Perfectea Apple Butter, Perfectea Honey, and German Rock Sugar


On the left is a jar of apple butter that was delivered to me this morning by my mom and dad. It was made at a church that is attended by a woman named Minerva who lives across the street from my folks. When stirred into hot tea? It is PERFECT. (It is also perfect when spread thinly (or even thickly) onto an English muffin.)

On the right is a jar of honey that was passed along to Jeff yesterday by his mom and dad, who have hives on their property. We get one or two jars each year from them. When stirred into hot tea? It is PERFECT. (It is also perfect when drizzled over the cookies that are made with only oats and bananas. That link will take you to a version that contains walnuts. I leave out the walnuts.)

One other thing that is perfect when stirred into hot tea? Teavana’s German Rock Sugar, which is now called Perfectea Rock Sugar and I personally think the name change is crap, and I wonder if it has anything at all to do with the three-way marriage between Oprah (and her weird chai blend), Starbucks, and Teavana. The jar I have was purchased as German Rock Sugar, and I’m not sure I’ll ever buy Perfectea Rock Sugar, because: Come On. (The good news? With all of this apple butter and honey, it will be a long time before I need to explore my convictions.) ‘ ‘ ‘text/javascript’>

  1. all of this sounds great in your tea and on your toast — apple butter, honey, and rock sugar — but along with all the Halloween candy you still have, you might want to watch the sugar, just a little.

  2. I made apple butter this weekend. Star anise rules.
    I’d throw some warm spices (nutmeg?) Into those cookies, too. Is it time for bread pudding yet?

  3. Oooh oooh oooh, the canning jars reminded me. Need to google recipe for “beet root chutney”…here we go……yes, yum! Not sure that’s the recipe I will use, but bought some similar at a street fair last week & it’s so pretty and Chritmasey — and *tasty*!! Might be just the “new thing” for this year’s gifting. Thanks for the reminder :-)

  4. I saw right past your sweeteners to the blue canary in the outlet by the lightswitch who watches over you! I had no idea there was such a night light, but now my husband is getting one for Christmas!
