There is a french saying: “entre la poire et le fromage” first mentioned in the first edition of the French Academy’s dictionary (1694) referring to all the discussions and confessions at the end of a rich meal.
At that moment, which every single meal aspires to reach, honey can be a catalyst with its thick, sweet flavour and thyme’s unique scent. In this case it is recommended that you exaggerate with the pollen grains. So opt for the limited edition premium Greek thyme 80% honey, as it will not be cooked and thus will remain raw, retaining its nutritional value.
If you prefer apple over pear or wish to experiment with variations for your breakfast, try the same recipe with apple and perhaps a hint of cinnammon. It is up to you.
