Growing up, we used to visit my Grandpa or “Papa” who lived in Michigan. He lived on the lake and also raised bees. We would swim in the cold water, ride my mother’s old horse Sugarfoot and drive by his multiple bee hives. I can remember watching him tend to his bees in his full “beekeeper’s suit.” His honey was the best, because it was fresh and we could see the honeycomb inside the jar of honey!
I have always liked honey, but as a mom and the main honey eater in the house, I rarely buy it. My honey always crystallizes on me and I end up throwing it away. It seems like a waste for me to buy a jar of honey for myself when it is going to go bad since I don’t use it quick enough.
Lately I have been asking readers a few questions so I can get to know everyone and someone suggested that I do a Tropical Traditions Organic Honey giveaway and here it is! I have been reviewing the organic honey and love it! I find myself searching for it every morning to use on toast. I REALLY like it on warm tortillas, but my diet says I should use toast, while my belly says “Bring out the Tortillas!”
This review was an eye opener on organic products for me! I have just now started trying organic products and when I received this honey, I didn’t know how I was going to scoop it out of the jar! This sounds silly, but….. it was in solid form and like nothing I had ever seen before. I called Tropical Traditions and was told that the organic honey needed to be brought down to room temperature since it could’ve been very cold throughout shipping. They told me to fill a bowl with warm water and let the honey sit in the warm water for awhile. They also told me to do this a few times and the honey would eventually have a consistency close to that of butter.
Once I got the honey to the proper temperature, I started using it…….multiple times a day! I love it. It is not messy since it doesn’t run like normal honey and it gets better with age, instead of expiring on me! One thing, make sure your kids try it before they see it. My boys are particular and when they saw it was hard and white, they didn’t want anything to do with it. So, it’s just me and my honey again, but at least it won’t go bad! Tropical Traditions has made an organic honey lover out of me. Last night something fell out of the pantry and I was upset thinking I had lost my new jar of organic honey. Thankfully it was just my light pancake syrup, but the lid broke off and syrup was everywhere, including all over my husband’s legs and feet!
