Here is the welcome letter from the creators, Josh & Brent. This month’s box is all about roasting favorites. They chose roasting due to the weather being a mix of cold and warm this time of year. I think the theme is perfect for March.
When I first saw the two jars of honey my eyes lit up- I love honey. I have never heard of creamed honey before and love discovering new products. Apparently you baste meat with it- yum! It has a delicious lemon smell and I’m happy to have this addition in my pantry! The jar suggests using this directly into hot tea, spreading on toast and as a poultry glaze.
This has an amazing strong rosemary smell and I can already imagine how wonderful chicken will taste basted with this creamed honey! On the packaging it says it took 648 bees one year to make the honey in this jar. I love when creators put fun facts on products. The jar suggests using this on Beekman Blaak, fine cheese, fruit, ice cream and in poultry & pork dishes.
Thank goodness the creators included a recipe card for the jars of honey. I had no clue how to use them initially and this gave me guidance. Can’t wait to try out the recipes this weekend!
I have never heard of fruit cake mix being used except for an actual fruit cake so my initial reaction was bummed. After reading the back of the can and looking online I can’t wait to use it because it is so much more than a classic fruit cake! It’s supposed to add flair and sweetness to poultry, pork or veal- just add butter and water & voila! You can also serve it as a side.
We eat a lot of cornbread at my house so I was excited to see this! My dad normally makes jalapeno cornbread so I can’t wait to switch it up with this sweet honey flavor! It will go perfect with the veggie soup we always make.
Verdict: This month’s Beekman Specialty Food Club box helped me discover new products. I’m excited about using the honey and stuffing mix, and the recipe cards were a nice addition. I also really like how Beekman’s website had everything in the box for sale online. Although I like the box I wasn’t impressed with the estimated value of the box: $37.95. That is below the subscription cost of $50.00 so I wasn’t happy to see that. I recommend this box to any chef, aspiring cook or foodie if the price value of the boxes increase. Hopefully next month’s box will have a higher value.
