Colorado Wildflower - Honey of the Week
5 April, 2019
My best honey for wounds, sore throats and infections is Colorado Wildflower due to its heavy concentration of propolis. Bees gather resin from budding coniferous and deciduous trees to line the hive with an antiseptic called propolis. During the summer of 2013, my favorite bees were resting in southern Colorado after pollinating crops up the Rio Grande valley. They harvested an abundance of green propolis and coated the comb with so much resin that it overwhelmed the honey flavor and color. At that point, we set aside a portion to archive and age for its medicinal value above others. This honey belongs in the medicine cabinet and should be used sparingly. It is a very dark honey with a coarse grainy texture and a sweet waxy taste.
Honey by the Case
1 April, 2019
Now is a great time to stock your pantry for the summer. We currently have a great selection of Raw Local Arizona Honey available by the jar or by the case. A case of large quart jars is equal to 3 gallons of honey. A case of regular table jars is equal to 1 gallon of honey. Mix or match: Alfalfa, Mesquite, Catclaw Acacia, Cactus Blossom, Ambrosia-Desert Wildflower. Order in advance or drop by the market and see what's in stock.
Ambrosia Dumosa - Honey of the Week
22 March, 2019
Desert Wildflower, or Ambrosia Dumosa is a shrub native to the southwestern US. It's sometimes known as burro-weed or bur sage, grows around creosote, and blooms yellow flowers. This particular honey contains a high amount of desert rag weed pollen. Ambrosia is a light-bodied, light-amber colored honey. Its flavor is fresh and robust with a hint of nuttiness.
How long can I store fish in the freezer?
21 March, 2019
Your freezer will determine the shelf-life of your fish. The precious omega-3 oils in salmon must be held at consistently cold temperatures to maintain quality. We suggest a dedicated deep freezer, a chest freezer if space allows. We also recommend having a fridge/freezer thermometer so you know precisely the range of your freezer. 0 degrees F will hold your fish about 6 months (typical of fridge/freezer combos), -10 degrees F will hold your fish for about 1 year and -20 degrees F will keep your fish in great shape 2 years or more.
