Comb Honey: If You Love Honey, This is as Good as it Gets!
Why eat comb honey?
Try this: If you can get some honey in the comb, cut off a piece and place it in your mouth. Just let it rest on your tongue for a moment, savoring the bit of honey dribbling from the cells that were just cut. Now, slowly crush the comb between your tongue and the roof of your mouth.
One by one, the delicate, gossamer-thin walls of the wax cells burst, releasing their treasure of flavor and aroma. The last living things to touch that honey were the bees that made it. The last time that honey was exposed to the air was in the atmosphere of the hive.
You are experiencing honey in its truest, purest, most delectable form. No other form of honey can match honey in the comb for delivering the exquisite flavors and aromas of honey in a completely immaculate and natural form.
That’s why you should eat comb honey.
A real treat is spreading the honey comb on piping hot biscuits, with the wax melting and mingling with the honey and butter. Oh my!
You can also stir a chunk into a hot bowl of oatmeal. The wax just melts away, releasing the pristine sweetness of the comb honey and turning your oatmeal into a tasty treat.
And I often use it in this breakfast smoothie recipe.
But wherever it is sold, it will be one of two types: section or cut comb.
Section honey is sold in round or square containers. The section frames are made of either wood or plastic, and the bees build the comb directly in the frames.
Cut comb is simply pieces of honey comb that were cut from a larger piece of comb and packaged individually for sale.
They are all essentially the same from the consumer’s perspective, but the production techniques of each differ considerably.
