Avocado Honey is BACK! our bees normally make our Tropical Fruit honey in late winter/early spring, when the lychee, longan, and avocado trees are all blooming. But every few years, when the lychee and longan trees don't bloom, the avocado blooms stand alone. In such a year (like this year), the bees make rich, delicious avocado honey, which reminds me of sweet molasses without any bitter overtones. Be sure to score some of this amazing honey this season, because we never know just how long it will be before they make it again.

Eggs are versatile, nutritious, and a great source of inexpensive quality protein - where else can you get a serving of quality protein (2 eggs) for less than $1.50?
