Bottling the first honey harvest of 2011
I bottled the first honey crop of 2011 into charming glass half-pound jars. If you’ve contacted me about buying honey, you can expect an email from me with prices and logistics in the next few days.
Liquid sunlight, liquid gold - my father requested a jar to serve to his congregation on Shabbas, and it was a pleasure to give them the freshest, most locavore honey they’re ever likely to taste, harvested from the hive on the roof above their heads just a few days earlier.
This is what springtime Brooklyn tastes like.
What an absolute wonderment!
(I keep my bees at my parents' shul, so of course my father stopped by to have me pose for a few photos. Photo credit to him.)
