Colorado Wildflower - Honey of the Week
5 April, 2019
My best honey for wounds, sore throats and infections is Colorado Wildflower due to its heavy concentration of propolis. Bees gather resin from budding coniferous and deciduous trees to line the hive with an antiseptic called propolis. During the summer of 2013, my favorite bees were resting in southern Colorado after pollinating crops up the Rio Grande valley. They harvested an abundance of green propolis and coated the comb with so much resin that it overwhelmed the honey flavor and color. At that point, we set aside a portion to archive and age for its medicinal value above others. This honey belongs in the medicine cabinet and should be used sparingly. It is a very dark honey with a coarse grainy texture and a sweet waxy taste.
Honey by the Case
1 April, 2019
Now is a great time to stock your pantry for the summer. We currently have a great selection of Raw Local Arizona Honey available by the jar or by the case. A case of large quart jars is equal to 3 gallons of honey. A case of regular table jars is equal to 1 gallon of honey. Mix or match: Alfalfa, Mesquite, Catclaw Acacia, Cactus Blossom, Ambrosia-Desert Wildflower. Order in advance or drop by the market and see what's in stock.
Ambrosia Dumosa - Honey of the Week
22 March, 2019
Desert Wildflower, or Ambrosia Dumosa is a shrub native to the southwestern US. It's sometimes known as burro-weed or bur sage, grows around creosote, and blooms yellow flowers. This particular honey contains a high amount of desert rag weed pollen. Ambrosia is a light-bodied, light-amber colored honey. Its flavor is fresh and robust with a hint of nuttiness.
How long can I store fish in the freezer?
21 March, 2019
Your freezer will determine the shelf-life of your fish. The precious omega-3 oils in salmon must be held at consistently cold temperatures to maintain quality. We suggest a dedicated deep freezer, a chest freezer if space allows. We also recommend having a fridge/freezer thermometer so you know precisely the range of your freezer. 0 degrees F will hold your fish about 6 months (typical of fridge/freezer combos), -10 degrees F will hold your fish for about 1 year and -20 degrees F will keep your fish in great shape 2 years or more.
Alfalfa - Honey of the Week
27 February, 2019
We have an abundance and variety of Arizona Honey. My favorite table honey is Alfalfa Blossom. I like to start my day with a scoop of honey off the spoon or in my tea and I take a couple of spoonfuls again at bedtime for more restful sleep. Alfalfa honey is heavy-bodied, amber-red in color (here in the southwestern US), and has a rich classic flavor without being overtly sweet. It reminds most people of their childhood no matter where they're from. Alfalfa is pollinated by naturalized honey bees and various species of native bees. Alfalfa honey is rich in minerals, vitamins and antioxidants and is a better sweetener in diabetic diets than sugar and other non-nutritive sweeteners. Raw Alfalfa honey has been known to be helpful for seasonal allergies. Come see us and sample all of our great USA honey sources! Tons of Arizona local, lots of regional. For us, raw is more important than local and we love having a variety. We're bringing about 10-12 varieties of raw honey to the markets, about half are from AZ. You may be interested in one of our upcoming honey & mead tastings or schedule your own for you and a group of like-minded friends. At home, we offer about 22-24 varieties of raw honey, mostly from the western US, including a few from mid-west to east coast. Whether you need honey by the jar, case(s), pail or barrel...let us know how we can help you. **We ship throughout the USA**
