Macarons from Paris, France

Actually, these macarons hail from Laduree in New York, New York – apparently the storefront has macarons shipped from Paris, France every two days (it must be good, right!?).

..and finally into mason jams!

Extracting honey is no easy task, it took several hours because there was a lot of waiting to be done (had to filter it 3 times and honey drips extremely slow during the fall season). But boy, it was worth it to have such yummy honey spread on my homemade bread for breakfast! I love fresh honey, it is delicious!
