So which will you choose?
Set Honey – Creamy, indulgent and outrageously moreish
Our Soft Set Honey looks and tastes a lot like freshly made vanilla fudge. It’s fragrant and mellow, with just a whisper of grittiness and, if you’re lucky, you’ll crunch on one or two tiny sugar crystals as it dissolves on your tongue.
Try it… by the spoonful, straight from the jar! Or, if you’re a little more disciplined than us, this honey is sumptuous on wholemeal toast, crumpets or croissants.
Blossom Honey – the taste of your own back garden
Light, sweet and fragrant, Blossom Honey is our original, most locally produced, Happy Valley Honey. Only the honeybees – connoisseurs of the herbs, wildflowers and garden blooms that thrive in our little corner of Cheshire – know the secret recipe, but the resulting smooth, gentle and beautifully-balanced honey never fails to delight.
Try it… swirled into homemade ice cream or melted into a sneaky hot toddy, this multi-talented honey can do whatever you need of it. From glazed roast carrots to an indulgent rhubarb fool, the honey from your garden is an essential ingredient to go with local produce or your own home-grown fruits and vegetables.
Borage Honey - tastes exquisite. It is sweet, sharp and delicate, with notes of lemon and orange.
Try it… in marinades and dressings. Borage honey is also often used as a sweetener for tea and coffee or to replace the sugar in baking recipes. You can also chill borage honey so that it hardens to the consistency of a chewy toffee (a big hit with children) and it goes beautifully with porridge (not just because of the pleasing rhyme).
Heather Honey - Smoky, warm, woody and floral notes in a flavour as intense and unrefined as the moorlands it comes from
Try it… with blue or smoked cheese or to sweeten a strong black coffee. The flavour goes particularly well with whisky and also with ginger and a little pot of neat heather honey makes a great dip for sweet biscuits such as gingerbread. If you want to spread it on toast or bread – we think sourdough goes especially well but we haven’t yet found a bread product that isn’t improved with a generous dollop of heather honey!
