On November 13, the Center for Honeybee Research held the third annual Black Jar Honey Contest to locate the most spectacular honey the bees were able to concoct this year. Hosted by chef William Dissen of the Market Place Restaurant in Asheville, NC, six chefs marshaled their tastebuds for the task.
And the winner is….
a honey made by rare bees from a rare plant, both of which only exist on the South African Cape . As the stories continue to mount, here's a teaser.
Anna Koloseike of the Buncombe County Beekeeping Chapter designed this stunning perpetual trophy to honor winning bees and their beeks for years to come.
