Mikaila Ulmer will be participating again on National Lemonade Day at the Hope Farmers Market this Sunday May 6th from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. She won “Most Creative Lemonade” in 2011, and I’m sure she is hoping for another strong showing this year.
She makes home-made, freshly-squeezed lemonade with Texas wildflower honey & flaxseed inspired by a recipe found in her great-grandmother Helen’s vintage 1940s-era cookbook. She even donates 20% of her profits to the Texas Beekeepers Association.
I didn’t make it out to her stand last year, but I’m not going to miss it this year.
I’m a huge fan of cornbread covered in honey. I really like this recipe because it uses a lot of honey as an ingredient in the cornbread for extra honey flavor.

I got my wife an ice cream maker for Christmas last year, but we haven’t had an opportunity to use it yet. We decided that July 4th weekend was a great time to try it out, and what better flavor to inaugurate the machine than ice cream flavored with the first honey harvest from Large Marge’s hive.
Luckily, Mistress Beek had this recipe on her blog for honey ice cream that really turned out well. We opted to leave out the sesame seeds since my honey is very light, but I agree the pinch of salt makes all the difference. We have a bunch of Texas peaches that we are going to grill tomorrow evening to pair with the ice cream. Toasted hazelnuts or peanuts would also make a fantastic topping as well.
