White Deer Apothecary was inspired by Bee Day, so they will demonstrate how to make nutritive pastilles using honey and Mesquite pod powder. Mesquite is a native tree to Central Texas and its pods have been used as food by native peoples around the globe. Mesquite pods have a delicate, sweet flavor and provide protein, fiber and minerals. Adding this local “superfood” to your diet can help balance blood sugar, improve digestion and boost immunity.
