Sage Honey Update and Kitchen Windowsills

The other week I showed you this photo of my sage-infused honey….

I used a normal garden sage and some pineapple sage from my pot.

Well, I did the taste test after about 10 days, and it is AMAZING!

I immediately went to buy some more honey…. πŸ˜‰

Two more pots are now sitting on my windowsill, along with another small one containing a few sprigs of rosemary… I’ll let you know how that turns out in a week or so!

At the moment, as you can see, my kitchen windowsill is a bit crammed…

… with freshly delivered new herbs and spices, a pot of basil (mine has given up!), apples and butternut, liqueurs and infused honey… and a few gladioli flowers left over from a bunch brought back from the flower field.

(I’ll be posting some recipes with my new spices soon!)

So what is on YOUR kitchen windowsill at the moment?

Have a good start into the weekend everyone. Hope it’s a sunny one for you!

  1. wow..nothing like this…I made some pesto…I like tupelo honey lavendar honey,sourwood honey,galberry honey but I havent had any of the rest…like your curtains

  2. I love your ‘edible windowsill’ Cathy! Mine isn’t half so interesting – a couple of pots of Aloe vera (used on a regular basis to treat cooking-related burns!), and a space ready for some chilli plants to move into when the greenhouse gets too cold for them.

    • It’s always tricky finding space for delicate plants… I’m clearing spaces in my cooler rooms for geranium cuttings and my aeonium! The Aloe vera sounds like a good idea in the kitchen! πŸ˜‰

  3. I like the small bear on the far right, so sweet! On my window sill are some (supposedly) spicy peppers in a pot, but they have given up more or less and a bowl with some fruit and vegetables.

  4. Hi Cathy, I was a bit curious as to how the honey would turn out, I may try it myself.

    I love your window sill, mine is skinny with a tiny jade plant, some butterfly and ladybug figurines and seeds, lots of seeds, mostly Nasturium’s drying.
    Yours is nice and big it looks inviting, too bad I can’t shrink down to size and just sit there right next to the bear, we could chat and eat honey and I could tell you fantastic tales to amuse you while you can make me yummy things to eat!! πŸ˜‰

    • That would be lovely…you could be my chief taste tester! The bear is Franz, by the way… very amicable but the silent type. I gave him some sage honey, but he didn’t become any more talkative. So some stories would definitely liven up the kitchen! πŸ˜‰
