My newest favorite breakfast

English muffin with orange blossom honey, banana, grapes

This is my newest favorite breakfast.  I used to toast English muffins and put crunchy peanut butter on them, but since I went to Savannah and bought honey from the Savannah Bee Company, I am totally addicted to their Orange Blossom honey.

the best honey in the whole world

They also have Tupelo, Black Sage, Sourwood, Winter White, just to name the ones I have tried.  Tasting the differences in the Savannah Bee Company’s honey is a treat in itself.  It was like going into a fine winery to have a wine tasting.

As soon as we walked into the store on River Street, I saw the testers lined up.  And I was in love!  After reading about it once upon a long time ago, the differences in the flavor of honey had been something that I had wanted to try out.  It was totally the experience I thought it would be… and if you are ever in Savannah or Charleston, look up the Savannah Bee Company and do a little honey tasting.  But in the meantime, check out their web site (click on their name in bold above) and read about why honey tastes different.  I couldn’t believe the difference in the taste between them!

My very favorite is the Orange Blossom.  Doesn’t that look buttery?  It has a buttery, citrus flavor.  I think I could just tip it up and drink it out of this bottle.

delicious honey

The breakfast isn’t that hard to make.  Here are some easy directions:  Cut the English muffin in half, toast, then add a bit of butter.  Pour honey over muffin (although I have thought about pouring it all over everything… it’s that good).

Start with a fresh English muffin, whole wheat

While the muffin toasts, cut up a banana or strawberries, get out the grapes, kiwi, blueberries, whatever fruit suits your fancy.

(Please do not enlarge the picture of my little toaster oven. It is dirty; it needs cleaned; who wants to volunteer for this job?)

 

Normally I only use butter unless I forgot to set it out to soften. This is good too.

begin the pour

 

 

Pop out the cork on your favorite honey and try to stop yourself from pouring the whole bottle over your muffin, fruit, in your coffee or tea, all over your fingers (so good to lick off, by the way) …

keep pouring

  1. Their honey is great on pancake and crepes too… and on French yogurt “faisselle”. My favs are the orange blossom too and the tupelo. And their bottle is gorgeous! Their honey is so precious and tasty that it feels wasted if poured into tea or coffee. I prefer it pure, not diluted.
    Thanks you bees! 😉
