The Honey Thread

Health insurance rip off lying FDA big bankers buying
Fake computer crashes dining
Cloning while they're multiplying
Fashion shoots with Beck and Hanson
Courtney Love, and Marilyn Manson
You're all fakes
Run to your mansions
Come around
We'll kick your ass in

I love honey, and I don't think we have a thread dedicated to this elixir of goodness.

What type of honey do you like, is it runny or set, dark or light?

How do you consume your honey? do you like mead?

Talk about it here.

I know a couple of bee keepers and it’s cool when they get onto a bee keeping discussion

I am worried about the bees. If I wanted to do something I guess I could ask a property owner if I can put a hive on their land

I got some great dark, thick honey from a local beekeeper a couple weeks ago. He said it came from a nearby Buddhist temple, and then regaled me with tales of beekeeping. Now I'm thinking about taking a beekeeping course next summer.

Winchester, UK. The monastery is in Chithurst. Google says it's a "Theravada Buddhist Monastery in the Thai Forest Tradition", which sounds pretty awesome.

Though it's not so much a temple as an English country house where some buddhist monks live.

my father in law kept bees until very recently and would send us all kinds of honey, very cool. I mostly use it in coffee

I'd love to keep bees if I had a larger property

I only really have honey in tea, so I rarely keep any on hand, and its usually the cheap kind.

Yes, most nice honeys here are various eucalypt based with "river red gum", being very popular but my favourite is probably from the dividing range where the inflorescences our little furry winged friends feast on are a mixture of Alpine Ash, red box, tereticornis, snow gums and various wattles
plus all the various forest floor stuff

bees get around

I bought a jar of this local honey from a farm outside of Vancouver. It's raw honey and made with a mix of few different honeys and the owner gave me a really detailed spiel about why it's good for you and better than store-bought honey, but ultimately I bought it because it looks amazing and tastes amazing. I put a half teaspoon in my yogurt every morning and I like to think it makes my body better than it was before I started doing that.

Here's a picture of what the jar looks like:

Yeah, I'm Canadian but have been in the UK for quite a while. I think the only hipinion thread I've made was to complain about estate agencies. You're in London?

Mostly I buy the cheapest Sainsbury's honey. That buddhist honey was like £8 for a jar.

yeah, good honey is extremely expensive compared to the cheap stuff from the supermarket. I don't mind the cheap stuff for drinks and such.
