Full Answer

Honeycomb has an interesting texture, and its use is versatile. It travels better than honey, and the wax creates a firmer body. Honeycomb stores at room temperature for long periods of time. Darker-hued honeycombs offer up deeper flavor. Honeycomb is delicious in a warm bowl of oatmeal, tapioca or rice pudding. A slab of honeycomb and a dollop of sour cream in the center tame the spicy, hot taste of chili.
