Honey Ginger Pear Butter
This is a quick and easy probiotic soda that is perfect for warding of colds. You can make it with fresh elderberries, or use dried.
Elderberry mead is a great drink: delicious and nutritious, and cures what ails ya! Great choice for when you feel yourself coming down with a cold and need some rest.
Raw honey infused with cocoa, ginger, cinnamon, and cayenne for a delicious treat for ice cream, cake, or just right out of the jar! Make small jars to give as gifts for special occasions.
A traditional chinese honey kohlrabi pickle!
The whole fruit's in here, for a wallop of fresh grapefruit flavor. Think grapefruit-honey candy on a spoon.
If you like whiskey, honey and SPICY peppers... this is for you! Make Habanero Honey Whiskey. I dare you.
Juicy pears are steeped with chai spices then cooked down into a rich, decadent fruit butter. A flexible recipe that can be tucked away in the refrigerator or water bath canned.
Mustard is so easy to make and easily customizable. If you have a ton of extra Fire Cider like me, this is a wonderful way to use it. If not, apple cider vinegar can be used instead. Sweet and spicy!
Plums do the fruit butter thing so well. This one is dressed for the holidays with orange zest, cardamom, vanilla, and bay.
