Winds, I have not made mead, but wanted to. Since I went on the wagon it doesn't make sense to try it. I have made beer though. I also wanted to make chestnut beer with honey. (chestnut beer is gluten free). But again, the alcohol thing gets in the way.
I have honey in my tea- I drink about 2 quarts or so of green tea a day. Just a bit of honey though-not like Southern Sweet Tea. That stuff is nasty IMO. I also use honey in baking sometimes, but I don't bake as much as I would like to and some people in my family aren't as adventurous as I am.
As for what I use to dispense honey in my kitchen? A 5 gallon bucket with a honey gate on it. 5 gallons is 60 lbs of honey (12 pounds per gallon. I do sell honey as well, so I can fill containers as people wait if they bring their own.) Pic is of my honey buckets
(Edit) Ooopps that pic is of an abandoned house in the neighborhood. Maybe I'll get the honey buckets later.
