Forest honey -
Wayanad is also famous for forest honey. We got an information that we can buy Pure Forest honey in the Tribal Co-operative Society which is on the way from Thirunelli temple to Homestay. After few miles , we reached Tribal Society - It is surrounded by electric fencing to avoid animals entering in to the office. Officer in the Tribal society said, they collect honey from tribals.
There are different types of honey being sold in Tribal Society. Forest honey , small bee honey - It is very costly and priced around Rs.2500 per Kg and has plenty of medicinal values & Medieum Size bee honey or Puttu honey. Unfortunately Small bee honey was out of stock .
We could see honey is being stored in a large Sintex tank and they are selling it in Kgs. Better go with container if you are planning to buy honey as they are selling honey in plastic bottles which is cost Rs.5 for each bottle. We bought 1kg of Forest honey cost Rs.400. We used it and could feel the difference between the commercial honey available in the Super Market.
Kattikulam Wholesale Super Market for Spices -
After the Honey hunt in Tribal Society :) , The home food owner in Kuruva Island gave a Whole Sale Super Market phone number in Kattikulam ( A small town), it is also on the way from Thirunelli Temple to Home stay for buying spices at cheaper cost . Driver helped us to reach that place and we bought pepper and cardamom in cheaper cost , but the quality of those spices seems to be second quality. We reached home around 8.30 PM that day and enjoyed the night with Campfire :) .
