Oh Honey...Are We In LOVE!

Last night we had our
  Honey Cooking Class
 with the lovely Miss Becky from Schooner Farms!
We talked about the benefits of Raw Honey
and Bees....

....and we learned how to cook with Honey.

One of the first things she taught us, 
was how to make Honey Caramel!
She took 1 cup sugar and added
2/3 cup raw honey
and cooked them together over medium heat
stirring until the sugar was melted.

She let it cook, swirling the pan occasionally until it becomes foamy.
When the sugar starts to darken around the edges
 and slowly darkens to the center, stir the mixture
 until it is a deep butterscotch brown and remove from heat.

Immediately drizzle 1-1/2 cups heavy cream into the caramel
 (carefully because it is hot!)
and stir until completely dissolved. 
Add 4 tablespoons unsalted butter and a pinch of salt and stir well.
Let cool and enjoy!

Enjoy it on some homemade ice cream.....
(that she made with goats milk....oh my was this 
the most delicious thing we've tasted!)

Scoop some up and drizzle
as much of your honey caramel on
as you want....
you deserve it ~ you worked hard!

Believe us...
it won't last long!

"The only reason for making a buzzing-noise that I know of is because you're a bee...
The only reason for being a bee that I know of is making honey....
and the only reason for making honey is so I can eat it."
~ Winnie the Pooh in A.A. Milne's 'The House at Pooh Corner'

Well, it's Friday!
We're in Love with Honey...
ok...Honey Caramel to be exact!

What are you in love with today?!!
