Long-lived libations

Alcohol has been a loyal companion to man since the beginning, and some producers are still working from recipes that have endured a millennia.

Important work is being done in southwest Germany. Wired magazine reported that researchers in the area are trying to recreate a 2,550-year-old beer recipe working off residual clues found at an excavation site believed to be the remnants of an ancient largescale brewery.

Bee local

Though it may not help fight seasonal allergies, local honey makes up for it in taste and health benefits.

Food and Drink Features

Greg Horton
First, the bad news: According to a study published in the Annals of Allergy, Asthma & Immunology, local honey does not alleviate seasonal allergies any more efficiently than placebos.

Jerry Logan

Chow Chat

Jerry Logan, along with his wife, Jo, own and operate Honey Hill Farms located in Edmond.

The couple claims three sons, Mark, Barry and Chris, along with zillions of bees.

You have been: “Oklahoma Beekeeper of the Year in 2003 and President of the OK State Beekeepers' Association from 2004-2006.”

Former career before beekeeping: “A teacher at Millwood School.”

We can purchase your products at: “Stores mostly in OKC, but at four grocery stores in Edmond, two health food stores, two gourmet shops, feed supply houses and five different health food stores in Oklahoma City.”

What makes your regional honey so good: “I don’t know; I don’t have a thing to do with it. It’s what the bees collect.”

A famous person you kinda look like: “Gomer Pyle [of The Andy Griffith Show].”

Cook: “I don’t cook; I’ve got four wheels.”

Essential tool in your own kitchen: “My can opener.”

You’d never eat: “Squash.”

But love: “Sweet potatoes with honey on it. I have honey every day, even on my cereal in the morning . It is so nutritious and is such a good replacement for sugar.”

Personal motto: “Do your best.”

People don’t know: “There is nothing. I am an open book. Jo and I, we will have been married 49 years on the 31st of May.”

You met your wife: “On a blind date in Duncan.”

Die and come back as: “Myself.”

Where you like to eat: “Coolgreens and LaBaguette. After a recent heart attack, I stay away from fast food.”

What happens outside that makes you happy: “I like to see the flowers blooming, because I like to see the bees sitting on them.”

A real disaster: “When you pick up a hive and it comes apart and the bees just cover you.”

Plus: “One time I was pumping honey and forgot about it for a few minutes. Well, it overflowed on everything and it was a sticky mess.”

Good advice for using honey: “You can put it on burns or cuts as bacteria will not live in honey. It is really healthy.”

Sweet as Honey

Love means more than a hot dance, especially for women who entertain men — and other women — on Valentine's Day.


Tim Farley
Honey is a stripper who really enjoys her job.

Better than vinegar


Devon Green
Most of us take honey for granted. We think of a person swathed in a beekeeping suit and hives that look like the illustrations in Winnie the Pooh. It turns out it’s a little more complicated, but you can keep bees in your tiny lot right here in the city.
