These cute little jars of Cata Gourmet honeys came in our Despana Basket. One was Heather Honey, which I didn’t open yet, but we tried the Chestnut Honey with Walnuts and the Chestnut Honey with Hazelnuts.

I was so excited about having these with the Goat Brie I got last week, but it ended up being a disappointment. The hazelnuts seemed rancid, and even though the walnuts were fine, it was just anti-climactic. I was expecting some kind of heightened synergy between the nuts and the honey, maybe imparting flavor on each other, but you’d get the same thing if you just poured honey on nuts. You might as well use your favorite honey.

Sure looks pretty though….
