A friend of mine has bees and sells his honey to a candy manufacturer in our state. I love the taste of his honey, but the honest truth is that I cannot afford to buy it from him, it is exceptionally expensive. Instead, I have found an alternative to get my honey fix.
YS Organic Bee Farms Raw Honey can be purchased at numerous online websites, and it is not nearly as expensive as expected. The 22 ounce container sells for as low as $6.99, which is a great price. I have spent more than that on regular honey in the stores, but this one is so much healthier and tastes wonderful.
YS Organic Bee Farms Raw Honey is certified organic, and the label states that it is “100% pure, unheated, unfiltered, unprocessed … straight from the hive”. That means that you are getting all of the benefits of the pure raw honey in its unadulterated state. The live enzymes, vitamins and minerals have all been preserved!
For safe delivery purposes, I am glad that this honey comes packaged in a plastic container, but I honestly prefer to store all of my foods in glass containers. If the glass were to break during shipment it would be a mess, so YS Organic Bee Farms gets a pass from me on this issue.
If you have not ever tasted raw honey such as this one, you are in for a treat. It will seem different at first, because this honey is not runny and sticky like normal honey. But rather, it is very thick – almost like a honey butter or even a peanut butter. It is tempting to eat it straight from the jar with a spoon (and I do eat my peanut butter that way!).
Honey has so many uses, and they don’t all have to do with food. Some people use honey to make facial masks, some use it for its healing properties because it is a natural antiviral and antibiotic. My grandmother always used to mix honey with whiskey when she would get a sore throat, and I can attest to the fact that this works better than any throat lozenge I have ever tried. It coats the throat, and has a soothing and numbing sensation on a sore throat.
My husband and I have taken a liking to using honey in our coffee and tea on occasion, it gives the beverage a whole new flavor. Other ways I use it is to whip it with real butter and make honey butter, this is so delicious on a piece of toast, or even spread on an acorn squash baking in the oven.
When I learned that I had some bone loss, I read I should drink lemon water every day because it leaves an alkaline ash, and acidic diets rob our bones of needed calcium. I don’t really care for the taste of lemon water, but when a little bit of raw honey is added to it, it tastes almost like a natural lemonade.
Once you taste YS Organic Bee Farms Raw Honey, you might never again be satisfied with the honey that is available in your local stores. Try it, you might love it.
