This past weekend, urban farmer/longtime-friend Martina Fugazzotto invited me to her house in Brooklyn, to photograph a little honey-tasting session she was hosting. Brooklyn beekeeper Tim O’Neal brought over numerous types of honey that he himself had harvested, in addition to honey that his family had harvested back in his native Ohio. As a result of the bees drinking nectar from a variety of different flowers, each type of honey had its own distinctive flavor. There was Orange Blossom honey, Buckwheat honey, Goldenrod honey, and many more. Not only did we get to try interesting honey flavors, but Tim also made some drinks for us containing honey, lime and tequila. He also provided us with quite a beeducation (Like that? I didn’t come up with it, Martina did, so give her a high five.)
Here are some photos from our honey fiesta:
Martina and Tim will also be writing blog posts about our honey-tasting. Keep your eyes out for those posts, for complete details about the various types of honey and some interesting bee facts.
