Something is abuzz in the White House. Ever since President Barack Obama stepped foot in the White House, food has gained national attention.
Michelle Obama’s vegetable garden and fight against obesity are well known. But did you know that the White House is also producing honey? That’s right, the White House South Lawn is home to beehives that produce as much as 100 kg of honey.
The honey is used as a sugar substitute in dishes for the First Family, according to the Obama Foodorama blog.
Not only do the bees produce this sweet nectar, but they also help pollinate Michelle Obama’s vegetable garden, which last year yielded almost a ton of produce, according to Charlie Brandts, the official beekeeper of the White House.
Good honey is hard to get and Obamas obviously had not heard of FoodsCross’ honey. There is no way (no offence Charlie) that they will manage to produce a honey as exquisite as that of the Greek islands or as rich in thyme pollen grains. However, hats off for the effort!
