1. Dessert Wine. It’s sweet, not cloying, if you get a good bottle, and is a perfect way to cap off a delicious meal. Banyuls, an unusual red dessert wine, goes great with chocolate desserts. 2. Homemade Baklava, the sticky sweet Middle Eastern pastry is a far cry from the usual honey cake. Ramp it up a notch with honey from small producers, and keep in mind: the darker the honey, the more flavorful. Epicurious.com has a great recipe Dale Raben will prepare for Pickled next week. 3. Make Your Own Meade Kit – Yes, you can make this honey wine at home. And so can your host with this kit. Become a brewmaster of this fermented honey beverage. Buy a kit to give your host with some delicious honey. 4. Honey Serving Pots – Forget the honey, give its accoutrements. This honey server will reduce stickiness. 5. Homemade Spiced Almonds – Put in a celophane bag and tie with pretty ribbon. See recipe below.
