Thanks to a warm winter and a mild, early spring, pre-season honeybees are catching urban beekeepers—and pedestrians—by surprise. Rather than fear the swarms of (friendly when unprovoked) bees, New Yorkers should use the abundant honey in recipes like this Honey-Soy Sauce Chicken with Mâche-and-Citrus Salad. As Chase Emmons, a managing partner of Brooklyn Grange Rooftop Farm, told the New York Times: “City folk should be happy that we’re getting early-season honey.” Of course, non-New York residents can also make the sticky, salty-sweet drumsticks with their own local honey.
