Nektar Honey Crystals
Nektar Honey Crystals® is a new way to use honey, without a sticky mess! These 100% natural crystals deliver the rich, taste of honey and the convenience of cane sugar.
We all know that liquid honey is Sticky, Sticky, Sticky and Messy, Messy, Messy. We use it daily during the High Holiday season, and truly love to use honey year round for its sweet nutritional benefits. That’s why we were intrigued when we tried Nektar honey crystals.
From the founder Jeremy Edelman: ”Nektar Honey Crystals™ come from bumble, sorry, I mean humble beginnings. As a serious tea guy, I was tired of the sticky honey bottles and jars that we have all become accustomed to. After a particularly bad honey-spill, I knew there had to be a better way to carry and use honey. With a little research, entrepreneurial spirit, and honey all over my hands, Nektar Honey Crystals™ were born.”
This is a "how did they do that" sweet discovery. Nektar Naturals has recently introduced a convenient pourable and spoonable jar of Nektar honey crystals, a natural granulated honey sweetener, made of honey and sugar. It is a convenient and delicious way to use honey without the mess. How Sweet!

Pereg Gourmet, a family business established in 1906, offers a wide array of convenient products such as seasonings, spices and flavored bread crumbs, rice and couscous ancient grains and quinoa products. The company produces over 60 varieties of spice blends and herbs, free of additives and preservatives. Pereg products are kosher certified by the Orthodox Union (OU).
We had never tried Farro – so we were delighted with the opportunity to taste Pereg Gourmet Farro with Garden Vegetables. It is a convenient mix…ready to prepare on the stovetop. We simply added water and let it “cook” for about 20 minutes to reach the “al dente” stage. The mix is pre-seasoned. What a filling and delicious side dish. We enjoyed it warm, but it was also good at room temperature. Farro is one of those ancient grains that is just coming to the culinary forefront- - not too far behind quinoa. It is a good substitute and change-up for rice and pasta…and a nutritious source of fiber, protein and iron.
Pereg offers Farro plain, and in 3 additional “just add water flavors…. We are looking forward to trying the mushroom and rosemary blend.
More about Farro:
Farro is a food composed of the grains of wheat species. It is sold dried and is prepared by cooking in water until soft, but still crunchy (many recommend that prior to cooking, whole grain farro should be soaked overnight). There are actually several types of farro – which require different cooking times. It may be eaten plain, and it is savored as an ingredient in dishes such as salads and soups. Farro has been found in the tombs of Egyptian kings and is said to have fed the Roman Legions. Italians have dined on farro for centuries. Now, with the revival of interest in whole grains, farro's popularity is gaining in the U.S. as well.

A Charleston, South Carolina Specialty
We've got the people of Charleston on our mind this week. We are touched, comforted and encouraged by their unity and shared sense of loss, a lesson for the world and the country. To celebrate thie beautiful city of Charleston, one of our favorite destinations in the U.S., we are sharing a favorite product and some recipes.
We consider Carolina Plantation Stone Ground Grits the Rolex of grits. These grits are coarse-ground the old fashioned way, processed between the granite stones of an antique Meadows gristmill. Chefs in several upscale Southern restaurants serve Carolina Plantation Grits on their menus, and we serve these at home. The grits have a rich taste and a thick, creamy texture. The longer they cook, the creamier they get. Top them with grated cheddar cheese, or just plain butter...delicious!
Carolina Plantation stone-ground grits are packaged in 2-pound cloth bags. According to most orthodox rabbis, plain corn grits do not need kosher certification. For information, recipes, and to purchase, visit the Carolina Plantation web site.
How to make grits and serve grits: We love our grits with eggs and toast - or sometimes, we serve them like the mainstream chefs with shrimp (faux kosher shrimp of course) or alongside grilled or fried fish. Here are recipes for Cheese Grits and Easy Slow Cooker Grits.Add a comment
