10 Best Honey Flavors For Rosh Hashanah Apple-Dipping

6. Tupelo Honey


Tupelo honey manages to be sweeter than most other honey varieties, yet extremely palatable, mild, and balanced. It is best served with tart fruits, yogurt, and toast.

Best Apple Match: McIntosh


7. Wildflower Honey


Wildflower honey is derived from the nectar of many different types of flowers, giving it a multi-layered and complex flavor profile. Its flavor changes from season to season, depending on which bloomings are prevalent, but is consistently light, fruity, and floral. It tastes wonderful in tea and coffee, with desserts, and savory dishes as well.

Best Apple Match: Royal Gala


8. Orange Blossom Honey


Orange Blossom honey is almost as widely available as clover honey, but be sure to carefully read the bottle before purchasing. Many of the orange blossom honeys sold at conventional supermarkets are artificially flavored. Genuine orange blossom honey is mild, sweet, and citrus-scented, and is best served with tea, fruit, yogurt, or fresh salads.

Best Apple Match: Jazz


9. Alfalfa Honey


Alfalfa honey is a light, spicy, delicate honey gathered from the nectar of alfalfa blossoms. It has a high nutritional value, and is best served in smoothies or savory dishes.

Best Apple Match: Ambrosia


10. Acacia Honey


Acacia honey is almost transparent in color, with clean floral and vanilla flavor accents. It is often used as a sweetener, but also lends well to beverages, fruit salads, fruity teas, and salad dressings.

Best Apple Match: Braeburn
