Have you heard the saying that for a great chocolate dessert, one needs to use a superior quality chocolate? Its a no-brainier of course! Same goes with honey. The taste and quality of honey greatly determines the flavour of your honey based dessert.
I’m a Manuka honey fan, though I have to admit it is expensive. Especially the ones with a higher grading. It is also regarded as a superfood with great medicinal properties. I am more interested in the flavour though which is so uniquely delicious. It is more intense than regular honey, almost close to the taste of caramel. And it’s so worth it!
You are welcome to try this out with regular honey is you don’t have access to Manuka honey but the flavour would be a lot subtle in that case.
