He couldn't just use mason jars? The vendor at my farmer's market tried to switch to plastic, but so many people complained about it that he went back to the mason jars. When I have a few saved up, I take them back to him to wash and reuse.

I know, right? Maybe he couldn’t get enough of those either.

My current favorite website for honey and honey products is Honey Acres. I bought their varietal honey and chocolate covered honey patties.

So far I've tried the Buckwheat and Basswood honeys. Love both, which are very different from each other. Still have to eat the jars of orange blossom, wild flower and clover.

I've bought every flavor of the chocolate patties, too.

Beekeepers often ask homeowners if they can put their hives in their yards. They harvest the honey and give the homeowners some. The homeowners also get their plants pollinated as a bonus. Win Win!

I met a guy in WV that was a master beekeeper/honey guy. In his little shop he had all kinds of honey. One of the more unique and flavorful was poison ivy honey! He had all sorts- honeysuckle honey, sycamore honey- a whole shelf or two of different honey's. How he rendered each individual honey I have no idea but it was pretty cool.

A friend of our had several hives on our property until they died off a few years ago. There was a definite difference between the winter and summer honey, but both were delicious. I think we have one jar left. It was as local as you can get!
