Honey for Thanksgiving! Recipes that Support Local Bees

27 Oct

Sugar? How very unauthentic. How very, dare I say, un-American.

This Thanksgiving, why not go old-school with a healthy dose of honey added to your traditional recipes? European colonists brought honeybees to North America in 1622, so you can be sure that cooking with honey from your local beekeeper is the original Patriot Act.

    Thank you! I’ve googled the substitution for sugar and honey many times – thanks for the information!

    I love this! Want to cook and bake now. I just roasted chestnuts, soaked them in rum, cloves, cinnamon sticks, vanilla pods, cardamon and then smashed them with my last drops of Chantal honey… 😉
