Kutik's Honey

...a truck moving bee boxes to pollinate a field somewhere...

My review of local products continue with a mention of Kutik's honey.  I am particularly fond of their orange blossom honey.  No, it is not "local" - in the sense that the orange groves the bees pollinate are south - far from NYS - but the honey is really good - and I am supporting a local company.  Their prices are reasonable, especially if you buy in bulk.

Something to consider when purchasing from the lil guy/ small business - is to ask for their price break or wholesale price and the minimum quantity to achieve that price point.  Than get a bunch of friends and coworkers to buy in to get that price.

More on that later...
Their orange blossom honey reminds me of the Greek honey I used to buy in NYC.

The bees in Greece are sometimes made to pollinate only thyme blossoms and by doing so create this thick perfumed honey - tastes perfect with Greek yogurt, honey cakes, and lots of other sweet treats!
