A note on local honey

If you can find local honey, use it in this homemade hot honey recipe! Local honey is incredibly tasty and supports local businesses. Also, since local honey contains a blend of local pollen, it can strengthen your immune system and reduce pollen allergy symptoms. We buy our local honey at our farmers market; often local honey vendors can be found in your local grocery stores as well.

Also, don’t forget to support your local pollinators! One of the best ways to help bees is to plant flowers. Bees love sunflowers and bolted herbs (herbs that have flowered) like basil and chives. Make sure your seeds are non-GMO and not treated with any pesticides or chemicals.

This hot honey recipe is…

Vegetarian, gluten-free, dairy-free, and plant-based.
