During a recent trip to the Finger Lakes, I was treated to a selection of beautiful local honey. I picked up several different varieties and plan to put out a little bowl of each for a honey tasting on Rosh Hashanah. I’ll be serving chunks of challah and apple slices for dipping. Create your own honey tasting or order a honey sampler pack from the Kline Honey Bee Farm in Ohio. The sampler pack ($12 plus shipping) includes: orange blossom, wildflower, buckwheat, blueberry, fall goldenrod and spring blossom.
A honey tasting would be a nice treat after a day of apple picking or for a fall cocktail party. Serve the honey with toasted baguette and a high-quality ricotta cheese. Pair it with a cab franc or sauvignon blanc for a truly decadent treat.
