When we went to the Carmel Honey Company presentation at Earthbound Farm this weekend, they hosted a honey tasting. That's always my favorite part! Beekeeper Jake's mom made some waffles and we tasted them with four different kinds of honey.
Clockwise from the top left: meadowfoam, sage, wildflower, and orange blossom. I love how different they look...and taste!
We went back multiple times to taste the different honeys.
While R declared his favorite is still orange blossom (it's been that was for years no matter how many different kinds I present to him), D and I thought that the meadowfoamn honey was the most unique. I found it muted and sweet with hints of caramelized custard and a hint of burnt sugar. Kinda like a crème brûlée. My favorite! D said it was more like a toasted marshmallow.
So we bought a jar and spooned it over vanilla ice cream for dessert. Delish!
