The Honey Company’s Candelón Honey is best when used for bread making, or enjoyed on a piece of toast. It provides moisture and binding to flours, which is particularly great when baking gluten-free, like in the case of these yucca biscuits.
Candelón honey comes from Candelón (Acacia skleroxyla Tuss.), a tree from the mimosa family widely found in the northern borderline between Haiti and the Dominican Republic. It is endemic from the island of Hispaniola. Candelón has bee-friendly tiny white flowers that bloom approximately from April through July. Its wood is highly appreciated as it is very resistant to the elements.
