Rosh Hashanah, the Jewish New Year, is this week and we are celebrating with honey for a sweet New Year! I will be taking this flight of four honeys to my host this year and hope that she enjoys trying the different flavor profiles each honey represents. The honeys for this flight have been chosen with the thought of cheese pairings in mind. The suggestions are noted on an informative pamphlet that accompanies each flight. I can't help but think what a fun night it would be to have some friends over and have a honey and cheese tasting paired wine of course!
If the flight seems like a bit much, or not enough, we have three distinctly different honeys in jars, Maine Blueberry, Colorado Sweet Yellow Clover and Washington Buckwheat.
Main Blueberry honey is a rich and sturdy medium amber honey. Strong and sweet, with earthy components, this delectable honey finishes with a playful, buttery-sweet note.
Colorado Sweet Yellow Clover honey is made from the honey of bees that have pollinated the Yellow Melilot flower which characteristically sweet smell translates to a wonderful nose. You'll find it light, delicate, sweet and buttery at first taste, followed by warm undertones of cinnamon and nutmeg.
Washington Buckwheat Honey is a stout and complex honey. It can be compared to other sweeteners such as sorghum or molasses. Hints of mossy earth and a not-so-sweet composition combine to develop a malty flavor with a pronounced bright finish.
I prefer the Colorado Sweet Yellow, my husband loves the Main Blueberry, and my father cannot get enough of the Washington Buckwheat. Bellow I have listed out some of our favorite recipes for each honey!
