{Aloha Friday} Hawaiian Honey

6.29.2012

I came home with some delicious local Hawaiian honey (wai meli) that I purchased from a beekeeper at a farmer's market in Waikiki. The beekeeper brought part of a beehive and bees with him. Cool! I also got to taste the different flavors of honey that were offered. Yummy! The bees produce different flavors according to the nectar of the different flowers they frequent. Isn't that fascinating! You can read about it on the Nalo Meli website, which in Hawaiian means: Honey bee.

The flavor that I chose was: 'Ohi'a Lehua. It's a flower from the 'ohi'a tree (Metrosideros polymorpha). So buttery and smooth, I'm spreading it over gluten-free toast with raw organic pumpkin seeds for breakfast.

Hi there! Photography and art featured on this blog, unless where noted, came from my camera and were made or styled by my hands. You may not use my photos for profit or on commercial websites, but we might be able to work something out with a dozen chocolate macarons, and a juicy deal. Do not remove my watermarks or copyright markings from my photos (please see previous sentence). I won't bite, well unless you infringe on my copyright. But really, send me an email, I'm pretty nice. The snail mail on my blog includes my mail or the work from other artists and pen friends. I do my best to give everyone credit. But, in the case where I have missed the proper credit please contact me to address it. If you would like to re-blog or pin any of my original works please be the awesome person that you are and give me a shout out a.k.a. proper credit, and link it back here. Speaking of links, I do on occasion link out to other sites, however I am not responsible for the content you find on those sites. Sometimes clicking on a link I’ve provided may be a link to a site that will give me a small commission if you buy something from them. Which means that I might get paid (hopefully not in gum) if you click on that link, whoo-hoo. Reason why I’m telling you is because I want to be honest with you and frankly, because it’s illegal not to.
