Manuka Honey

Seriously seriously powerful honey (I love honey) from New Zealand. Any stronger and the eucalyptus notes of the manuka flower would taste like Vicks Vaporub (!). But at this concentration, it's beyond delicious. Medicine. It actually has antibacterial properties. Courtesy of Sophie Jerram (thank you!).

When did you give up on being vegan!?

I'm still vegan. Honey is cool by me though.

The technical term is "bee-gan" someone who consumes honey (an animal product) while claiming to be otherwise vegan. The vast majority of vegans recognize that insects (and molluscs) are of a different class than mammals, birds, fish, and the like, but they give the benefit of the doubt to insects (and clams, mussels, etc). Agave and maple syrups are excellent substitute sweeteners.
