In mid-summer, the Leatherwood throughout the mighty West coast rainforest of Tasmania begins to blossom. It is as if white filigree lace made of a billion tiny flowers has settled like a mantle across this wild land. From January's magnificent flowering comes Leatherwood Honey - the extraordinary wilderness honey renowned for its piquant scent and its complex lingering palate.

Blue Hills Honey's Leatherwood Honey is produced by bees living in the heart of Tasmania's Tarkine Wilderness. One of the rarest of honeys, Leatherwood Honey is found only in Tasmania and comes from the pristine temperate rainforests of the Tarkine (home of some of the world's cleanest air and water). Blue Hills is the only apiary in the heart of this pristine environment.

Blue Hills Honey employs a cold extraction process which ensures that all wholesome, natural components of the honey are retained. Cold extracted Blue Hills Honey is an unpasteurized, low moisture honey that "candies" or crystallizes very quickly. The candied honey has a very fine texture and the consistency of butter, and is just as delicious and versatile as liquid honey. To liquify candied honey, simply remove the lid and place the jar in hot water for a few minutes. If you prefer, you can microwave small amounts of this exquisite honey briefly on 'low' to liquify.

Black Garlic Barbecue Sauce
Break out of your grilling routine and try something a little different from the usual tomato-y barbecue sauce! This sweet-sour-savory sauce, inspired by Asian sauces and marinades, is wonderful on everything from seafood and poultry to beef and pork.

Use a little as a marinade and don't forget to brush the sauce on as it grills. Don't worry if it chars a little - it's even more delicious that way!

Iceberg Salad with Fennel, Feta and Black Walnuts
To some, Iceberg lettuce is rather 'retro,' recalling bland, uninspired salads of the 50's & 60's. For many, though, it's always been something of a guilty pleasure - not as hip or trendy as mesclun or arugula. But iceberg lettuce has never quite gone away; it obviously has something that continues to appeal to many people.

Why deny it?
Iceberg lettuce is satisfying - mild in flavor, crisp & cool. It's a great supporting player for other more assertive, distinctive flavors, like salty feta cheese, thinly-sliced fennel and robust black walnut oil.

Cranachan is a dessert native to the Ireland and Scotland. It's made of a few simple ingredients and is easy to make, yet it's incredibly rich and indulgent. All Celtic countries seem to have a dessert that's a variation on this theme. It's probable that the English classic, trifle, evolved from this tradition. It certainly shares most of the same elements - sweetened whipped cream, some form of grain or cake, fresh fruit - and the local firewater, in this case, Irish whiskey!

If you prefer an alcohol-free cranachan, use a few drops of vanilla essence instead.
