Look at all this beatiful food. So much. So delicious. It's often breakfast, or my post-gym meal. And I like it cold. Also, a recent discovery: tupelo honey. It's hard to make out, but there's just a bit drizzled in the bowl.
I've never been a big honey girl, but then I heard an interview with Grace Pundyk, who wrote The Honey Trail. From the sound of it, she was inspired to write the book after her experience eating Yemini honey. She talked about the terroir of honey, and mentioned Tupelo honey (from norther Florida, harvested only briefly each year). It got me curious.
I bought some on a whim, and if it isn't the most floral, earthy honey I've ever tasted ...
Now I'm eager to explore as many kinds of honey as I can get my hands on (I'm also trying to convince Patrick that he'd make an excellent beekeeper).
