The “new” Iowa Honey Recipe cookbook was created in 1999. Many great honey cooks have joined our membership since that date. It is time to publish a new cookbook. If you would be interested in helping create our new cookbook, please contact Donna Brahms.
The board has suggested several names of people that might be willing to work on the cookbook, but we don’t want to overlook anyone that would be interested in helping. The sales of the current cookbook have increased dramatically, so a new cookbook seemed like the thing to do. We will let you know the schedule, the categories, and the submission form as we progress with this committee. Start sorting your favorite honey recipes now.
