Now that it’s Autumn, it’s time to start cooking again at the monastery. Sr Veronique always produces wonderful preserves and applesauce. A great way to use Cinnamon Creamed Honey is as a topping on hot tart applesauce. Just put a dollop of honey on top and let it melt into the applesauce. Delicious!

Glenda Hope, Presbyterian minister and founder of San Francisco Network Ministries which serves the people of the Tenderloin District providing affordable housing, vocational training, and a safe house for women as well as HIV/AIDS pastoral […]

This bread has become a trademark of Redwoods Monastery ever since. Because it is so simple, it is the perfect bread to eat topped with any flavor of Monastery Creamed […]

Every morning, our breakfast at Redwoods Abbey includes homemade granola, yogurt, breads, butter, homemade jams, and of course a jar or two of creamed honey. Try some honey with peanut butter on top of the granola. It’s great! Honey on toast is good too – especially if it is buttered first!
