Unlike the runny processed honey you'll find in grocery stores, genuine manuka honey from New Zealand is creamy, opaque and full of botanical depth. Even the most aromatic wildflower honeys don't come close to its multifaceted depth of flavor. This wildflower and manuka blend has a soft floral sweetness, smooth, melt-in-your-mouth texture and rich golden hue. It contains more than 200 compounds not found in other honey, which are widely thought to give it antibacterial and antimicrobial properties. It is not only used as an ingredient but also eaten on its own for its purported health benefits. Three Peaks uses the Unique Manuka Factor (UMF) system, which tests for a broad range of compounds unique to manuka honey; that way, you can be sure you're getting the real thing.
Use this decadent honey in recipes that showcase its flavor, not hidden in the depths of a dessert or marinade. Dissolve a spoonful into herbal teas to complement the botanical notes, or stir it into simple oatmeal. Serve it with dairy for a mild yet creamy backdrop to its bold flavor: Drizzle it over toast with whole-milk ricotta, or add a dollop to yogurt or ice cream. Or simply drizzle over an apple or ripe stone fruit. Manuka honey is also an amazing addition to cheese plates, especially a ripe triple-crème brie or a nutty Stilton blue cheese.
