Doing a honey taste test will help you discover the distinctive flavor differences between honey varieties and you can choose the one that pleases you most in recipes such as this one. It only takes a few minutes.
When you open the jar, notice the aroma of the honey, which is strongest at this point. Spoon out a small amount of the honey, less than one-eighth teaspoon, and taste it slowly, noticing how the flavor spreads in your mouth. Notice, too, the aftertaste, which is an important component in the flavor of honey.
