Do you use fresh honeycomb in your recipes? I think visually it is very appealing, as well as nutritionally. You don’t need a lot but it is a great way to add a little bit of sweetness.  Try this beet and honeycomb salad and see what you think.

Beets are combined with leafy greens of our choice in this recipe and then it is the toppings that make the dish.  We start with a little bit of crumbled goat or nut cheese, add some edible flower petals like nasturtiums, chive blossoms, pansies, or borage, and top with a small chunk of honeycomb.

Here’s the recipe:

Just all that color makes me want to eat it!  You know you will feel virtuous. It’s nearly a rainbow in one meal! 

And as you eat the honeycomb, remember our bees and all the work that went into it. Let’s make sure we have some bee-friendly plants in our gardens to support them. They too love herbs so think of lavender, thyme, oregano, borage, rosemary, mint.  Edible plants that you and the bees can enjoy. I know our lavender and rosemary are always a-buzzin’ when they are in flower.
