My friend Maria, from whom I purchase honey, has bees, and her hives serve the citrus and plum plantations in the valley 25 minutes downslope of me. Which means that the honey I use is usually a blend of citrus and (in season) plum nectars.

Occasionally, my friend Dolores brings me honey; this is eucalyptus and acacia from the forests upslope of me. I prefer the citrus honey for baking, and the eucalyptus for sweetening drinks. When I am very lucky, my friend Alvaro brings me wild honey from the jungles, which is from combined tropical flowers. This is special reserve stock for sucking straight out of the combs.

Thank you Panaderia Canadiense! You are very fortunate to have such good friends and to live in such a beautiful country. I'll try to find citrus honey in my area. We can go to local places and see what it available. Thanks for steering me in the right direction.
