Honey, honey?

My mother-in-law graced me with the pleasure of experiencing the best honey I have ever had. (As you can see we ate a ton of it already!) She purchased a locally made honey infused with lemon balm from Great Cape Herbs in Brewster, Massachusetts. The perfect companion to their spearmint herbal tea. Brew it and serve it on ice for a very refreshing drink on a hot summer day. We also eat in on whole wheat bread with a smidgen of organic peanut butter. This is my daughter's favorite! If you are ever on the north side of Cape Cod it is worth the trip and the $9 for the jar.

A friend of mine who has lived all over the U.S. has always made an appoint to eat locally made honey. The theory is that if you eat local honey you will gradually build up a tolerance to the pollen that causes hay fever in that area. (She is so smart!)
