Bumbleberry Farms Honey Cream Spreads

Honey Cream Spread - sounds quite luxurious, doesn't it ? I am a HUGE fan of honey and making it into a spread just makes it even better. I was thrilled when Bumbleberry Farms contacted me to try their new line of honey cream spreads. The lovely flavors are Lover's Sea Salt Caramel, Squirrel Crazy, Sticky Buns Cinnamon and Molten Lava Spiced Chocolate

The average worker honeybee makes just 1/12 of a teaspoon of honey in her lifetime. This means it takes 1,152 honeybees to fill a one pound jar of honey! Honey is also one of the foods that never spoils and was actually found in the pyramids in Egypt. 

Bumbleberry Farms is a small operation based in Pennsylvania's Laurel Mountains, and everything is crafted in small batches. 

These spreads are great on just about EVERYTHING or on a spoon right out of the jar! Scones, oatmeal, toast, pancakes, yogurt, muffins, baking are some of the uses for these creams. 

You can even melt the honey cream to add to coffee drinks or smoothies! I love the fact that even though they store in the fridge once opened, they are still spreadable very easily. 

Here is a fantastic recipe from their website for Pork Chops with the Maple Cream as a glaze: 

Pork Chops:

4 bone-in, center cut pork chop

Olive oil

Salt and pepper, to taste

Maple Balsamic Glaze:

1/4 cup Squirrel Crazy Maple Cream

3-4 tbsp balsamic vinegar

2 tbsp vegetable stock

1 clove garlic, minced

1 sprig fresh rosemary

1 sprig thyme

Salt and pepper, to taste

For the glaze:

In a small saucepan, combine all of the glaze ingredients. Heat over medium-low heat until it reaches a low boil (just be cautious, the cream has sugar in it, so be sure it doesn't burn). Cook until the sauce reduces slightly and then set aside.

For the pork chops:

Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F. Dry the pork chops with a paper towel and then season with olive oil, salt and pepper. Place a drizzle of oil in an oven proof skillet and heat to medium-high. Place the pork chops in the skillet and sear them for 2-3 minutes. Brush them with the glaze.

Flip the pork chops over and brush the other side with the glaze. Transfer the pork chops to the oven and bake for 5-8 minutes, or until a thermometer reads 140 degrees.

Drizzle a bit more glaze to serve.

These would make a great gift for Mom for Mother's Day or any foodie lover in your life. I love unique items and especially small businesses - these are available online at Bumbleberry Farms
