TIP OF THE DAY: Try Varietal Honey Types

“Supermarket” honey is blended to achieve a
generic sameness. This very distinctive black
sage honey is from Savannah Bee Company.

 

If you like honey as a sweetener, have you ventured beyond “generic” supermarket honey to fine varietal honeys?

As with wine, it’s the difference between a bland jug wine and a varietal wine, which has the distinctly delightful characteristics of its particular grape.

And as with wine, different honeys pair better with certain foods. See this comparison of nine top varietal honeys and the foods they complement.

There are many different kinds of honey—300 varietals in the U.S. alone. While some people might make it a life’s work to try all of them, start small. In fact, start with the pairings we’ve just mentioned.

Life’s too short to stick with generic honey.
