Rosemary infused smoked local honey

Posted this on the restaurant forum where I thought it might get more traction, but wanted to double up over here, since I thought this is the more apropos:

We just brought this on and it's so good, I had to post it here.

That stuff is AMAZING. I have been buying it straight from the maker, but its good to know you carry it as well Ken.

I did a bourbon and honey glazed braised Boston pork butt that was simply out of this damn world. The smokiness and sweetness it added to the meat was heavenly.
I have also used it for glazing crispy duck, which I did for Christmas day dinner this year. That was amazing as well!

Deb,

Would love to share it with you but I cook by taste versus by recipe, so usually just pull what I have from the pantry and go. About the only time I menu plan and have a set recipe is for company or family, like the venison wellington I did for Christmas Eve dinner.

And now that Im remembering it was roasted not braised. Anyway here are the general steps.
Basically brined it over night in salt water with cumin and fennel seed, apple cider vinegar (1 part vinegar to 4 parts water enough to cover boston butt) and bay leaves. Dump the brining fuild and allow the butt to reach room temperature on the counter.
Rubbed it down with a coarse smoked sea salt and garlic. Set the oven to 300 degrees and leave it in there for about 5 hours (if a 6 pound or so butt).
Combine the bourbon (about a cup) and the smoked honey together (couple of tablespoons to taste), and reduce to thicken it on the stove top. You arent looking for caramel here, just a thick liquid.
For the last hour baste the butt about every 15 mins with the bourbon and honey.

You want an internal temp of about 160-170. Pull it out and allow it to rest on the counter while you keep basting with bourbon and honey. A nice crust should have developed.
You can shred or carefully slice for serving.

The people who make the honey also make this extremely spicy mustard. I also did a butt with that as a rub, it came out amazing as well.
I eat, therefore I am.

Sorry I'll miss you Deb - I'm taking my kids down to see their grandparents for my Mom's birthday.

PS, we have their Bourbon mustard as well, and though it has some kick, I wouldn't call it extremely spicy, so perhaps Doug is referring to one of their other mustards. They did admit to some batch variation (something they are working on) and that the mustard seed needs some time to "settle down" so they have been holding back subsequent batches.

Yeah this was some other mustard they did with herbs in it. HOT! :shock:
