Honeycomb in Calgary

sackman Dec 10, 2009 02:03 PM

I has this fantastic appetizer at SALT in Vancouver that I'm going to try to duplicate, but I need honeycomb. It was simply honeycomb paired with a mild blue cheese and a good shirz (I think). Does anyone know where I can find honeycomb??

    Golden Lane Honey at the Calgary Farmer's Market should have some. They're more or less across from Phil & Sebastian's.

    Or you can try their website: www.goldenlanefoods.com - they carry it there for sure: 0.40lbs for $8.

    Thanks for reminding me. I'd been meaning to pick some up myself for a similar pairing.

      +1 for Golden Lane Honey at CFM - they're next to 'Going Nuts' iirc - which probably has some spiced nuts that would complement the cheese. Don't know if Sylvan Star does a blue but they probably do and they're right next to Phil & Sebastian's.

      we have tons- I am not sure where my partner picked it up but I think it was at CFM. Amazing price too- Alberta is a huge honey producer and if anything it should be easier to find here than just about anywhere.

        really $8/.4 of a pound. Honey comb requires no processing/ unlike honey which requires separation etc... So why are people paying more for it than for honey?
