Strawberries and Lehua Blossom Honey is one of our all-time favorite flavor combinations. The sweet, slightly tart acidity of fresh summer strawberries and the smooth, floral, sweet creaminess of Lehua Blossom Honey is simply exquisite. We combine them both in this simple stovetop simmer sauce to pour over fresh yogurt, pancakes, waffles, biscuits, or as a fresh jam with butter and sourdough toast. For as simple as this recipe is, it’s one you’ll keep coming back to for the rich, bright flavors and ease of preparation. It’s also packed with Vitamin C!
