Eating My Way Through the Alphabet: Letter H

What’s Cooking in Gail’s Kitchen? Simple Sensations: Honeycomb Sweet Bee! Raw honeycomb has the most incredible flavor concentrated with the sweet nectar of wildflowers. The first time I tasted it, with a crisp apple slice and a nibble of sharp cheese, I realized what all the buzz was about. This edible mystery is a conversation-starter at every gathering. And a little goes a long way. Store honeycomb at room temperature in a covered container. 

Raw Honeycomb Square 

Granny Smith apples 

Cheddar Cheese, Extra Sharp*

Seedless Grapes

Smoked Almonds, whole with sea salt

Multi-Grain Crackers

*Brie may be used as well. 

Place a square of raw honeycomb in the center of a shallow dish or platter. Arrange apple slices, seedless grapes, assorted cheese cubes or wedges, crackers, and nuts around the edges. Provide an appetizer spreader, utensil, or spoon to serve. As the honeycomb cells are broken, they release the golden honey within. 
***My resource for purchase is the Savannah Bee Company. (I receive no recompense for promoting their product.)

  1. This post brought me happy memories of my great-uncle Sam, a bee keeper. He would dress me in appropriate garb and take me out to tend the bees with him. My reward: a dripping piece of honeycomb. I’m so glad you included a place for purchase. And thank you, Gail, for solving the problem of what to serve the next time my book club meets at my house!
