COLD-SMOKED HONEY

     Sweet, sticky, smokey honey! Choose your favourite locally sourced honey, gently cold-smoke and enjoy the delicious smokey aftertaste of smoked honey in both sweet and savoury dishes. Cold-smoking retains the natural honey components and makes a small batch, unique gourmet ingredient that is ideal for gifts and sharing with your family and friends.
