow fuzzy-striped bodies buzzing around in a happy song. They are the worlds most efficient and lovely little polinators, keeping our gardens, fruit trees and favorite flowers in bloom.

When it comes to cooking there is nothing I like more than a little honey. Did you know that local honeys are particularly helpful in treating allergies to local pollens?  Not only it is tasty, it is healthy. Lots of bang for your buck in a sweet little punch.

Some of my favorite uses for honey are as a sweetner in hot tea, an alternative to maple syrup on pancakes and as a sweet kick for plain Greek yogurt (Brown Cow Greek Yogurt is my personal favorite). If you’re feeling a little under the weather (with a scratchy, sore throat) there is nothing like this sweet Southern home remedy: Thoroughly mix equal parts bourbon, honey and lemon (about 2 tablespoons each). Swallow. Feel better!

P.S. Maker’s Mark is this Kentucky girl’s favorite bourbon (just in case you want to know)!
