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.)
re: Jim Leff
Loquat Honey is a best seller in Italy as well
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.
