What is the best application for about 3/4 of a cup of home-raised honey?

I got a small jar of amazing honey from a friends' hive for Christmas. I want to use it in the best possible way - ie, in a way that will show off the flavor as completely as possible. I really only have experience with baking, or mixing it in to things. What can I make that will do this gift justice?

I'm rushing right now to mix up a batch of southern baking powder biscuits so I can slather with butter and honey.Yum!

I have to agree with most, it needs to be enjoyed on its own, and I too would choose to just spread it over some nice bread with fresh butter and a cup of tea :)

Toast some sliced country bread or baguette, spread with fresh ricotta, drizzle honey over the top. It's also very good on warm, buttered corn bread or corn muffins.

Honey mousse or panna cotta.

Drizzle over a round of Brie, top with nuts and Dukkah (spelled Duqqa by some) or thyme and bake until ooey-gooey!

The other way to go about this would be to serve the honey with cheese, especially with an aged cheese with a fair amount of nuttiness: Parmigiano-Reggiano, Grana Padano, or manchego. Blue cheeses also work well with honey.

There!! That's the way to go. Yum!! Maybe some bubbly to go with it.

Slathered on a biscuit or scone with some REALLY good butter. I'd want to taste it in its purest form.

I agree 100%. Whip up some butter w/ a whisk or fork, beating air into it; add in honey; mix well. MAY be in a future iteration, try adding tiny bits of other notes: like orange zest or a pinch of various spices. Tarragon might make a nice honey butter for fish....
