Tasting honey in new ways
After I wrote the post “What do you do with your honey harvest?,” I just had to try some of the suggestions, especially those that used comb honey. Someone recommended I try Trader Joe’s Toscano cheese dusted with cinnamon. I have to tell you, they were absolutely right. There is something about the flavor combination that is awesome, and the hint of cinnamon really sets off the honey. I urge you give this cheese a try. But it’s a seasonal offering only, so you have to try it now or wait another year.
The other idea I really liked was garnishing chili with both sour cream and a small chunk of comb honey. It’s one of those things I would never think of on my own, but it’s very tasty. This is a vegetarian chili topped with a Mexican cheese blend, a dollop of sour cream, and just a small hunk of comb honey. Yum. The honey offsets the heat and adds a depth of flavor. All washed down with an IPA, of course.
Has anyone else tried any of the ideas? I can’t wait to sample more.
