Be inspired by ♥ Heather Honey Chicken

On our recent trip to Scotland we were lucky enough to enjoy part of their spring. We had three days of 22°C and other days with snow and temperatures hovering around the freezing mark. Spring brought with it sunshine, and lots of heather. The fields were amazing and we even did a little bit of walking when the weather permitted it. I have read so much about the honey in Scotland and I can say that heather honey is wonderful. It is very different to the honey we get here. A friend of mine keeps bees, and I buy my honey from her. The latest batch is truly amazing with a wonderful depth of flavour. As you cannot bring honey into South Africa I decided to make do with ‘second’ best and purchased some Scottish Wild Flowers in a mix of salt and other herbs. I used this to create my heather honey chicken dish.

Do you have a special herb mix you use?

    • Honey is the one thing most countries will not allow to be transported over the border as it contains pollen which may be harmful to the environment somehow?! We loved Scotland 🙂
