We first started writing this blog under the cover of relative obscurity,  (before we became really big bitches- at least that’s what they say about us now), we wrote about experimenting with rough raw stuff.  We were addicted  pouring big money into our habit, we tried everything we could get our hands on. Some of the stuff was nasty, dirty looking, foul tasting–sure to make us ill. Some of the stuff was so refined and processed we felt nothing. Then we found perfection. It was as though Smokey the Bear married Marshmallow Fluff.


We forgot to mention we’re talking about honey.  Raw honey.  For those of you who missed our earlier ranting and raving on the pleasure of yummy raw honey we thought we’d share our earlier post hoping that you’ll share with us your favorite honey variety. Enjoy!

You know our obsession with finding the little things that make a bitch happy. That spoonful of sugar…well, not sugar anymore if we can help it. These days we’re all about honey. No, we’re not members of the healthy food police, but we do like to eat as well as we can. For example, when given the choice we take brown over white rice and wheat over white bread. Organic over non-organic. Unprocessed over processed. And honey over sugar in all the right places: in our tea, spread on toasted Eli’s health loaf, baked into our favorite ancho chili blue corn bread recipe (we’ll share, we promise). We’ve been experimenting with raw honey. Interesting. We’ve tried it all. We’ve explored the gamut of  ‘raw’ honey—from the kind with a faintly feral hive odor and bits of bees in it (at least we thought we came upon wings and stingers) to a very pricey, waxy, raw clover blend with a bland odorless flavor. We’ve worked hard to find you the world’s best most delicious honey…and in our search we discovered something divine. It’s a lovely blend of that classic Smokey the Bear-container honey, fragrant wildflowers, and marshmallow fluff. 365 Organics Wildflower Raw Honey from Whole Foods is the one we love!

Yet another update:

After we wrote and re-wrote, published and re-published this post, we received in the mail a gift  of raw honey from Mohawk Valley Trading Company. Three yummy jars worth. (Come to think of it, it’s the only thing we’ve ever received  in return for all this writing). Anyway, since we’re fickle and not necessarily monogamous bitches — at least when it comes to our food affairs–we loved their RAW Maine Wild Blueberry Blossom Honey.  Check it out.

Tell us about your favorite raw honey and where you buy it.
