We use jar upon jar of honey chez H is for Home. We use it a lot for making flapjacks and it’s delicious at breakfast on hot buttered toast, swirled into plain Greek yoghurt or in a cockle-warming bowl of porridge in the winter. The first thing that caught my eye about this Helt honey was it’s multi-award winning labelling & packaging – isn’t it great?
Helt honey is produced in Denmark by Englishman, Anthony Lee and there are currently 13 ‘flavours’ from which to choose:
- City – apricot, herbal, malt, raisin, caramel, molasses
- Heather – earthy, hop, oak, smoky and whiskey aromas finishing off with a lilac, and a clear caramel and walnut aroma
- Spring – strong vanilla aroma, then a fig aroma finishing off with a perfumed rose aroma
- Summer – berry and elderflower aroma, then a dominating vanilla aroma and a floral note at the very end
- Late summer – citrus aroma, taken over by a caramel aroma which lingers, with a slight strawberry and cherry aroma at the end
- Honey with ginger – very aromatic; dominated by ginger, woody, menthol and citrus notes supported by a molasses and vanilla note
- Honey with liquorice – first you’re hit by caramel, molasses and malt; then you taste the more toasted, liquorice, herbal and vanilla aromas
- Honey with cinnamon – dominating fruity aroma with a great citrus note complimented by a slight vanilla aroma
- Honey with raspberry – perfumed, raspberry, rose and vanilla
- Honey with cocoa nibs – fruity, chocolatey, vanilla, freshness, slightly alcoholic
- Honey with chilli – Orange comes first, then toasted, smoked, bell-pepper and tomato flavour, finishing off with black pepper and peach flavour
- Honey with cranberry – vanilla aroma with a berry note and a slight rose aroma
- Honey with sea buckthorn – dominating fruity aroma, with a great citrus note complimented by a slight vanilla aroma
I’ll have a jar of each please!
