Everyone knows about honey bees and their honey sold in stores. Everyone sees the pollen sacs around their legs that are like little saddle bags and assumes that that’s part of the honey process. I have also seen the same sacks around bumble bees legs but never really thought about it. Do bumble bees make honey and where can I get some?
I see your point, Chefguy, but I wonder if we need another opinion. Gravy, of course, needs the animal’s fat. I don’t know if arachnids have fat or not. There’s a grey area between stock and broth, though, and the difference is said to be something cooked out of the bones. Does an exoskeleton yield stock? I’m asking for information’s sake, not as a challenge. You’re a chef. I am but a cook.
