A Honey of a Treat…PURE RAW WILDFLOWER HONEYCOMB 14 oz
Raw Honeycomb is a true delicacy of nature. The hexagonal cells that create the comb are made by bees from beeswax. Some 550 bees have to visit over 2 million flower blossoms to create 1 pound of honey, and then must consume 6 pounds of honey to generate 1 pound of beeswax!
Beeswax is an amazing substance that is entirely edible and contains a variety of healing and allergy-soothing properties. Into each beeswax cell, bees deposit the precious nectar they have gathered from thousands of flowers. The cell is capped with a thin layer of beeswax and reserved as food supply for the colony.
Many of the amazing chefs who use our products in their kitchens have requested that we offer fresh-cut comb honey to use with their cheese offerings and other tasty treats, so you can thank them for giving us the idea to offer these!
Use a sharp paring knife to cut pieces out of the box. Serve with a variety of cheeses and some thin warmed slices of baguette, or a rustic style county bread. It goes well with a piquant blue cheese, or a fresh ricotta or goat cheese served with dried pears and nuts, or fresh berries or cherries in season. Or, try with sharp cheddar and a piece of comb spread on top. You even can serve a slice with brunch and breakfast favorites...warm oatmeal, pancakes, waffles or French toast. “Bee” creative!
