Things are buzzing around here like crazy in this fabulous new year. And this spring they’ll really be buzzing, literally. My husband surprised me with a bee hive for Christmas. So, come April I’ll have my very own little busy friends churning out the sweet stuff, delicious honey.
Other than my husband using a little in his tea daily, and me in the occasional recipe, I don’t use a ton of honey on a regular basis. But from what I hear, that needs to change. Those bees really do get busy. One hive can produce up to 20-30 pounds of extra honey for us to use. And we’re planning on having two hives. That’s a lot of honey.
Guess what everyone will be getting for Christmas next year?
And Valentines Day.
You can bet I’ll be bookmarking recipes using honey left and right over the next few months.
It’s good to know with all of that cooking with honey I can grab a can of PAM Cooking Spray to help make the measuring and pouring of the honey go a lot smoother. As many of you already know, it’s so helpful when measuring sticky liquids, like corn syrup and honey. Just spray the measuring cup before measuring and the syrup or honey will glide right out. Nifty. PAM Cooking Spray is good for lots of things.
You may remember that PAM Cooking Spray is having a PAM Top Tips contest right now. If not, let me fill ya in…
