Fresh Honey

Where is the best place to purchase fresh honey. I understand it is best to get from a beekeeper. I absolutely love the greek honey and I was wondering what was comparable to that in the US.

tempura bits

The Japanese stores in the suburbs do not carry tenkasu. They suggested that I make a tempura mix, drizzle it through a styrafoam cup poked with a chop stick that falls into hot oil to cook. Any other suggestions. How is the tensuka in the bag?

Question Re. practical uses for a 2.5 Qt. Le Crouset Doufeu

it fit in the pot about halfway up. a lb of tomatoes chopped is a 16 ounce can without the juice. it does not need a lot of juice to cook. i thru all the chicken breast in at once and took them out as they were browned. the cook book came in the box with the little doufeu.

i read that they cooked the exact same recipe in a dutch oven and a doufeu. They did a blind taste test and everyone picked the doufeu meal as being the best. i am going to purchase a tagine next and see how it cooks. was happy with my 1 doufeu meal that i made.
