Honey, can we talk? I'm betting I'm not the only allergy sufferer who is a tea drinker. Now spring allergies don't bother me a bit anymore, and I can practically bathe in yellow pollen and won't sneeze a bit. Fall is another story, and so I'm trying adding local honey to my tea.
I'd been meaning, for years now, to get some from the Exners, local beekeepers known for their great honey. I had gone to visit my friend Liz at her store in Senoia, Cydney's Alley, and as I sat there and blabbed with her, I was quite drowsy from the allergy tablets I'd taken. It so happened that a couple of customers came in and started asking about the honey she had on display. "Honey? You have honey? Where from?" Yep, it was from the Exners, so I took that as a definite sign I was supposed to leave with some! I don't usually sweeten my tea, so I added just about a teaspoonful. It made my Whittard's Breakfast Earl Grey taste even better than usual, but I wondered if that is enough to see "benefits." So if any of you are allergy-afflicted and sipping and/or eating honey from your area, I would welcome your advice.
Of course while I was at Liz's shop I had to browse the antiques. I saw this wonderful old aqua blue Avon glass jar, and naturally I decided I needed it for ...
... The Beach Cottage. Another advantage I see to life at the beach? No ragweed!
