I am a honey girl. When served waffles or pancakes, I never choose syrup. Honey on bananas. Honey mixed with peanut butter for a great dip. Even honey as a sweetner in my baking goods. Wait, I forgot dipping my finger in the honey jar! Love it.
When I heard about Don Victor Honey at Walmart I had to try it! You know why? The honeycomb is found in the jars. I raced to the Hispanic Aisle at found my Don Victor Orange Blossom Honey near the baking items. Their honey is raw, filtered, not heated or processed in any way. Just the way I like it!
Did you know that honeycomb can be eaten? I totally did not! It’s not hard like you would think, but gooey and a bit chewy. Spread it only a warm slice of bread and try it out!
I wanted to first test it in a honey cookie recipe I have been eyeing. My idea was to add the honeycomb on top! I love to give my cookies away and so while I was at Walmart I also grabbed a Pioneer Woman plate that was very affordable and festive for the holidays.
