One of the things I love about honey, or using honey in recipes is that it has terroir: Its flavor reflects the blossoming flowers of the specific region in which it was produced. Some honeys are thick, dark, and brooding; others are light in color and bright on the tongue. Navigating your way through the vast landscape of honey varietals involves a lifetime of tasting. A honey appropriate for pairing with an artisan cheese might be very different than a honey for baking with, so taste different types, take notes, and try different pairings. Look for raw, unfiltered, unprocessed honey. Farmers’ markets are typically a great place to find honey producers who can talk you through the nuances of different varietals.
