I've long heard about Manuka honey. A few years ago, I wrote a story for Edible Monterey Bay about honey and one of the people I interviewed told me about some of its wild medicinal benefits. In addition to being a beekeeper, she is also a nurse practitioner. She had used Manuka honey for its antibacterial qualities to fight an infected skin condition on one of her patients; she told me that the use of honey as a salve reduced the scarring and increased the rate of skin regeneration. I was sold!
The Manuka honey from Wedderspoon is thick and flavorful. It's delicious.
I picked the citrus for their visual appeal. You can use all naval oranges or whatever citrus you have available to you. To make this Whole30 compliant - more on that soon - skip the honey. It's just as good that way.
Ingredients serves 4
- 2 organic cara cara oranges
- 2 organic naval oranges
- 2 organic grapefruits
- 2 T Manuka honey
- 1 T freshly squeezed lemon juice
- 1 T olive oil
- 1 t fresh thyme
- 1 t sea salt flakes
Slice the citrus and arrange on a serving plate, alternating colors, if you are using different colored fruits.
Sprinkle with thyme and sea salt. Drizzle with Manuka, lemon juice, and olive oil. Serve immediately.
