Behold: prickly pear creamed honey. This cactus is native to the Americas, but is found all over the world, and their fruit is truly a treat. It is tropical and earthy is commonly found in jam, wine, pies and for me, in margaritas! Now, it's a honey infusion!
PAIRING PRICKLY PEAR HONEY LIKE A PROExpert Honey and Cheese Pairing
I would pair this honey with sheep feta or a funky washed rind cheese.
This honey pairs well with citrus and tropical fruit - it is perfect in cocktails, and would be great on lime sorbet.
Infused honey is the result of combining honey and high quality dried herbs or other dried ingredients, plus time, love, and patience. Once the desired flavor profile is reached, we carefully strain the added ingredients.
Creamed honey is a “controlled crystallization” that allows for small crystals to make the honey spreadable instead of the larger crystals of solid, unprocessed honey.
