The Virtues of Comb Honey

Each batch of honey retains the floral essences of the plants from which it was made, but the flavor of wax comb also differs according to what the bees ate and adds a richness to the flavor that extracted honey doesn’t have. This combination of flavors, textures, and aromas you can’t find anywhere else on earth.

Eating honey that’s still in its comb is the best way to enjoy its delicious sweetness and its nutritional value. You can not tamper with Comb Honey, so the vitamin, mineral and nutrient content is optimal. Comb Honey maintains the activity of any enzymes and healthy bacteria present, so they’re live when they enter your body, and more easily used.

Toast a piece of your favorite bread or an English muffin. While it is still very hot, spread it lightly with butter. With a knife, cut a chunk of comb honey and spread it over the toast. You may have to mash it a bit, but the heat will soften the comb so it flattens into the toast along with the honey. It doesn’t melt, but becomes soft and aromatic. It is also good on hot biscuits, French toast, or pancakes.

The upscale restaurants often serve comb honey in the center of a plate surrounded by a selection of expensive cheeses and multi-grain crackers. The idea here is to cover the cracker with a piece of cheese and top it off with a thin sliver of chunk of comb. This works great with most soft cheeses like Brie, or Goat Cheese but any cheese will work. #bobthebeeguy
