Hungarian Acacia Honeycomb

$ 15.00

Tasting Notes: Light and sweet with delicate notes of white flowers and vanilla.

This gorgeously gold honeycomb has delicate floral notes with a hint of vanilla that will make your mouth water and your charcuterie boards sing! 100% edible, honeycomb is full of antioxidants and minerals, and is a heart-healthy snack and sweetener!

Hungarian Acacia honey is a perennial favorite in our tasting room because its light and delicate sweetness is like nectar from the gods. About 20% of the forests in Hungary are the acacia tree (the densest population in Europe!) and this light raw northern honey is just the touch to impress your friends, treat yourself, or tell your host/hostess thank you!

Though we recommend trying this honeycomb by the spoonful, there are many delicious ways to enjoy raw honeycomb! Besides making a delightful and artful addition to cheeseboards, honeycomb may be added to salads, fresh fruit, or enjoyed on toast!

Pair with: Cheese boards, Yogurt, Fresh Fruit, Warm Biscuits/Toast

Can I eat the beeswax in honeycomb? Absolutely! Beeswax is not hard and is 100% edible. It even contains valuable antioxidants and minerals. As with all foods, some people may find the texture more convenable than others, but we think it's delicious on crackers with a bit of cheese!

Natural raw honey has the seemingly magical capability of spontaneously "setting" or crystallizing. Each honey will crystallize at a different rate based on the sugar and water composition. With its wonderful texture and more concentrated flavor, we recommend crystallized honey as a delicious spread over toast! If liquid honey suits you better, simply heat a warm water bath to 100 degrees and remove the pan from the heat. Submerge your jar with the cap removed and allow to stand 20-30 minutes. It will be ready to pour again! An uncertain amount of time will pass before the honey may need de-crystallization again, and then simply repeat these steps as needed.
