Guanaja Mango Vinegar & Roatan Honey

Booty! I scored these exquisite locally produced goods while on The Bay Islands, Honduras.

The Springers make this delicious fruity organic vinegar from their own mango trees on the little mountainous island of Guanaja: it's like a mango version of apple cider vinegar. Awesome on salads with olive oil and a bit of sea salt.

I love tasting honey from all over the world. This fragrant honey made on the island of Roatan reminds me of Yucatan honey, as it has similar exotic floral and orange blossom aromas - likely from orchids and orange trees. I overhead someone saying that this honey was made by stingless bees - endangered native bees cultured by the Mayans.
