Taste the Local Difference: Four Food Finds for April

For April’s Four Food Finds with Tricia Phelps with Taste the Local Difference we talk about everything from local honey to Bee Well Meadery and even what’s in season.  Here is the complete list from Taste the Local Difference:

What’s In Season: Honey

Honey is a complicated natural product. Put almost too simply, it is made from the nectar that bees collect from their environment. Because of this, there are over 300 different types of honey, which all vary in flavor and composition. Blog Post here.

Hilbert’s Honey is a great local option!

Try This! Bee Well Meadery, Ginger Peach Mead

Mead is a beverage created by fermenting honey with water, often with various fruits, spices, grains, and sometimes hops. Bee Well Meadery is located in Bellaire and Ginger Peach Mead is one of their flagships. You can get it on tap or in a four pack of cans. Find out more here
