A Box of Honey

Mi Comadre and my best friend Andrea, whom I have known and loved for over 45 years, sent me this delicious box of honey from The Blue Sage Honey Company as my Christmas present.  We have shared so many laughs and tears, and good times over the years, and even though we now live in two different states, we are still going strong.  I am definitely looking forward to the next 45+ years.  My box of honey was a present.  Of course, I had to open it right away.  Andrea would be very disappointed in me if I did not open it the minute I received it.  And boy, am I glad I did too.  It was filled with all these delicious and unusual infused honeys.

My gift box included cinnamon honey, rose honey, chamomile honey, lavender honey and ginger honey.  I just had to try them all too.  They are all delicious, but my two favorites were the ginger and the lavender honeys.  I know they will all be great in tea, but I want to find better, more creative ways to really highlight these wonderful flavors too.  Stay tuned for some new and creative honey recipes in the near future.

Blue Sage Honey Company is located in the Sierra Mountains of Northern California.  “It is a small batch woman-owned business, inspired by love of honey bees, quality foods, the environment and sharing goodness in the world”.  Blue Sage Honey Company is owned any operated by Abra and her husband.  Abra and her husband have chosen to live close to the land, where they farm as much of their own food as they can, love their animals and their honey bees, and are avid gardeners.  Rather than succumbing to the hustle and bustle that is so prevalent in today’s world, they chose to give it all up for a clean, simple life instead. Preserving and protecting the honey bees is their passion, and a portion of every sale goes to the education of preserving and protecting the honey bees.

Protecting and preserving the environment is another passion and way of life for the Blue Sage Honey Company. All of the packaging they use is environmentally and eco-friendly, and they try to re-use and re-purpose things that are already being used and are in circulation as much as they can.

You can contact the Blue Sage Honey Company by calling them at (510) 292-7053 or by visiting them on line at BlueSageHoneyCo@gmail.com

      1. What—there are things you don’t like?! I’ve actually converted several folks from disliking bleu cheese to liking it with this honey tip. Choose a mild creamier bleu cheese, bring to room temp, put some on a cracker or bread, then drizzle with honey. Delish!!

      2. NO can do!!!! I am not really much of a cheese person at all. My absolute worst day in culinary school was “Cheese day”. We had to try about 60 different types of cheeses. I took the smallest, most miniscule pieces i could then washed them all down with a ton of water. There were many times I thought I was going to be sick. Just can’t do a lot of cheese, and the blue veined cheeses are the worst. the stronger the cheese, the more I hate them and just can’t stomach them. So, yep, there ARE things I don;t eat. 🙂
