Honey Recipe Collections were started by my Dad listening to a radio show called Aunt Daisy. Father passed away in 1947, I have kept them ever since then.

We use lots of honey and our family.

    • One tablespoon honey mixed in one pint of milk and frozen for ice block treats
    • A large tablespoon of honey for each pot of soup.
    • Droplets of honey, on the babies pacifier.
    • Honey applied directly to burns, sores and bites,
    • Plant cuttings for rooting dipped in honey to prevent rot.
    • Honey for bee stings
    • Honey for sweetener in herbal tea, black tea and green tea.
    • Lemon and honey drinks, hot for colds or just a hot drink before going to bed; cold for refreshing summer drink.
    • Equal quantities of honey and vinegar for that persistent cough, especially at night also to help one sleep on those restless nights.
    • Honey, butter and toast for breakfast.
    • I get most proved especially apple slices in a solution of honey and water before drying in the dehydrator.

Gourmet Honey Defined

Monday, June 16th, 2008

gourmet honeyGourmet Honey Defined is not a new age metaphor or a greener definition of a selection of honey that has had its’ name generated in a marketing think tank, but rather a condition of natural selection that has been almost forgotten since the buy Gourmet Honey Nowcommercialization of the honey industry.

Gourmet honey has graced the tables of local apiaries since the beginning of civilization. Honey from a specific area or local usually was collected by the beekeeping families of many generations. The beekeeper found out which flowers of the area made the best honey and then sold that honey at a premium. Seldom was a surplus for export ever collected.

Commercial beekeeping today centers around pollination, honey is the by-product. Blended flavors of honey from the areas and flowers that the beekeeper visits in the honey flow make up a blend of “table honey”, “cooking honey” and “wildflower honey” all of which are non-descript, sweet honeys. The beekeeper may start in Florida, move to California then to the Midwest and north as far as North Dakota and Montana then back to Florida for the winter. This is a similar practice that Egyptian beekeepers participated in every year. The barges were loaded with beehives and floated down the Nile to a new location as each flower source produced nectar.

Today there are fewer permanent apiaries as there are fewer single family farms. Home use and hobbyist beekeepers are no longer vogue. Those smaller apiaries have the distinct flare of carrying on the tradition of producing gourmet honey from single flower sources. A few commercial beekeepers have honey flows from yellow star thistle, tupelo, blackberry and palmetto to name a few that are harvested separate.

The next step in defining gourmet honey is that during harvesting, storing and processing the honey temperature does not raise above 120 degrees F to insure natural color, flavor, essence and original nutrition.

The Gourmet Station has defined gourmet honey perfectly in saying that like wine, honey has “nose”, different hues of colors from crystal clear as water to an opaque dark brown. The flavors range from tupelo honey that taste like a floral arrangement smells to star thistle honey that dances on the buds to heavenly music, daintily leaving only footprints of floral nuances as it skips from the palate. No this no ordinary honey found on the syrup aisle of the grocery store, this is gourmet honey defined! The Gourmet Station has long been touted as an authority of gourmet foods. Gourmet Station specializes in Fine Dining Delivered. Truffle Gift Birthday Dinner, Anniversary Dinner, Thank You Dinner, Thinking Of You Dinner, or Congratulations Dinner all delivered to your door. If you are seeking exquisite food gifts, check out the Gourmet Station!

Gourmet honey can still be found even in the face of bee decline. The shortage of bees is a global threat to our supply of food. 30% to 40% of all our food is pollinated by bees. Support of your gourmet honey beekeeper, by buying gourmet honey, is a direct benefit to your next meal. The food you eat next year will have its’ seeds pollinated this summer!
