Spring Recipe: Feta and Honey
Maybe not so pretty, but such a lovely vehicle for our favorite bee by-product. It might make a bit of a mess in your cooking vessel, but REALLY: so worth it. You could use pita bread, but a rough, edgy cracker with some personality of its own is what you want. Sit outside in the softly warm late afternoon with the spring bees making their happy noise and have a snack—and Pinky’s Paloma, too.
FETA AND HONEY
1 -6 oz piece of Greek Feta
2 T olive oil
1 T honey
Freshly ground black pepper
Triangles of toasted Greek pita bread and/or your best crackers
Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Place feta in a small casserole a little larger than the cheese and cover with the oil. Bake about 8 minutes or until the cheese is soft to the touch.
Preheat broiler. Heat honey in a small pan until melted and brush over the top of the cheese. Place under the broiler and broil until the top of the cheese is brown and has begun to bubble. Season with freshly ground black pepper. Serve immediately with crackers and/or pita.
