From zambezihoney.com, this 1# jar of honey cost $9.95. It’s amazing honey, rich and sweet but not cloying, with an almost smoky taste and fruity finish. It’s organic, raw and naturally created in a sustainable method, derived from a specific honeybee found along the Zambia river that feeds exclusively on the nectar of flowering trees. A few clicks of the mouse and it was at my doorstep. I don’t know if it’s sold at stores in the USA. It is way better than any honey I have ever tasted. This is what honey should taste like.
The Fruit Crisps are another product available on the ‘net (crispygreen.com), and again, I am not sure if they are in stores anywhere. I would guess natural food/co-ops etc. would be the place to look. It is all natural, freeze dried fruit that retains all it’s nutritional value. It comes in a 6-pack at $7.99, each individual pouch has about 1 cup worth of fruit in it, 35 calories per individual pouch and no fat. I bought a six-pack of peaches and apples, and was sent a sample of pineapple and apricot free of charge! Bonus! They are crisp little pieces and flavor-wise it’s a great treat. The apple were very light in flavor, similar to what we have dried in our dehydrator. I thought the apricot were somewhat tangy, Mike said they had the taste of sulphur in them but I didn’t get that when I ate them. The peach and pineapple were my favorites; the peach were fantastic, way better than the traditionally dried pieces I have bought. Light and very peach-y. The pineapple were excellent, really really flavorful and they still gave me that kind of tingly feeling in the mouth that fresh pineapple does, the chemical bromelain in the pineapple is what causes that- a natural sedative, sort of. (And something good as a natural defense against mouth pain from dental work. So next time you’re getting a cavity filled, tooth pulled or some other work, eat pineapple or drink the juice before and after. Trust me, from experience I know) OK, enough of that! The texture of the fruit was really interesting; crispy and light, you could hold it in your mouth and it simply collapses, somewhat like popcorn does. This is a great snack, a good, healthy alternative.
