Returning from the Jenolan Caves the whole family stopped at The Lolly Bug in Little Hartley. On the side of the busy road, there is bright yellow ladybug in front of a funny wooden house.
Push the door and find a kid’s paradise: a very large lolly store! But the parent’s aren’t forgotten either :) These guys sell Australian products such as honey, vinegars, sauces and jams.
This is what I bought (from left to right):
Huntley berry farm Blackberry vinegar, Huntley berry farm Strawberry vinegar and Huntley berry farm Boysenberry vinegar. We tried the blackberry one on our dinner salads and it was delicious. I cannot wait to use them in sauces or for deglazing sauces.
Mudgee Honey Haven’s Creamed honey: so tasty and creamy. I find it fantastic that depending on the season and on where the beehive is situated, honey is so different, liquid or creamy, light coloured or dark. The white creamy honey is one of my favourites. My brothers Louis and Pierre back in France make a batch of creamy white most years and the whole family is enjoying it all year round (except me that is… when I am in Australia…). This Mudgee Honey replaces my family’s honey very well!
Honey Australia Raw Organic Honey is a dark and flavoursome honey which I really like. It is quite cloudy and syrupy. It will be delicious in our “yoghurt-walnut-honey-cinnamon-dessert”.
Honey from the Gourmet range: lavender and cinnamon. I loved them both. And believe me I was very doubtful… I don’t really like flavoured honey I like the subtle flavours of natural honey depending on the flowers around the hives. But these two are gorgeous. There are a few lavender flowers in the mini jar. Their taste pops in your mouth, it’s delicious. I prefer to use the cinnamon as a topping on my honeyed desserts.
