Random header image... Refresh for more!

fresh honeycomb in the frame

shelborne honey

In late July, when we were staying at the Shelbourne, in Dublin, we’d have their breakfast buffet each morning. I saw something there that I’d never seen before. Fresh honeycomb in the frame (direct from the hives) with spoons to help yourself and scoop right off the frame. So Cool!

About a week later, at The Ballymaloe House, we were served Fresh Honeycomb Dipped in Chocolate as an after-dinner treat. Even Cooler!

I haven’t been able to get either thing off my mind since.

Last Saturday, Sheila invited me to go to Singh Farms (8900 E Thomas – just east of the 101 at the Thomas exit) with her. Their Farmer’s Market won’t be open until late October but their compost yard was open and they were selling herb starts, compost, bat guano, worm castings, fresh eggs …. and honey!

I wondered if they might sell fresh honeycomb in the frame. Sheila encouraged me to ask.

I did. And they do! I bought this lovely honey frame (easel not included) for $20.

You don’t have to buy an entire frame of honeycomb to make this recipe. You can purchase fresh honeycomb online HERE and have it delivered right to your door.

Chocolate Covered Fresh Honeycomb

cut off honey

I cut some of the combs out of the frame. Next, I cut that into smaller pieces, placed them on plastic wrap, and put them in the freezer for a couple of hours to make the pieces easier to dip.

Then I melted some chocolate in the microwave and dipped away!

set to dry

The chocolate-dipped morsels were put on a clean sheet of plastic wrap and refrigerated until the chocolate was set and firm.

Delicious! And Super Cool!

The only downside … it all made me miss Ireland.
