Mohawk Valley Trading Co. Raw Honey

I want to apologize that there isn't a picture of the Raw Buckwheat Honey.  I took pictures but they disappeared off my camera and by the time I realized it the Raw Buckwheat Honey was already gone.
There is a reason honey was used to make the infamous "Nectar of the Gods" (Mead).  Not only is it delicious, honey is a miracle food that has many health benefits.  One of the health benefits I am in love with is that it works better than OTC cough syrups.  I have never been big on administering medications to my family, especially my children because there are so many natural methods for many ailments that do not have the side effects or artificial ingredients that man-made medications have. 

Medical News Today posted an interesting article about honey versus cough syrup,

"If a child has a cough and cold a single dose of buckwheat just before bedtime may relieve the cough and help him/her sleep better, compared to giving nothing or an OTC (over-the-counter) cough medicine, according to an article in Archives of Pediatrics & Adolescent Medicine (JAMA/Archives), December issue." (http://www.medicalnewstoday.com/articles/90536.php).  The article is very informative and a must read.  Here are a few more articles that may be of interest:

Dark Honey Has More Illness-Fighting Agents Than Light Honey

Okay so now that you have seen one very big way that honey has health benefits lets get down to the fun stuff.  The taste!  Mohawk Valley Trading Co. has the tastiest raw honey on the market.  Not only is it tasty they have a variety of different honeys that are all wonderful.  

We got the  Raw Buckwheat Honey, Raw Summer Wildflower Honey, Raw Tulip Poplar-Black Locust Honey, and a section of honey comb.  They were SO good.  I loved that each honey had its own flavor profile so they were great for use in different things.

Munchkin 2's Honey Creation.
The Banana and Honey Hotdog 
The Munchkins are obsessed with peanut butter sandwiches whether they are with jelly, honey, or banana but since we got the honey they have only been  requesting peanut butter and honey sandwiches.  They haven't even let me open the jar of jelly yet!  

Munchkin 2 even made up a new lunch/snack food!  One day she wanted a  hot dog, peanut butter and honey sandwich, and a banana for snack and I told her she could not have all of that for snack so we compromised with the New Banana & Honey Hot dog!  Just a hot dog bun, half a banana, and honey smeared on.  Both Munchkins devoured it!

I would say that is a win for this honey and it is probably safe to say that they definitely prefer Mohawk Valley Trading Co. Raw Honey to the store bought honey I usually get.  Their favorite is the Raw Summer Wildflower Honey.

I also made one of my family's favorite meals with the honey, Ham Crescent Rolls.  They turned out terrific.  They are super easy to make and ubber delicious!  Check out the recipe.
