Blessing of new honey at Optina Monastery

The blessing of new honey is a wonderful tradition. It is done traditionally on the first day of the Dormition Fast (specifically: on the Feast of the Procession of the Precious and Life-giving Cross) along with the blessing of water. I've posted on the event a few times in the past and, while it is not done by all the Orthodox Churches, it is catching on in many parishes across the US. More photos available here.
