A friend driving through town from Oregon stopped by for the night a few weeks back. Just before leaving, she pulled from her car a golden jar of raw, locally raised honey and my heart skipped a beat. Honey, nature’s natural sweetener, is beautiful. It lends mild, earthy sweetness to just about everything from entrees to desserts, and is even the sweetener of choice for sugar-avoiding Paleo eaters. It’s no wonder why. Honey is filled with nutrients and flavor, a win-win for anyone looking to make every bite worthwhile.
