Honeycomb is nature's delicacy and the most raw form of honey and it's completely edible. It's both rustic and sophisticated. If you're new to honeycomb, here are a few ways to enjoy this delectable sweet treat! You can find honeycomb in our online store.

1. Enjoy Honeycomb by the Spoonful

The easiest way to enjoy honeycomb is to carve out a spoonful, or slice a thin sliver with a knife and enjoy as is. The wax is chewy and edible, although some people prefer to spit it out like gum. It is a guilty-free pleasure.

2. Honeycomb with Cheese and Crackers

Honeycomb will take your cheese board to the next level. The sweet honeycomb with salty cheese is a match made in heaven, and the texture of cheese blends beautifully with the honeycomb. We recommend slicing a small amount of honeycomb onto a cracker and layering it with sharp cheddar, smooth brie, flavourful blue, and any cheese in between.

3. Honeycomb with Charcuterie

Like cheese, honeycomb pairs deliciously with cured meats like prosciutto, capicola, and dried sausage.

5. Honeycomb With Green Apples, Grapes, and Walnuts

Slice up a green apple and scoop up a bit of honeycomb for a delicious afternoon snack. Likewise grapes (and cheese...can you see a theme here?) are also amazing with honeycomb. Crunchy walnuts, cashews, and pecans make a great pair too.
