Hawaiian white honey is absolutely amazing. I generally don't use a lot of honey in food and beverage prep, but after discovering Rare Hawaiian Organic White Honey from Volcano Island Honey Company I am changing my ways.
I originally purchased this white honey at my local Whole Foods Market. It was a part of a gift for someone who loves to drink tea with honey. White honey seemed a bit more unique than regular honey so I bought the product on a whim. Glad I did. Days after giving the tea set, I was told I absolutely had to try the honey so I did.
The first thing I observed was that the honey was of course white instead of the amber or golden color found in typical honey. Next the consistency of white honey is much thicker than other honeys. The consistency is almost that of a rich cake frosting. This honey is completely spreadable. The scent of white honey is almost floral. Then there is the taste, its mild, less sweet and tropical tasting.
White honey gets its personality from Kiawe trees on the Big Island of Hawaii. Its the only place where white honey is cultivated, which is why its rare.
An 8 oz jar of Rare Hawaiian Organic White Honey costs about $7 and is well worth it. Its generally available at high-tea shops, gourmet cooking stores and organic food markets.
Whether you are looking to expand your honey horizons and just want to try something different give this honey a try. If you have good recipes calling for white honey, please add them to this forum.
