It’s just a small recipe. A suggestion. So easy it will knock your socks off! This week, I had the pleasure of chatting with Kenneth Cook from Cook’s honey at the farmers Market. He talked of turkeys on his property and Bears knocking over his bee boxes. I just love to meet the folks who make the food I eat and share with my family. It ignites me! He directed me to some amazing honey comb and a jar of his special honey (that can also be found in grocery stores all over the city). After to listening to his stories and tasting the honey, I decided to let the honey “shine” and make a simple compound butter using a fresh bunch of thyme (from from Gallatin Vally Botanicals) and organic grass fed salted Irish butter. Spread it on toast, spread it on some baked sweet potatoes, roasted carrots, pancakes or spread it on a baguette with a good french brie! Just bathe in it! It’s a magical thing!
