Question Honeycomb

Our lovely gardener had just knocked on the door and handed me a great big tub with huge, perfectly formed slabs of honeycomb and honey in.

What to do? I use honey but never actually bought or used honeycomb before

Suggestions or info greatfully received

Re: Honeycomb

Lyndsey what a lucky girl you are, you can eat all of it, the crunchy bits are yummy, I Love honey and it is part of my daily morning routine served on hot toast. Also you could put some of the comb out on a platter and serve with cheeses and biscuits or that gorgeous bread you get in Turkey. I love to mix honey with butter and just dip my toasted soldiers into it. Oh god it will be delicious.

Re: Honeycomb

Same here....served every morning along with traditional Turkish breakfast. The kids and I go and get fresh bread and they love the honeycomb as much as the runny stuff.

How beautiful and thoughtful of your gardener x

Re: Honeycomb

No it is horrible!! You can send it by cargo to me and I will send you a jar of runny honey back!

Actually the comments from the others are correct, it is also said to be good for allergies to eat local honey comb, it can also be very expensive depending on the type of flower the honey is derived from.

Re: Honeycomb

How lovely , as Jackie and self walked through the back end of Anjuna ( Goa ) market many moons ago i espied a metal bowl with a honeycomb dripping and oozing dark fragrant honey. A quarter spirit bottle filled with the honey was like ambrosia. It lasted 3 months in tiny sips. Wonderful. Hope you enjoy yours as much.

Steve.

Thank you for the suggestions from simply with fresh bread to cheese (which I never would've thought of) and to Steve for offering his "help"

Re: Honeycomb

I love honey but really don't like the honeycomb - guess I'm out of sync with the rest of you!

Oh joy, just look at those crunchy bits, lol. Must admit to bringing ome back from a local lady who sells in the village and my spoon stands up in it, might have to go and have a spoonful now, why wait until BREAKFAST.

Ap posted on another thread on this subject The Manuka Plant Honey is my regular preference Thingthong, bought this for a number of years now, and is worth the money. I've suffered with stomach problems and this really does help, it is delicious too. But, treated myself to a Turkish honey in May and it is very concentrated, I love it, but not much left now, it was a huge jar though.
