Watching a bee doing its pollination dance in a friend’s azaleas recently, I was once again reminded of the miracle of how honey is made from flowers, nectar and the hard work of little buzzing creatures.
I bought some organically grown honey recently at the local Galveston Organic Farmers Market, which is every Sunday morning from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. at 2508 Post Office St. This was my reintroduction to the taste and joy of really good honey. “Pure Beeing” honey sold there is dark, delicious and a perfect accompaniment to espresso, cooking or baking. I drizzle it generously on wild-caught Northwestern Pacific salmon, along with seasonings of dill, lemon pepper and a finish of goat cheese after grilling. Yum!
