The best way to eat honey: In The Raw!
Most commercially produced honey is pasteurized and filtered to prevent it from crystallizing, but that process markedly decreases some key nutrients, including probiotics and antioxidants. Raw, unfiltered honey also has a more complex and robust flavor than the processed variety. In a no-bake recipe like this fruit-and-nut-filled dessert, all of those qualities shine.
