The HONEY CONNOISSEUR Selecting, Tasting, and Pairing Honey, With a Guide to More than 30 Varietals C Marina Marchese & Kim Flottum Illustrations by Elara Tanguy DEDICATION FROM KIM… Marina certainly is the inspiration for this work We have worked together on projects in the past and this was the next step for each of us Her focus is on the magic of how and why honey comes to be Mine shows where and when honey is born Each of us following a passion has produced what you now read Passions, though, are fueled by many fires My other passion, my best friend and my greatest source of support and balance, Kathy, made this book, and everything, possible Thanks Kath FROM MARINA… Without Kim, this book would not be complete Without Vic, there would not be time to write it Without Becky, no one would ever read it Without the bees, there would be no honey Without beekeepers, there would be no passion Without honey lovers, there would be no reason A heart-full of thanks to all those who came on the journey and have embraced this sweet work CONTENTS CHAPTER 1: La Dolce Vita CHAPTER 2: Terroir: A Portrait of the Land CHAPTER 3: The Honey Plants CHAPTER 4: The Not-So-Sweet Side of Honey CHAPTER 5: Tasting Honey CHAPTER 6: Pairing Honey with Cheese and Food Glossary Index References Y yeasts, 15, 138, 157 Yemen, 124–125 SOME REFERENCES ON PLANTS THAT PRODUCE HONEY There are a handful of good books and resources that will give you all the information you are looking for about honey producing plants Books Louisiana Honey Plants, Dale Pollet, LSU Ag Center, LA Coop Extension Service Plants For Beekeeping In Canada and the northern States, Jane Ramesy, IBRA Weeds Of California and Other Western States, Vol I & II, DiTomaso & Healy, CA Weed Science Society Wetland Plants of Western Wasington and Northwestern Oregon, Sarah Cooke, Seattle Audubon Society American Honey Plants, Frank Pellett, Dadant & Son (reprints available) Weeds Of The Northeast, Richard H Uva, Joseph C Neal, Joseph M DiTomaso, Comstock Publishing Texas Honey Plants, Sanborn & Scholl, Dept Of Ent., College Station, TX Honey Plants Of California, M.C Richter, CA, Experiment Station Weeds Of The South, Bryson and DeFelice, Univ GA Press Silvics Of Forest Trees, H A Fowells, USDA Handbook 271 Honey Plants Of North America, John Lovell, A I Root Company (reprint available) Insect Pollination Of Cultivated Crop Plants, S E McGregor, USDA Hand book 496 (reprint available) The USDA Invasive Plant List Invasive Plants list from various states, and the USDA Plants list.gov The Internet There’s certainly a wealth of information and misinformation on the Internet How are you to know if the information you’re accessing is accurate? We have a rule when using the Internet: The source needs to verify itself with scientific references, which themselves have to be easily verified It’s not a foolproof system, but it’s proven to be a reliable system for us Start with Wikipedia We advise you to start a search on this site when looking for plant information because the sources are plentiful and often most of what you need can be found there Don’t assume, however, that Wikipedia is perfect, because sometimes it’s more opinion than fact A good Wikipedia entry always lists the sources used to present the data Always reliable is the USDA plants database: plants.usda.gov But always check further, usually with a University reference Of course you may want additional information on a particular plant If you have succumbed to our descriptions of some of these varietal honeys, perhaps becoming a beekeeper is in your future and growing one of these plants to produce the honey is interesting For instance, one avocado tree can provide much in the way of that honey for a hive in the back yard and garden forums can provide insights that sound science sometimes overlooks A good site to look at is: forums gardenweb.com, where personal experience can often outweigh hard science So be sure to check out sources like those as well For more information on honey tasting visit www.americanhoneytastingsociety.com Photo Credits Photographs © copyright: Africa Studio p 132, p 181;
