Folks are starting to ask when will the 2014 tupelo honey be available. Recent weather in the Florida panhandle has been very wet and cooler than normal. Based on past experience, this means that the tupelo trees will not bloom until late April and the nectar flow will carry over into early May. The tupelo honey would then be harvested in mid-May and should be available for sale soon thereafter. Keep your fingers crossed for a bumper crop -- we are overdue for a good year.
My nephew was visiting this past weekend, and I needed a quick and easy snack to keep him happy until dinner. I thought of this combination on the fly, and it was amazingly good: cut a fresh, crusty french baguette into small slices, spread some plain goat cheese on each piece, and then add a drizzle of tupelo honey. The combination of flavors is simply delicious. I made a plate of a dozen pieces, and they were gone in a couple minutes. (Tip: remove the goat cheese from the fridge and let soften for a few minutes before spreading.)
