|What’s the latest buzz in the Honeys, Sugars & Syrups section of THE NIBBLE online magazine? Varietal honeys from Hawaii. We love this trio from Big Island Bees (no surprise, or we wouldn’t be writing about them). These unfiltered artisan honeys, collected by fourth-generation beekeepers, will open your eyes to the wonders of varietal honey. The ‘Ohi’a Lehua and Wilelaiki honeys are certified organic honey; the Macadamia honey, though not organic, has a complex, leathery nose with a touch of barnyard (that’s a good thing), tangy and citrus on the palate. Wilelaiki, a true connoisseur honey, is subtly smoky with a lingering, peppery finish. The most accessible (i.e., sweet and charming, everyone will love it—though it’s still distinctively varietal), ‘Ohi’a Lehua, is a creme-style honey that comes with a legend (beautiful woman turned into blossom to be reunited with her lover, who had been turned into a tree—doesn’t every family have one?). These Hawaiian varietals are pure, all natural, gourmet honey at its best. Each pairs with different foods; and at $9 a jar, makes a great house gift. Read the full review.||
