For the best raw HONEY in the world, go to Apitherapy Honey Gardens website and order up five pound jars! Or smaller, if you really think you won't eat five pounds in a month. They also have a fabulous blog all about bee-keeping, bee-loving plants, herbs, nature, simple living - everything we, on this blog, love! Here is their blog address, and here is their regular website where you can order up. I used to help my neighbors harvest their honey years ago. They kept hives on their rooftop here in Berkeley, and also in Tilden Park, Martinez and out in the central valley of California. They constructed a small 'honey house' made of pine on the side of their home, and the quality of the light combined with the fragrance of sweetness inside that small warm space as we extracted the golden elixir by spinning the combs in a giant drum was about as close to a divine experience as any other I could name, like standing on the peak of a mountain, swimming in the ocean, looking up at the stars on a moonless night. Honeybees are truly divine creatures, and we must protect them! By the way I embroidered one of these bees for my neighbor years ago. The design is from the old DMC Cross-stitch Design Library, IVth series.
