6 Unique and Easy Comb Honey Hors d’oeuvres Recipes

sixrecipes
I know I said I was done parading out the comb honey recipes, but my series of recipe posts just wouldn’t be complete without one final roundup!
So without further ado, here are the six comb honey appetizer recipes I’ve shared in my mini-series of quick and easy noms using this unique and classy – and underrepresented! – culinary ingredient.
Recap for those of you just joining us: I have mentioned in earlier posts that when Jonathan and I set out to make some fancy hors d’oeuvres using comb honey, we were surprised at the lack of recipes on the internet for such a unique, tasty and classy looking natural health food.
Every recipe or “how to” blog post on comb honey just said to eat it plain, spread it on toast, or serve with cheese. BO-RING! So we were determined to introduce to the interwebs some new, original and innovative uses for comb honey in an hors d’oeuvre setting.
As detailed in my blog post Comb Honey – The Ultimate Raw Honey:
Comb honey is basically a chunk of the hexagonal shaped beeswax cells of the honeycomb, each cell filled with raw honey, exactly at the bees packed it.
Because the honey is still in the comb and has not been touched by man, it contains every bit of pollen, enzymes, propolis, vitamins, amino acids, antioxidants, minerals, and aromatics that the bees produced in the hive. There’s no filtering, processing or rearranging of the raw product by human hands.

6 Unique and Easy Comb Honey Hors d’oeuvres Recipes

1. Sweet and Spicy Comb Honey Shrimp Wraps

This recipe is kind of an in-your-face comb honey treat. A sizeable chunk of comb honey not only showcases your novel ingredient, and picks up an average shrimp lettuce wrap to something far more decadent, but the sweetness of the honey offsets the spiciness of the shrimp! Check it out!

2. Comb Honey Stuffed Bacon Wrapped Dates

This particular recipe was inevitable. Jonathan and I have made bacon wrapped dates stuffed with nuts before, and we figured stuffing them with honey would be a stroke of genius. And boy, was it! The honey worked to caramelize the date and the bacon, making it more candy than appetizer! You really MUST give it a try!

3. Herbed Goat Cheese Hor d’oeuvres with Comb Honey

This particular recipe was a no-brainer for me, since I am a sucker for herbed goat cheese, and it pairs well with sweet and savory taste accompaniments. So when looking for foods to pair in an appetizer with comb honey, this is one of the first places my brain went!

4. Yogurt and Comb Honey Parfait Shooters

This particular parfait recipe is actually a creation from our friend Diego. Diego is currently going to school taking courses in culinary and hospitality arts (though he majors in art) and this is his recipe! These make for fun, eye catching appetizer, that would serve well at a “choose your own topping” appetizer station! Thanks for the fun recipe Diego!

5. Glazed Pecans and Comb Honey Apricot Hors d’oeuvres

This particular apricot and cream cheese recipe is one of the very first hors d’oeuvres that Jonathan and I put in our family recipe book. We were at a formal event where one of the tray passed hors d’oeuvres was a dried apricot, topped with cream cheese and a candied walnut. So we decided to put a little twist on our classic appetizer of choice for our comb honey creations! I think it came out nicely, and I honestly can’t tell which I prefer – the original, or the Freeman family comb honey twist!

6. Peanut Butter and Comb Honey Puff Pastries With Lavender

This was our first idea for utilizing comb honey in an appetizer, mostly because my favorite pairing with honey is peanut butter. This is an elegant twist on a good old fashioned peanut butter and honey sandwich. The lavender adds a nice subtle flavor to the pastry, and a dash of color to the plate. This is a good, homey, comfort food of an hors d’oeuvre, and one of my favorites from the batch of recipes we threw together. These are quick, easy, eye-pleasing and tasty!
