In The Bender Kitchen: Olde Mistick Village/ Sticky Situations

NEW HAVEN, Conn. (WTNH) — Joined by Stephen Clemente, owner of Sticky Situations back with a sweet treat.

As a continuation of “Cooking with Raw Foods” series at Olde Mistick Village. We’ll be showcasing how to use raw, unfiltered honey as a natural preservative in your holiday canning and jarring process. Specifically, we’ll be making flavored honey butters.

Raw, unfiltered honey is rare, most of the honey that you find in the supermarket is pasteurized. Subsequently, pasteurized honey does not have the health benefits that raw, unfiltered honey possess. Raw, unfiltered honey means that the honey contains the pollen, and is never heated above a specific temperature. As such, this style of honey is anti-viral, anti-fungal, and anti-pathogenic — so it can act as food preservation agent. Additionally, this type of honey can help with seasonal allergies and so increasing your raw, unfiltered honey intake during cold and flu season is an excellent way to staff healthy and increase your overall well-being.
