SWEET

Doug Mills/The New York Times

This summer was the first time EVER honey was produced on the White House grounds. 134 pounds or roughly 11 gallons of sweet honey was produced. Charlie Brandts, a White house carpenter set up a hive where the bees could forage on the abundant flowers and tree blossoms.
The resulting linden flower honey was bottled for the first family to eat and serve at events and for Mrs Obama to give as gifts.......
