The Avondale Group Harvested Their Honey this Month

Lauren, Grandma and Lynn obtained an honey extractor and spent one Saturday morning harvesting their first load of honey.  You have to let the honey sit for 12-24 hours to let the air bubble rise, so it wasn’t until the following morning that we were able to bottle it. We thought we’d be lucky to get 1-2 bottles, but, to our surprise, we got a little over 1 1/2 gallons. It has a very different consistency and taste than honey I have had from the store – very much worth the effort. It was also so much fun giving some of the honey away.  It was a sticky enterprise and am still finding honey on chairs and the floor in my basement.

FYI, a great appetizer is a piece of brie for chevre cheese with homemade hone poured on top and then sprinkled with toasted and crushed almonds. Also am putting honey on my toast every morning. A great recommendation from Lauren.

  1. Is it possible that we may find random bottles of honey in our mailboxes in the next few weeks (hint, hint!)
    Perhaps we should have a page of this website that has everyones “honey mailing address” on it!!!
