Everyday Luxury - Honey

Of course you can buy honey year-round; but at farmers markets & coops, right now, beautiful jars & bottles of new golden honey are available. Saveur & Martha Stewart have good articles (& recipes) about honey. You can check with the National Honey Board for information about honey in your area.

If you're thinking "but I don't use honey enough & it just sits in a cupboard..." Leave the honey out on a counter or the table with a dripper. Look up a few recipes to use it with right away; it's not just for tea. Here's a favorite easy recipe & a favorite cake. You'll begin to use it more often. GG Guarantee.

And of course there are few things as satisfying on a chilly autumn day than bread & honey. Unless it's a spoon & honey. But we're trying to be less piggy these days;)
