For the past three years, my family and some close friends have become beekeepers. Each season brings a new harvest of beautiful and tasty honey. This spring, the color of the honey was a translucent gold, but in the fall we have palm honey. Palm honey is molasses in color and tastes like brown sugar. The difference between the two harvests (pictured above) is almost shocking (we live for the little things). Over these years the hives have grown, split and produced more honey than we can sometimes giveaway, but we are happy with it being a hobby for now. Who knows maybe we will be able to sell it at the local farmer’s market in the years to come? Jacksonville Beach Honey. Forget the Tupelo variety, this is liquid gold.
