This summer all the bee hives around Red Hook had really red honey. Our hives in Carroll Gardens are just a stone’s throw away and also glowed with red. Here is an example:

Work on the street was that the bees had found a maraschino cherry factory. And it turns out the word was true, as uncovered by a NY times article on the same.

The red came from the food coloring No 40. Makes me wonder what other toxins they are ingesting and putting into the honey for us to eat… the toxic cloud of our world is very strange.
