I fell in love at first bite with Smiley's new honey flavor! The flavor that results when the bees feed on coriander (cilantro) flowers can best be described as exquisite! Like Tupelo, coriander honey is so good that it should be eaten on its own on such things as toast or homemade biscuits.
This is a very special honey. I am trying to visualize what it would be like standing in a field of Cilantro. The smell would be intoxicating. A plant that delivers two types of spice and when the bees forage on the flower, OMG! Such a pleasant, surprising tasting honey, a bit herbal and a zing of spice that is so pleasant. I must have tried 20 different honey types this past year, and Coriander honey is a front runner. It's up there just behind Tupelo. People really do need to taste honey that was foraged from one source. It's a whole different kind of magic.
Amazing! The quality and taste is second to nothing I've tried.
It has a 'perfumey' taste. Is that even a word? It's edible, don't get me wrong, and I think it's very interesting! I have NINE different honey varieties I'm testing. Great fun!! The coriander just isn't as satisfying as some others. But I am enjoying it all the same--it's so different. Cheers!!
