One of the fun things we did in Savannah was visit the Honey House operated by the Savannah Bee Company. They have lots of wonderful products: artisanal honeys, candles, hand lotions and other body potions, granola bars, and an array of honey samples for tasting. I never realized that you really can tell the difference between, say, Tupelo honey and Acacia honey. And there really is a honey for everyone.
I went with the Sourwood, which no one else in my group preferred. It's kind of smokey and maple-y, and I really fell in love with that unusual flavor.
Tasting the different honeys was very educational, but the best part of the tasting bar was the snack/appetizer they were serving. It sounds a bit weird, but my word, is it delicious! I think it's the sweet/salt combination. Here's how you assemble it:
Very thin slice of Granny Smith apple . . . topped with a smear of honey . . . topped with a tiny, thin slice of sharp cheddar cheese . . . topped with a blueberry.
Once you build your little tower, you stuff it into your mouth all in one bite. Your eyes roll back in your head while you experience a few moments of nirvana. You may make a few sounds like "Mmmmmmm." Then you start arguing with your companions about who gets the next one. Seriously. They are that good. I could have eaten a whole platterful.
