Interesting statistic: The annual per capita comsumption of honey in the US: 1.31 lbs. The amount of honey the average worker honey bee makes in its lifetime: 1/2 teaspoon. Holy cow, that's a lota bees!

Take some of that honey, cream it with softened butter and cinnamon and spread it on flour tortillas. Cut them in wedges, place on a buttered baking sheet and bake at 400 until puffed and golden, about 5 minutes. Goes great with coffee ice cream. Or mix it with equal amounts of Saga blue cheese (or any soft creamy blue) with a dash of port and stuff very ripe pears (halved and cored). Place in a buttered baking dish, stuff with the blue cheese mixture and run under a preheat broiler until lightly browned. Transfer to dessert plates and spoon any juices in the pan over the top. Yum!
