" honey is the only natural food that contains all the substances necessary to sustain human life, including water "
In my childhood,my grandmother introduced us to Buckwheat Honey as a home made cold medication added to hot milk or tea.
She also drizzled honey on top of homemade full-fat Greek yogurt as a rich smooth dessert.
My absolute favorites are Chestnut Blossom Honey and Saffron Acacia Honey,available at
De Laurenti(Pike Place Market Seattle).
Floral,dark and spicy the Chestnut Blossom honey is mysterious and not very sweet, loaded with pollen,tannins & mineral salts.
Drizzle Chestnat Blossom Honey over
sliced fresh pears.
Saffron Acacia Honey-
tastes as beautiful as it looks.
Saffron is a part of a remedy passed down from mother to daughter used to ease digestion,soothes coughs,treats light depression and has a reputation to bring cheerfulness and wisdom.
