May Preservation


Not much this month, but I didn’t start until last weekend, so I need to take into account that this is a ‘what I put away in a week’ more than ‘what I put away in a month.

I did score a giant jar of local raw honey. One of my coworkers’ families owns an apiary and she gets more honey than she knows what to do with. And she passes it onto me. And I cherish every drop of it.
