Honey has seasons, too. It’s spring: the flowers are budding, the birds are singing, the bees are buzzing, and the honey is overflowing with floral deliciousness. Really, it’s brazen, in-your-face floral. We fold it into ice cream and it’s almost a tea-like steeping effect–a beautiful bloom of honey ice cream. Crumbles of lemony ricotta walnut lace cookies add a little bit of zest and snap and nuttiness to the experience. We love Bee Local honey because it tastes like everything delicious in Oregon. Bee Local does a ton of education, community support, and direct trade, and they harvest their honey just south of Portland near the wine vineyards.
