Sichuan Honey Oil
This recipe was created for our Around the World with Honey class for May, Australian Honey Month. Honey is such an amazing ingredient. We used to have a beehive (pre little grandies playing in the backyard) and it is quite a fascinating if not slightly dangerous process. I am always in awe of bees and what they manage to accomplish, cute little busy things that they are.
But I digress, this amazing condiment has become a favourite already. It is everything you hope a little drizzle will be, flavoursome, packs a bit of a punch and just adds that 'je n'est et quoi' to any thing you choose to drizzle it over.
