Drizzle honey over oats or into salad dressings. .

OVERNIGHT OATS

Whisk a tablespoon of raw runny honey into 100ml milk until dissolved, then stir into 50g oats and leave to sit for a few hours, or overnight. Grate in a small apple and top with chopped nuts or seeds to serve.

HONEY PEANUT BUTTER

You can, of course, just stir together honey and peanut butter, but for extra smug points make your own by whizzing 500g roasted peanuts to crumbs in a food processor, then adding a tablespoon of oil (coconut and groundnut are both nice), a decent pinch of salt and a couple of tablespoons of honey. Process until creamy, then adjust seasoning if necessary – and ration. A dangerously addictive dip for apple or carrot.

SALAD DRESSING

Honey makes an excellent addition to salad dressings, particularly for crunchy autumnal ingredients such as chicory and walnuts. Shake two parts lemon juice or cider vinegar to one part honey in a jam jar until well combined, then shake in three parts oil and season to taste.

WARM – NOT HOT! – TODDY

Heat 60ml water with a strip of lemon peel, a knob of ginger, a cinnamon stick and a few cloves, until steaming. Allow to cool to drinking temperature, then stir in a tablespoon of honey and the juice of half a lemon, plus a tot of whiskey if you feel particularly grim. It helps, I promise. Remember never add honey to boiling water as you will pasteurize it and take all the goodness out of it

amazing feedback on our products

Message Body:
Hi,
I visited your stand at the Galway Christmas Market a few weeks ago and bought your hand cream, foot cream and lip balm from a lovely man working there.  He mentioned that your products were getting great feedback from people suffering from eczema, I developed eczema three years ago and have found nothing that helps with the itch and the dryness.  I have an unusual type of eczema that manifests as extremely itchy liquid filled blisters on my fingers that then burst and cause all my skin to peel off and bleed.  I was sceptical that your products would work because I have used every cream available, including prescription ones and was reluctantly considering having to take oral medication to try to clear the eczema.  I have been using your products for a few weeks now and there was an instant improvement, my fingers are now completely clear and this is the first time in three years that I haven’t been constantly itchy.
I just wanted to let you know and say thanks so much!
