Guest Post by Agnes of Hillsborough, NC
These caramels were made for the Hillsborough Beekeeper’s Association booth at the North Carolina State Fair in Raleigh. They won a blue ribbon after creating quite a buzz!
About the Guest Author
Agnes was raised on a farm in rural Ohio with her five sisters and a brother. Their home was always filled with the smells of homemade food. During the holidays, her Aunt Lizzie made cream caramels to give as gifts. This recipe is based upon that family recipe. Agnes has many hobbies including baking and candymaking, but one of her more recent interests is beekeeping. Her hives have produced a few seasons of honey, much of which she gives away to friends and family. She has also become creative in finding new uses for honey, such as this recipe. Agnes lives in Hillsborough, NC with her husband of 40 years. They spend hours tending to their proliferous vegetable garden and enjoying the natural beauty of their surroundings. She is the mother of two (I’m her firstborn) and grandmother to two (my sons!).

I’m very blessed and fortunate to live beside your mother and father. They are the matriarchs of the neighborhood of which we all aspire to be some day. In fact, my husband works hard to keep our grass growing green, so that we aren’t entirely shamed by your dad’s green thumb! They are a wonderful couple and we all admire and love them. When my husband was in Afghanistan in 2006, Andre and Aggie were there when I needed them. I want you to know I’m enjoying very much your “Weekly Greens”, great recipes with fresh simple ingredients. Thank you, Charlene Williams, Hillsborough, NC
Charlene, thanks for your very sweet message. I’m thrilled you are enjoying Weekly Greens and even more pleased that you’ve blessed my parents with your friendship. Thanks again for your note!
