This stuff is so good, there’s probably a law against it somewhere

Last year I mentioned Killer Bees Honey, a small business started by Sean C., a long-term online acquaintance.

I’ve just received my latest order of their products.  I’m sitting at my desk, eating Sourwood Amber honey on sourdough bread, trying to keep from dripping honey on the keyboard as I type these words.  Ohhhh, man, this is good – and seriously addictive!

Reading Sean’s blog, and looking at the pictures on Killer Bees Honey’s Web site, I note that he seems to have a lot more hives now.  He’s also teamed up with another apiary nearby, so he’ll soon have a lot more honey to send to deserving causes like Miss D. and I.  We’d better start budgeting accordingly!

If you like really, really good natural honey, unfiltered, unprocessed and unpasteurized, I can’t recommend Sean too highly.  I’m a repeat customer, and expect to remain one.  You can read more about it at my previous post.  (No, Sean didn’t ask me to advertise his wares, and he’s not paying me to do so, and I don’t get any freebies from him in return for mentioning them on this blog.  I do so because it’s the best honey I’ve tasted in many years, and I think it deserves a wider audience.  Besides, I like to share good news with my readers and friends.)

Now, if you’ll excuse me, there’s another piece of sourdough bread crying out to be slathered with honey.  See ya!



  1. I _love_ honey. Luckily I not only live in a major honey producing state, but my father-in-law is a pastor at a rural church that is attended by many farmers who have hives on their land. I get about two quarts each year for free through the people at the church. It stores forever. There's nothing quite like pure, unadulterated honey.

  2. My wife has brought peach honey home from Texas a couple of times. Oh man! There's just a faint after taste of peaches. Hot toasted homemade bread slathered with butter and this honey and you're lucky if you're not committing five of the seven deadly sins.

  3. I'm telling myself that it's perfectly fine to have English muffins toasted, dripping with melted butter and this honey, as long I mow the lawn afterwards. Yeah, that'll work off all the carbs and make this guilt free…

    1. Honey turns anything you eat it with (through the power of "Science!!"[TM]) into the caloric, nutritional equivalent of water. It's true. …in my imagination. *sorrowful sigh*

  4. I've bought two types from them and the Sourwood Amber is my favorite. Against orange blossom or clover, or just about any grocery shelf honey that Amber is a powerhouse of taste.

  5. Manuka honey was really my thing: cleans the crud out of your throat and some of the bugs out of your gut, and it tastes really good.

    Now I'm stuck with the little jars from Tiptree because I have a tendency to use too much relative to what I'm supposed to have.

    Your friend's advertising is considerably better though. 🙂

  6. ezestreets:
    There's a honey shop in St. Lawrence Market in Toronto run by a Russian guy who deals with imported honey — if there's enough demand or you can arrange for a full case order, he might be able to get it through Canadian customs for you.

    Otherwise, Canadian customs will probably seize it, which is why he won't ship there directly.

  7. I should send you a jar of the stuff I buy from a place off the road in central FL. Guy has a sign on the road; you drive a 100 feet or so off the road; there's a table with jars and a box; you put $20 in the box and get a quart of honey from the hives next to his house. Not clover or orange blossom; it's whatever the bees find in the woods behind the house. He also has 6-inch squares of honey-comb. Stuff does not taste like anything you'd find in the grocery store. Like the difference between store-bought maple syrup and getting it at a farm in western New York.

  8. A friend of the family has hives, and fruit trees. And occasionally shares. Very occasionally. It's worth waiting for. And then there's thyme honey from Greece. *happy sigh*
