Local Honey

I just got to thinking that I should probably make a post about which honey I use.  I add it to a lot of recipes and it's local, so I will give them some credit too.  You know how eating local honey (I think they recommend 1 t. a day) can help with allergies.  Well, I've been trying that for a while now.  It does for the most part seem to be helping too.  Plus, I get to help support a local bee keeper and their yummy honey!

Ok, so it is called "Copoco's Honey" and it's in North Fort Collins.  They actually have a cute "hive" outside that they do some teaching in.  Adorable I know.  :)  They've only had this store for about a year, but they've been keeping bees for some years I guess.  They were super friendly and helpful too.  (Alway a plus in my book of course!)

Did you know that there are actually a lot of different varieties of honey?  To me it's a lot like beer.  Not in taste of course, but with the variety.  The lighter ones are less pungent and the darker ones are richer in flavor--more robust you could say.  Then some of theirs are pollenated differently and from different types of sources.  Check out their site for more info.

Personally I think I like this one the best.  It's better than just your garden variety you'll find at the store, but still not too strong.  :)  Happy tasting...
