Yogurt and Comb Honey Parfait Shooters

This is yet another creation in my mini-series of comb honey hors d’oeuvres! I mentioned in an earlier post 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.
Over the next week or so I’m going to be posting some of our comb honey hors d’oeuvre recipes that we’ve had a blast dreaming up, creating and tasting.
This particular parfait recipe is actually a creation from our friend Diego. When we’d set out with comb honey in hand to make dream up these recipes, Jonathan and I invited over two of our local geek-tastic friends, Diego and Williams. We all put our heads together and tried to come up with some fun, eye-pleasing and (most importantly!) tasty appetizers. Diego is currently going to school taking courses in culinary and hospitality arts (though he majors in art) and this is his recipe!


You Will Need:

Tall Shot Glasses
Plain Yogurt
Graham Cracker Crumbles
Comb Honey
Various Toppings of Your Choosing – (We mixed it up using dried cranberries, toasted almonds, and glazed pecans.)
In a large bowl, mix your yogurt and milk together to a consistency you prefer for the shooter. Diego used about 50/50. You can also sweeten the shooters with honey if you want it to be a sweeter treat. Carefully spoon the yogurt mixture into the individual shot glasses. Sprinkle each top with graham cracker crumbles, and then spoon your toppings on top. As the last step, cut out a chunk of comb honey and use as the last topping ingredient.
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!


Keep an eye out for more comb honey hors d’oeuvre recipes over the following weeks!

    This is the first thing you’ve written about that I don’t think I’d try. I’ve never liked the idea of ‘liquid yogurt’. Take the milk out and just make some little mini parfaits for me, and NOM!!

      Hahaha, I prefer my yogurt to be a little more on the firm side myself, but these were YUMMY!
