Thank you queen, I can't wait to read this!

Well clothes can be hand me down, as are my phone and laptop, mom buys groceries because I have only just left hs, and you can get some books and shows for free online. But you can't buy an online copy of honey or hand me down honey, or even borrow honey to give back. I have cinnamon honey, cream honey, clear honey, pasteurised honey, manuka honey, unpasteurised honey, local honey, bulgarian honey, honey from a relative's garden, and free honey packets from places. I think it is the best and sometimes think about my honeys as I fall asleep. I even had a bee fact file and a book from the library about bee anatomy and different types of bee. I sued to get in trouble in computer science for looking at bees instead of working. I intend to keep bees and understand that honey is very precious. Do you have a favourite type of honey or any types you can recommend?

>>97921
Thank you also queen, maybe I will download offline. Did you get much from this book?

I did not know this but that's very blessed.

Holy hell anon I'm fucking crying from laughter you're amazing.
I love honey and my favorite so far is a huge jar I got from a local farmer. It has really deep caramel notes even though it's supposedly raw. I also have no idea what flowers are used, but hey it says it's local. I also love those jars of honey that have honey comb in them since it's fun to chew on it.
Bees are incredible animals, and I've heard beekeeping is very fun! I wish you the best in your honey endeavours!

I'm literally quivering, I can't believe bees are so coordinated and intelligent. I wouldn't believe such small creatures could be so complex but they are a great team. Have you seen how they kill wasps by creating wing friction around a wasp, in this big circle and cook it to death? And their cognitive abilities as described in https://phys.org/news/2018-12-bees-nerve-cells-brains.html they are almost as smart as the people bees in the bee movie! However I have been seeing a few dead bees recently, on the ground, and I don't know why.

>>98632
You really can manage your finances and acquire honey, it's possible but you have to keep your eyes on the goal (honey) every time you think about buying something you don't really need. You will have honey and thank you I will find honey happiness too

>>99027
I am so jealous. I would think about that jar of honey 24/7, and it's extra beautiful with the honeycomb intact. Deep caramel notes sounds like great coffee honey, but high heat can change the flavour, or for baking. And really you have to wonder how the type of flowers the bees like impacts the honey's taste, all these variables in honey making I can't wait to test one day. I have recently acquired acacia honey, ideal for milk tea, but honeycomb intact honey is the next goal. I would love to chew on the comb but I want to cry thinking of the beauty being destroyed. And scared of all the sugar. But yes, there is something very special about local honey, I hope you enjoy your delicacy and try honey as good as the one from our local village farm store (very mild and mellow), these really are the finer things in life.

Thank you! I have budgeted some moneys in order to acquire some honeys and I’m ready to make a purchase. I have ordered some local clover and wildflower honeys but I was wondering if you had any special honey recommendations that could be purchased online?

You're the best honey anon, please don't ever change. And yeah it's amazing in coffee! I love to bake with it because of how caramelly it tastes and it amplifies it even more. Lately though I've been trying to find a way to use it without heating it too much since it's just so beautiful on it's own. Usually I have some on toast and it is heavenly. Plus it's been too damn hot for regular coffee, so I want try to make a syrup out of some to use in iced coffee.
I also find it fascinating how much the flavor can change depending on the flowers. I've had honey from this farmer before, but it was way more floral and mild than the one I currently have. I don't know if it's beacause they were growing different crops or if there was a type of wildflower that the bees liked better that season. It sounds like it would be a lot of fun to play around with what you grow and then see (taste) what happens.
Also, I think different types of environments play a role too. I swear that honey tastes different depending on where it's from. For example, I've noticed that clover honey from another state tastes different than clover honey in my home state. One of my life goals is to travel across the US, sightsee, and along the way buy honey from farmer stands and compare them. I would love to see what variety other countries have too! I want to build up my honey hoard with as many different types of honey I can get my hands on.
As for honeycomb, definitely try it! My favorite way to eat it is to chew on it like gum then just swallow it when I'm done. It's also great on stuff like toast or in tea where it sort of melts. And I understand you, sometimes I feel conflicted eating it since it is beautiful and is an overall amazing substance. But it's also one of my favorite foods that I grew up eating and is supposed to be good for you. In any case, I like to preserve the piece as much as possible so when I want some I try to break off just a little chunk at a time every once in a while. It's definitely an occasional treat, and if you try it I hope you enjoy it!

