Pass the Comb Honey II

We’ve already introduced you to comb honey and given you some ideas on how to best eat it. You’re officially ready for the next level of how to eat comb honey! To elevate your comb honey beyond the ubiquitous cheese plate, check out the ideas below for some serious inspiration. 


Grill it, Girl!
We’re big fans of eating in season, and it’s officially peach season here in Texas.  Tierra Neubaum, one of our favorite local reporters, recently shared her recipe for grilled peaches (see how gorgeous these are above!) This recipe uses liquid honey, but we highlight below how you can substitute comb honey for an even more unique culinary experience! 

Grilled Peaches with Two Hives comb honey

Ingredients

  • 5-6 Texas peaches
  • 10-12 teaspoons goat cheese
  • 3/4 cup walnut pieces (**want to make this even more Texan? Sub pecans!)
  • 1/4 cup raw honey (**or comb honey, see below)
  • 1 orange slice

Cut the peaches in half, remove the pits and coat both sides with oil.
Heat the grill to high heat and grill both sides of the peach for 4-5 minutes. 
While peaches grill, heat honey over medium heat in a skillet, mix in nuts and squeeze juice from an orange slice and stir through. 
Top the peaches with honey glaze and top with a spoonful of goat cheese.  
**To substitute comb honey, grill flat side of peaches first, then flip, cut a slice of comb honey into the hole left by the pit, grill for an additional 2 minutes until comb honey starts to melt bubble. 
Top with a few nuts, goat cheese, and squeeze an orange slice over the peach.  


Go Savory! 
Jessica, a fellow honey adventurer, encourages you to think beyond the sweet accompaniments. She tops a bite-size cracker with a number of savory toppings, and then finishes it off with a slice of comb honey. Using Jessica’s base recipe below, what would you add or change to make this your new favorite snack?!

Ingredients

  • Olive oil and sea salt crackers
  • Cream cheese
  • Smoked salmon
  • Whole grain mustard
  • Cayenne pepper
  • Two Hives comb honey

Mix a tablespoon of whole grain mustard with cayenne pepper to taste. 
Top the cracker with a smear of the mustard mixture, a dollop of cream cheese, smoked salmon, and finish with a slice of comb honey. 

Jessica says “it’s so delicious and savory, and I love using comb honey because it’s more dense and I can really taste the flavor in the bite.” Jessica-thank you for sharing the savory side of honey with us!


The Sweet Side
We’re lovin’ this little sweet side. Rachel shared her own cracker recipe that will add a touch of sweetness to the savory. 

Ingredients

  • Water Crackers
  • Goat cheese (Rachel raves about Humboldt Fog!)
  • Your favorite fruits (Rachel recommends slices of fig or peaches or blueberries)
  • Two Hives comb honey
  • Cracked pepper 

Prepare: Top crackers with cheese, a spoonful of preserves, a slice of comb honey, and then hit it with some freshly ground pepper to taste!


Savory + Spicy!
Gina, one of our hive tour guides and the gal that holds our shop together, shared this spicy salmon marinade recipe and I love it because it demonstrates the culinary range of comb honey!  

Ingredients

  • 2 Tablespoon olive oil
  • 1 lb Whole Foods Teriyaki Chili marinated salmon (or use your favorite Teriyaki Sauce as a marinade!)
  • 2 cups Mixed greens
  • 1 small Tomato
  • ½ Avocado
  • Two Hives comb honey
  • Korean BBQ chickpeas

Prepare the salmon: Heat olive oil in a skillet over medium heat. 
Add the salmon, it should sizzle when you add it. 
This gives the fish a nice caramelized crunch on the outside. 
Cook to your liking (Gina prefers hers rare!)
Prepare your salad: mix the greens and top with sliced tomatoes and avocados. 
Plate the salad and salmon.
Add a slice of honey comb on top of the hot salmon.
Sprinkle Korean BBQ chickpeas on the salad for extra spice, and some crunch. (**If you don’t have these on hand, walnuts are a great substitute).

Gina loves how in this dish, “the honey comb will slightly melt on the crispy crunch of the salmon, it’s divine!”


Always End with a Sweet
Sam, another one of our hive tour guides, made this spin on strawberry shortcake with her mom. I love the idea of taking a traditional dessert and elevating the flavor and texture with a bit of comb honey!

Ingredients

  • A pack of sugared biscuits (**store bought, or you can substitute with some shortcake).
  • 1 pack of organic strawberries (bee friendly!)
  • 2 tablespoons sugar
  • 1 pint whipping cream
  • Two Hives comb honey

Prepare strawberry mixture: Slice strawberries and sprinkle with 2 tablespoons of sugar in a bowl and stir. 
Let the fruit sit for 20 mins to get the juices flowing from the fruit 
For the whipped cream: whip the cream and sugar together with a hand mixer until it’s whipped to the thickness of your liking! 
Place the cut biscuit or shortcake in a bowl and add the strawberry mixture and juice from the bowl.
Spoon a dollop of whipped cream.
Finish with a few slices of comb honey!
