We are taking a detour from cured meats to talk about HONEY! And PRIZES! Which one should I talk about first?
HONEY: The honey pictured above is Andrew’s Honey. I found this stuff at the Union Square Farmer’s Market where Andrew and his team have a stand on Wednesdays. GO THERE. For a few reasons:
1. They give out free samples.
2. Their honey is the best.
3. Did I mention the free samples?
Anyway, my favorite is the whipped honey with cinnamon. I eat it out of the jar with a spoon, like ice cream. Other things you can do with honey (note: NOT an exhaustive list): put it on fruit, oatmeal, throw it in tea, bake with it, make pizza with it, eat it out of the jar, glaze a ham with it, make peanut butter and honey and banana sandwiches…
This particular honey is 100% pure, local, raw honey. You can read more about it on their website, or just wander over to their stall in Union Square and try some.
Now, onto the PRIZES:
I’m giving away the little pot of honey (featured in the picture on the right-hand side). This one is local Brooklyn honey. Brooklyn’s finest. If you post a comment on the blog THIS WEEK you could win this pot of honey. Really, I will send it to you. So POST. We already have one comment, so don’t make this a one-man race.
In closing, a random fact: Did you know that there are a lot of clips on youtube of Winne the Pooh in Swedish? Anyone know what’s up with that? I was looking for a honey-related clip and came across them.
Oh, and don’t worry, we’ll be back to meat products tomorrow.
