The new school year is set to begin so I should be switching gears to more structured days, schedules, homework and less summery thoughts. Right? Well, I’m having great difficulty with it. I find myself clinging to these last days that are technically still summer. The calendar hasn’t flipped to autumn just yet so I’ve decided I’m not either.

The schedule of the school day my force me to conform a bit but I’ll rebel where I still can. One of my favorite things about any season is the produce available. While I can still get my hands on a ripe watermelon, a juicy peach or a sweet pineapple, I’ll be enjoying them with reckless abandon before I switch over to apple, pumpkin, butternut squash everything.

Here I roasted ripe fresh pineapple with Honey Ridge Farms new Coconut Honey Crème, brown sugar and a little lime juice which caramelize on the pineapple. A dollop of vanilla bean yogurt, a dash of chile powder and a sprinkling of chopped pistachios finish this practically guilt-free dessert recipe off. This roasted pineapple is the perfect way to enjoy the last of the summer produce before it disappears.

Oh and that new honey flavor? I want to just eat it with a spoon! In fact, all the new flavors are outstanding. As if there were any doubt that they would be! As you may already know, I’m a big fan of Honey Ridge Farms products. I love using their honey as part of a cheese board, spread on toast or stirred into tea for an interesting flavor. The Balsamic Honey Vinegar is absolute perfection in my Balsamic Butternut Squash & Barley Salad. I make that recipe at least once a week once the cooler weather sets in.

Bees are not only responsible for making the key ingredient of Honey Ridge Farms outstanding products but bees are essential for pollination. With bee numbers plummeting, our food system is in grave danger. No bees means no food. No food means no humans. Seedles are looking to change that and you can support their mission! Their goal is to grow one billion wildflowers so together we can support the declining bee population. These little balls of compose, seeds and clay are designed to take the guesswork out of planting. All you have to do is throw them, and grow them!

My girls and I had such fun planting our Wildflower Seedles. There was no digging holes or anything labor intensive. I opened the packet and they simply picked out a Seedle and tossed it on the ground! I pressed it in just a little and then they watered the Seedle. That was it! Hopefully in a few weeks we’ll be helping the bee population to thrive and ensure a sustainable food system for their future.

Today I want you all to help with this goal! To help you along your way, I have a giveaway to offer today. Not only will one lucky winner get one jar each of the newest Honey Ridge Farms Honey Crème flavors (Coconut, Lavender, Lemon Lavender, Blood Orange) but you’ll also get some Seedles so that you can help save the bees! I hope you’ll help support this important mission. Use the Rafflecopter form below.
