Tasting Honey

Learning to distinguish various flavors in honey - or really any food - takes some time and lots of sampling!  We had a packed house at the most recent Honey Tasting in Brookline, NH  at the Brookline Public Library.  Thanks to everyone who took time out of their busy Thursday to join us!!

Everyone got to try and identify a few mystery honeys - supermarket honey, orange blossom, blueberry, and more!  And we realized two things - honey has a lot more flavors than anyone expected and it was hard to put a name to them!

Then we sampled honey from all  over the US and world. What a great souvenir honey makes! Honey provides a true local flavor and often results in the most beautiful conversations.

Do you have a favorite flavor of honey? Orange blossom is the favorite of many folks over 60 as this was a big favorite in supermarkets "way back when...."

Stay tuned for a report on the new queens and how everyone is settling this spring!
