Monin Honeycomb Syrup

Monin Honeycomb Syrup is just one of a delicious range of flavours, used by coffee shops such as Costa Coffee and enjoyed across the country and further afield.

The bottles come in a 1l plastic size, and a 70cl glass variation which is ideal for bars, cafes and coffee shops, but can also be used at home.

Background

Not to be confused with the toffee of the same name, honeycomb is a gift from the bees. Although it understandably has similarities with standard honey – such as the same kind of sweet, floral and earthy flavour notes – honeycomb delivers a different taste experience. For many of those that have tried it, the experience is even better than honey. This is due to the honeycomb being more pure, sweeter and with a crunchier texture. 

Monin Honeycomb Syrup takes all of its best qualities, including a crunchy taste, and presents a delicious honey-based concoction. The syrup is not only ideal for an array of beverages such as cocktails and hot chocolates, but it is also a great way of adding honeycomb flavour to desserts. 

The History 

It’s impossible to know the true start point of honeycomb. Spanish cave paintings from over 9,000 years ago depict the earliest known records of beekeeping. Yet honey bee fossils exist which date back some 150 million years! A 2400 BC sun temple near Cairo highlighted the first use of beehives. Honey, and by extension honeycomb, was particularly popular with ancient Egyptians and Greeks, with it used as both food and healing medicine. 

The actual structure of the honeycomb has fascinated some people even more than its edible qualities. The honeycomb’s geometry, with its mass of hexagon-shaped cells, has been a long debated subject for centuries. Charles Darwin described the comb as “absolutely perfect in economizing labour and wax.” Scientists in recent times, however, have tried to discredit the work of honey bees by claiming the hexagonal shape is accidental. Such theories have been largely dismissed, especially by those that have directly observed the formation of honeycomb. 

Even though it has a number of advantages over standard honey, it’s fair to say honeycomb is the less popular of the two. There are two main reasons for this: availability and price. Beekeepers prefer to cultivate honey for various reasons. One of the big reasons is the reusability of the comb. The same comb can be used over and over again to collect honey, which helps save on spreading production across many harvests. Other points include the value of selling beeswax separately, the labour-intensive nature of honeycomb production (for both the beekeepers and bees), and potential waste – the comb isn’t the sturdiest structure when processed for retail – which can limit the overall yield.

Although it is expensive and not as readily available when compared to honey, honeycomb still has a place in pantries across the world. Along with its taste qualities, this natural product boasts many nutritional benefits. And even for those who don’t have access or the budget for honeycomb, people can still enjoy its flavour thanks to Monin Honeycomb Syrup! 

Recipe Idea 

Apricot and Honeycomb Cream Cupcakes

Who doesn’t love a good cupcake? They’re easy to make, delicious to eat, and appeal to all ages. This particular recipe utilises apricot and honeycomb, two flavours which work great together and elevate the humble cupcake to the next level. 

What you will need:

  • Caster sugar (200g)
  • Unsalted butter (200g)
  • Four eggs
  • Self-rising flour (200g)
  • Apricot jam (4 tbsp)
  • Three fresh apricots
  • Monin Honeycomb Syrup (60ml)
  • Fresh cream (240ml)
  • Whipped cream chargers
  • Whipped cream dispenser

- Preheat the oven to gas mark 6/200C. The recipe is enough for 24 cupcakes in total, so get a couple of 12-hole muffin tins and line these with paper cases.

- Place the butter and caster sugar in a large bowl. With an electric whisk, cream these ingredients together until the mixture becomes fluffy and light. Note: this can take up to seven minutes; patience is important for this step.

- One at a time, beat the eggs into the mixture. Once they have all been well combined, fold in the flour until it creates a smooth, soft mixture. 

- Spoon this mixture into the paper cases, although only do so until they’re half full. Now add a dollop of the apricot jam, and cover this with the rest of the cake mixture. Note: the paper cases should be approximately three-quarters full at this point. Place in the oven for 15 minutes, or until they have a springy texture and appear a nice golden-brown colour. Remove and set aside on a wire rack to cool. 

- Place the Monin Honeycomb Syrup and fresh cream into a suitable whipped cream dispenser. Attach a cream charger onto the dispenser and then shake the device energetically for a few seconds. This will produce an airy, honeycomb-infused whipped cream which should be squirted atop the cupcakes. Slice up the fresh apricots and garnish each cupcake with a slice of the fruit.
