Honey and Cheese
What kind of cheese is good with honey?
We find that honey pairs well with almost any type of cheese so why don’t you give it a try? Some interesting combinations include:
- Ricotta drizzled with honey served for breakfast or even as a dessert. This pairing is fantastic with figs, apricots or berries and you could even add a salty element by serving Prosciutto on the side.
- Brie is lovely with a splash of honey and a garnish of nuts.
- Blue cheese is heavenly with a trickle of honey. If you usually shy away from strong blues, this is the time to be more adventurous. The sweet honey will mellow out the strong flavour.
- Parmigiano-Reggiano and other aged cheeses, such as sharp cheddar, are also delicious with a generous drizzle of honey.
- Fresh goats cheese and other tangy, acidic cheeses (like feta) are subdued with a splash of honey.
Here are our favourites:
Blue Cheese, Honey and Crushed Pecans
This is an unusual combination, but tastes delicious, served with a selection of Stockan's Oatcakes and it makes a fantastic appetiser or sharing platter.
Prep time: 5 mins and serves 8
- 500g blue cheese (we used a good quality Stilton)
- ¼ cup honey
- ¼ cup chopped pecans
- Selection of Stockan's Oatcakes
Place the blue cheese on a serving platter and just before serving, drizzle the honey over the cheese and sprinkle with the pecans.
Goat’s Cheese and Honey Comb
We topped some of our Oat Thins and MINI Oatcakes with fresh goat’s cheese and honey comb.
