50g butter

150g Waimete Co Manuka Honey 

1/2 tsp cinnamon 

1 small pinch clove powder 

Honeycomb 

330g sugar

120g Waimete Co Honey – recommend Manuka or Pure Honey Squeeze bottle 

120g light corn syrup 

125g water 

3tsp bicarbonate soda 

Crepes  

  1. Have all the ingredients lukewarm, melt the butter and combine all the liquids together. 
  2. Combine all the dry ingredients into a bowl and progressively whisk all the liquid ingredients into the bowl. 
  3. Finish by blending the whole batter with a stick blender to harmonise the mixture. 
  4. Rest for at least 2 hours. 
  5. When ready: cook in a crepe pan. 

Honey Pear and Apple

  1. Peel and dice the fruits about 15mm. 
  2. Heat a frying pan and add the butter until it starts to brown a little bit. 
  3. Add the apple and pear dice and cook for about 5 minutes until the fruit gets a little bit tender. 
  4. Add in the honey and cool for another 5 minutes until it starts to reduce and look a little bit sticky. 
  5. Add the roasted walnuts and the spices 
  6. Keep aside. 

Honeycomb 

  1. Place everything in a pot except the bicarbonate soda.
  2. Cook to 175℃ (until the golden caramel gets more to a brown tone) 
  3. Whisk in the bicarbonate soda and spread on a tray and let it cool down. 
  4. Tip, once you have a golden caramel (160℃) lower the heat of the stove to a low setting. 
  5. This will prevent you from burning your caramel once you add the bicarbonate soda. 

Plating 

  1. Place a crepe flat on a plate, add 3 full spoons of the cooked fruits. 
  2. Close the crepe like a coin pouch and stick a skewer across to keep it closed.

  4. Place on the plate with some honeycomb chunks and sprinkle some warm  honey on top. 
  5. Serve as is, or with some ice cream.