I will find recipes to try with honey then. I wonder what you bake with it, as the only honey based bakes I have hear of are like russian honey cake, which according to my sister, is the best. Do you make that?
Also you can use it as a glaze for meats, and it is the best in iced coffee. But what about ice honey? Honey popsicles? And idk if you know the store but there's a soap from Lush that LOOKS like honey/honeycomb, with honey in it. If you see it, they may give you a sample. It makes your body smell like honey so you don't need to cover yourself in honey anymore!

The fact that you're invested in trying different types of clover honey by state to taste the difference makes me think- there must be others who feel this way strongly. So you could start a honey tour of the US, in theory, with a bus journey that educates people on flora, fauna, and honey, with samples along the way. Like a wine tasting I guess.
The attitude people have to wine should be shared with honey. You should be able to sample honey by region, and taste the difference, and have honey harvesting tours. I think lots of people would be up for it, if not just us. Good for tourism. Maybe we will start a crystal cafe honey tour.

I think I will stop leaving the honeycomb as decoration. I am mildly exhilirated at this idea you have proposed, of chewing the combs. So many new textures for honey. And verifiably, it is GREAT on toast. Best on softer breads .

>>99172
Local honey…I'm so jealous…that's solid stuff. I really love rose infused honey, you can even make it at home if you can't purchase it. This is ideal with mild and light wildflower honeys too. Just cut up the rose petals into small pieces, drop them into a jar, and add your honey on top. You have to mix so that the petals are covered and that there are no air gaps, a chopstick or knife will do. Then, you seal it, and can leave it for a month (if you're dedicated) and strain it, leaving only the liquidy part, now infused with rose petals. This can be purchased online though. I'm really excited for you to try new honey! Mead is good too.

I had a bumblebee costume, fluffy and stripy when I was little. When I wore it, I felt right. Not in a trans way, but like I had found myself, becoming purposeful and stripy and glorious. And when we were sick, my mom usually made concoctions with honey, like honey, hot tea and pepper, saying that the honey was super for your health, so it seemed like it had powers.

I've bought acacia honey before, but I didn't really like it. My favorite honey is orange blossom honey. It's what I grew up with and I use it in everything.

Rose honey sounds really good! When I was a kid my mom used to make tea with honey ginger and lemon to help with colds. It was so good.

I mostly use honey in cakes and cookies when I bake. My favorite so far is Chef John's lace cookies, which I highly recommend! They're pretty simple, come out gorgeous, and are so good! I love how caramelized it tastes and the little bits of almonds, and even though the cookies work very well with chocolate, I prefer them without. I haven't made russian honey cake yet, but I want to try it out when it cools off. I also want to try using more in breads, like in place of regular sugar or maybe in babka with some cinnamon. And frozen honey would be divine right now! I've been using some on top of ice cream but I might just freeze some in an ice cube tray and see how that goes. Also, rose honey sounds so good, I have some really mild wildflower honey I want to try it with. Oh, and I want to try infusing with vanilla bean since that might come out really good too. And I don't have any Lush stores around me, but that soap sounds amazing!
Honey tours are a great idea! I feel like there's so many nuances from different region to even different seasons. And there has to be some farms where they do tours and tasting, like with wine or olive oil. It would be so exciting!

How did this thread turn into a honey thread lmao
Anyway, OP >>97871, I have read it. The points can be somewhat redundant but I learned a couple or few from it. Stoicism is based. Easier said than done though.

I can't believe all of these new possibilities you just opened up for me. I didn't even know what a lace cookie was! Thank you for the baking ideas and I was also thinking of freezing yogurt and slightly swirling honey into it so you could get at the streaks of honey.
