This gorgeous hunk of pork gets a generous smearing of our wild honey from the Sundarbans. The mellow caramel flavour complements the salty, fatty belly in a sticky goodness mess.
about the honey
Sundarbans Honey is our prime wild variety that demands a certain amount of understanding of the livelihood of the people who risk their lives everyday to bring you the best. Moulis or indigenous local honey-collectors venture deep into the forest to collect and store the best that nature has to offer. The honey accumulated by the wild honeybees (Apis dorsata) is harvested following a laborious and time-consuming process. What you taste is a fruit of labour, wisdom, risk and the terroir of Sundarbans.
|Sundarbans Honey is deep-amber in colour.
|store the opened jar in a dark, moist-free place away from direct sunlight. If the temperature drops a bit, the honey might crystallize, which is normal; gentle heat will bring it back to a more liquidy consistency
what you can cook with it
Sundarban honey is characteristically forgiving: pair it in a salad, morning smoothie or tea. Our favourite though is a good smear on a fatty piece of fresh meat in a marinade.
