Update on Honey – ZayCon vs. Reisinger

I just talked to Janice Reisinger this morning. Their prices haven’t changed.

There are 12 lbs of honey in a gallon.


Reisinger  $52.80  for 2 gallons

ZayCon      $65.90  for 2 gallons

Besides, 5 gallon jugs are easier to handle than gallon pails and local honey is more beneficial for you than “foreign”  honey :).

Make it a great one!

ZayCon vs. Reisinger Raw Honey

I noticed that ZayCon is having a raw honey event at $65.90 for two gallons. Unless the prices at Reisinger Apiaries out in Emmett have changed drastically it looks like they have the better deal. They sell their honey by weight but it looks to me like you could fit two 5 lb. jugs in a gallon. They sell the 5 gallon jugs for $11.00, so $22 approximately for a gallon. Quite a bit better price even if it’s gone up in price or it takes more than 10 lbs. to make a gallon. Just thought you’d like to know.


Chicken Marinades and such

I will post as many recipes for preparing chicken to freeze as I can today. These are the recipes I used last time I got 40 lbs. of chicken from Zaycon.

Mine comes tomorrow and I’m getting 80 lbs. this time so I’m going to try some new recipes. I hope they work!

I decided that this time I will prepare some of the marinades the day before to shorten the “chicken day” a little.

Zaycon Foods

I got the following email from a friend and realized I hadn’t ever posted about this company. I got a case of chicken at the beginning of the summer and spent a day making multiple marinades, placed them into zip-lock freezer bags, and froze them. They have been wonderful to pull out this summer when I couldn’t think of what to make or didn’t feel like cooking. That happens often during the summer for me.

They currently deliver to Washington, Oregon, Idaho, Arizona, and Texas

Yummy peaches!

Yummy peaches!

See below to see how it works.

They also have various fruits. I just got two cases of peaches and they are very good.

I got an email from Zaycon today and got to thinking that you might be interested in what they do.  It’s a great concept.
When they send me an email about some fresh meat, I look at the date they’re coming to Boise and meet them at the location they refer me to.  I don’t even have to get out of the car when I pick it up!
Zaycon Foods is a privately owned company based out of Washington that brings fresh meat and other things to people wholesale.  They bring it directly from the farm and they only sell by the case.  I’ve ordered chicken from them to can, actually, and it’s some of the best I’ve ever purchased and the least expensive.  My friend froze a bunch of it in meals to save time each day.  Just in case you want to look into it, you can go there with this link:
If you get on their email list, they will send you up-dates to let you know what’s available and when they are bringing something new into the area. Bacon is the current item.
