This chewy comb honey has a wonderful flavour from the mix on summer flowers on the braes of the hills to the west of Dunkeld in Perthshire.
A group of hives normally sitting on a farm near Bridge of Earn were selected to be moved up to a small farm close to acres of ling heather in the Perthshire hills near Trochry. Some of the hives made the most of the pastures and trees nearby before they settled down to focus on the abundance of heather to be found a little up the hill. The result? A lovely mix of lime trees, clover, willowherb, heather and other summer flowers.
Cut it and put it on warm toast or on top of hot porridge, wax and all! This is also a great honey to have with cheese, on a traditional cheeseboard where it can be sliced thinly with a sharp knife, or can just be eaten as it is. The semi-set nature of this honey means it can be handled and sliced if you are careful and if the knife is warm.
