Now that I’m basically a honey expert (hah), I’ve been seeing honey everywhere! And tasting it whenever I can.
A colleague of mine recently sold me her Pure Alaska Mellifera Honey, and it is excellent. Rich and complex, with a hint of cinnamon. So good on toast or in tea! Or anything, really (by the spoonful!).
Here’s the official description:
“Happy bees produced this honey in a small Alaska apiary circled by fields and mountains. Their wildflower favorites included fireweed, wild rose, and raspberry.”
I love eating local honey made by someone I know! I also love all the healthy properties of honey: it can help heal wounds, aid in lessening allergies, soothe burns, and is great for complexions! Pretty amazing stuff.

And, if you’re wondering, “Mellifera” is the kind of bee that makes this honey. Apis Mellifera (aka western honey bee or European honey bee) means honey-bearing bee.
Do you have a favorite honey?
