Raw Honey, Shropshire Ling Heather Honeycomb Frame
Heather honeycomb captures the late summer floral bloom of the remote moors. This distinct aromatic, floral honey is jelly like in consistency and is highly prized. Nutty cheeses go well with this rich bitter sweet heather honey. Nic one of our Italian beekeepers recommends Pecorino Sardo or a good quality cheddar such as Keen's. The sweetness balances the saltiness well. Serve squares of cheese with honeycomb on top as a canapé.
Straight from the beehive, this is a delicious treat: raw honey in its most pure, natural state. The whole comb can be eaten, the beeswax is lightly chewy. Raw honey's health benefits have long been recognised by communities all over the world. Honey doesn't go off so you can enjoy it at your own pace.
Available from late summer.
