Update on how to eat comb honey
Since my post on eating comb honey, I’ve been looking for additional suggestions. The following is just a variation on what I already wrote, but it is truly delicious.
I sliced whole grain artisan bread into half-inch slices and then cut squares about 1.5 inches (4 cm) on a side. I spread the squares with goat cheese (Chèvre), stuck a candied pecan into the cheese, and topped the whole thing with a small chunk of comb honey. I served these with a cold IPA. Perfection.
The chewy bread contrasts with the crunchy pecan, and the tartness of the cheese complements the sweetness of the honey. It’s definitely worth a try. If you’re in the states, Trader Joe’s candied pecans are lightly sweet—but very crunchy—and worked perfectly. Other types of nuts would work as well.
I’m looking for still more suggestions, so please let me know.
