Loquat honey!!!???

  • s

In one of Jeremy Osner's great Spain reports (on the International board), there's a mention of loquat honey. I am now officially obsessed, at Chicago rabbit taco levels. Has anyone ever seen this stuff here (i.e., New York, though an online source would be welcome)?

(I thank you endlessly, Jeremy, for your wonderful postings, though I am now cursing your name for triggering a probably hopeless craving.)

  1. for all things iberian, your first move is to call The Spanish Table. 206-682-2827.

    I wouldn't be surprised if they stocked it....

      Loquat Honey is a best seller in Italy as well
      as Spain.
      It's also popular in Tomiura in the southern
      part of Chiba Japan.
      Biwa is Japanese for loquat and in Tomiura
      they have a shop called the biwa club
      which has about 500 different items made with
      the fruit or the leaves which makes a great tea.
