At first you might not think that honey can be considered a food adventure.
Yes, I've had honey.
In fact, I love honey.
It wasn't until I met this man that I realize I've never really tasted honey before.
The Bennett's Honey Farm has lots of different kinds of honey.
People pay them to bring out their bees and have them pollenate the crops.
The result is honey from a variety of different crops with a variety of different flavors.
They were kind enough to take me through a tasting of the different kinds of honey.
First off, you can see the difference in the honey colors, from the darkness of the Eucalyptus to the light cactus honey that looks as it's been whipped (it hasn't) and all the shades in between.
Tasting them next to each other, with the guidance of the honey expert I was really able to taste the differences in flavors. The creaminess of avocado honey, the really full-flavored buckwheat, the mild sage honey, the slightly floral flavor of the orange.
I think I'm becoming a bit of a honey snob.
Adding to my love for their honey is the fact that the honey farm is 100% solar powered and all of their honey is raw and unfiltered preserving it's natural goodness. The less processing the better.
