During my meanderings around Prahran Market I've come upon many interesting things and this is latest find is no different.
Much like Miellerie, Heritage Honey also hails from Tasmania but it is based in the Lenah Valley, south of Hobart. Only in operation since 2003, they now have 240 hives and are Tasmania's only certified organic honey producer.
The honey I'm looking at today is their natural comb Leatherwood.
On lifting the lid, there's that unmistakable aroma of Leatherwood, there's a certain spiciness in its scent.
The honeycomb is quite fine and surprisingly delicate and when eaten along with the honey adds a creaminess to its mouth feel. It's certainly not the indigestible element that some may lead you to believe.
What did surprise me is how clear the honey is - what I'm used to with Leatherwood is a cloudy quasi-white coloured appearance. Perhaps that is a reaction to the filtering process.
It's a most interesting honey and certainly would be a talking point over breakfast - served on toasted fruit bread it's hard to beat.
