The Stories

Spotlight Maker: Phoenicia Honey Co.

LAUREN MUSACCHIO

I've had a honey obsession before I could walk. Dessert time? Give me honey. It's almost funny that today of all days when I had plans of featuring the Phoenicia Honey Co, I got my very first bee sting. I thought I was a tough cookie until today. Today I proved myself wrong. I cried like a baby. Now I sit back with an elevated foot, with the old natural remedy of honey applied to a bee sting while drinking a nice cool white wine. It could be worse, I suppose.

Back to the agenda... the Phoenicia Honey Co. literally has some of the sweetest, most delicious honeys I've tasted. I found a jar at my favorite tea shop in Andes, NY. Based out of Phoenicia, the honey is crafted in small batches by founder, Elissa Jane Mastel. My heart goes straight to the Lavender flavored honey. What's your favorite flavor?
