honey, Random Talk

A peek into my daily life with Jerry

In my reading, researching and watching videos on building my business the one common detail is video, video, video! Everyone says you need to be doing videos. So every so often I record a video of our beehives. Nothing too crazy and certainly very little with me in it. But I decided I would take that leap and start making more videos with a little glimpse of behind the scenes featuring me and sometimes my man Jerry. However, doing anything with him without sarcasm or joking is totally impossible. Like this little clip…

Its Farmers Market Season

I’m super excited to say that I am at my local Farmers Market every Wednesday this year through October. I love this! I am totally in my element connecting with my customers and other vendors who I consider wonderful friends.

I get to sample all my peanut butters and honey, share and receive recipe suggestions and meet all kinds of people from near and far. It’s GREAT!!

Some days I’m under a downtown canopy and others I am under my own so I’m still figuring out what set up works best with what I have to work with. It gets tricky on those windy days, so packing tape and string come in handy to keep everything secure.

My spicy peanut butter seems to be a big hit.  With the right mix of Korean red pepper, cayenne pepper and ginger powder it has a nice heat that burns on the way down. This peanut butter can be heated to make a creamy peanut sauce consistency that’s delicious in any Asian dish or drizzled over roasted broccoli and asparagus. One of my customers said she mixed it with lime juice and made a chicken marinade. Grilled the chicken then brushed more spicy pb and lime mixture over it before serving. Sounds incredible!

Another cool thing about the market is all the great finds! I found these two cuties a couple booths down from me. The perfect plant, they don’t need regular watering.

So if you ever find yourself in Holland Michigan on a Wednesday come to the Farmers Market. Say hi, sample the wonderful products West Michigan has to offer and explore our wonderful town on the water.
