  • SWALLOWED EMOTION LOOSE LEAF TEA

    Have you ever struggled with things you would like to say but can’t, in a job or family situation, perhaps? These pent-up feelings or swallowed emotions can cause a particular kind of stress on the nervous system. It can be difficult to relieve the strain without a little help, which is just what this tea is designed to do. Swallowed Emotion loose-leaf tea includes oat tops, catnip, and rose petals to help prevent the need to blow up or choke on your own frustration+. Enjoy this tea blend for a bit of peace; it isn’t good to keep it all in!

    How to Use:
    Each container of Mockingbird Meadows’ loose-leaf tea comes with a reusable muslin tea bag, so you don’t need to worry about finding or buying a strainer. To make one cup of tea, add 2 to 3 teaspoons of loose-leaf tea to the muslin strainer, and submerge the tea bag in hot water for 10 to 15 minutes, covered. Remove the tea bag, and enjoy. To make 1 quart of tea, add 3 to 4 tablespoons of loose-leaf tea to the muslin bag and submerge in 1 quart of hot water. Steep, covered, for 10 to 15 minutes. Make your herbs last even longer by re-steeping each bag a few times before composting the spent material and then rinsing your muslin bag.

Back in the early 1900s, my great Aunt Mary lived on a farm with her husband Henry and their many critters. Her favorite cow was her Jersey named Sweet Marabelle that produced the most cream of any of their 4 other dairy girls. Mary churned all that cream into the best butter around that area. But, with so much butter to trade and give away to family and friends, she had Henry make her a mold that would press out block after block "swift as the wind" as Aunt Mary used to say. That's when Henry nicknamed her Sweet Mary! Although Sweet Mary and her butter mold are gone, the memories remain!

  • THE HONEY CONNOISSEUR

    From honey experts C. Marina Marchese and Kim Flottum comes this comprehensive introduction to the origin, flavor, and culinary uses of more than 30 varietals of honey, from ubiquitous clover to tangy star thistle to rich, smoky buckwheat.

    Like wine, cheese, coffee and chocolate, honey has emerged as an artisanal obsession. Its popularity at farmers markets and specialty food stores has soared as retailers capitalize on the trend. The Honey Connoisseur teaches consumers everything they need to know about how to taste, select and use a diverse selection of honey.

    After a brief explanation of how bees produce honey, the authors introduce the concept of terroir, the notion that soil, weather and other natural phenomena can affect the taste of honey. As with wines, knowing the terroir of a honey varietal helps to inform an understanding of its flavor.

    The book goes on to give a thorough course in the origins of more than 30 different honeys as well as step-by-step instructions on how to taste honey, describe its flavor and determine what other flavors will pair best with it. Also included are simple recipes such as dressings, marinades, beverages and quick-and-easy desserts.

    Beautifully illustrated and designed, The Honey Connoisseur is the perfect book for foodies and locavores alike.
