Spring: Creamed Honey

The turning over of the seasons brings the warmth of spring, and with it, sometimes unpleasant ordeals, such as allergies. For a long time I had been told that eating locally-grown honey can help temper seasonal hay fever, but as much as I liked the concept, I found it hard to eat honey, which is too sweet for my taste and usually involves a sticky mess (especially with children). By happy accident I picked up a bottle of creamed honey from the organic food store, and discovered bliss. Creamed honey is the same as regular honey, but it's whipped so as to be spreadable. It's perfect on toast in the morning with tea.
And since another unpleasant reality of the spring weather is a return to dieting, creamed honey has made my enforced abstinence from jam--shall we say, sweeter?

I've never really been a fan of honey, but creamed honey actually sounds delicious. BTW, I enjoyed hearing you on the Catholic Moments podcast.

Thanks Julie! Deanna, you can get it at Better Thymes in Front Royal. It's right next to the regular honey: both come from Berryville, VA. (So they should have lots of local pollens!)
