Honey Laundering

I recently came across this article by Wire. It's a brief summary on some of the dynamics involved in the Bee world.
 
 
Through my experiences at the Farmer's Market, I have witnessed a steady movement growing. People want to know where their food comes from. When profitability is involved ethics and consistency can be challenged. With new technologies we can better support those companies where are values a line.

No Bake Chocolate Cookies

dry ingredients:
5 cups rolled oats
8 tbsp. raw cocoa powder
3/4 tsp. Redmond Real Salt

wet ingredients:
1 cup White Lake Farm's Raw Honey
1 cup almond butter, room temperature
1 cup extra virgin coconut oil, melted
1 tbsp. vanilla

* use organic ingredients to make these cookies a truly healthy treat ;)






These healthy and energy packed cookies are a wonderful tradition for my mother and I.
Every week on Tuesdays we look forward to spending time together. We usually will have lunch, run some errands, or go shopping. But no matter what we do we always make time for our cookies.




I like to mix the dry ingredients together first, to create an even consistency.
Then add the wet ingredients on top.

Mixing this with your hands is ideal or if you have kids let them do it they'll love it!













These little mini muffin pans work great too!
Also creates an easy way to make each cookie the same size.



My mother and I usually double the recipe. Why not? They keep well in the fridge for weeks and are so great to have on hand when you're hungry or just craving something sweet.

Cayenne & Honey Limeade


 


 
This is my healthy all natural energy drink. I make this all the time, not only becauses it taste great it makes me feel great! When I'm feeling a little sluggish or under-the-weather this helps a lot.
I have been drinking this concocktion for a couple of years so I can handle a lot more heat then the average person. This recipe is easy to adjust... if you add to much cayenne just add more honey. If its too limey for you just add more water. Play with the proportions and make the recipe your own.
 


 
Cayenne & Honey Limeade
1 cup White Lake Farm's raw honey
1 cup freshly squeezed lime juice
3 tsp. cayenne pepper
filtered water slightly warmed
 

*distribute measured ingredients evenly between your containers. I like to use glass jars. Avoid using plastic because it may leach chemicals into your drink.

First squeeze limes and add honey,

Next slightly warm filtered water, then add to mixture.
*warming the water is not necessary it helps to dissolve honey. Take care not to heat water too much or it will kill all the nourishing enzymes in honey.

Lastly put lids on and shake shake shake.

 
 











Enjoy as a refreshing chilled limeade or slightly heated as a soothing tea.
