What do I do with a honeycomb?

I bought a jar of honey with an actual piece of honeycomb in it. It looks beautiful but I have no idea what to do with it. Is it edible? Any suggestions?

  1. Yes, the honeycomb is perfectly edible. In fact, at the Pike Place Market in Seattle, there are vendors who sell chunks of honeycomb to snack on, then chew on the beeswax (which really has no flavor by itself, but is an interesting texture.)

    1. Yes, it's definitely edible. You can break it up a bit and spread a little on your buttered toast, along with the honey. Makes for a nice crunch.
