Björn’s Honey Baklava

Baklava is often associated with Greek cuisine but it's a dish that dates back to the Ottoman empire. It is eaten throughout the Mediterranean and middle east and is very popular in Turkey. Turks and Greeks both claim the dish as their own, but it likely belongs to both cultures. Made with layers of thin dough and ground nuts, most often pistachios or walnuts, and sugar syrup or honey, it’s a great way to highlight the taste of our local honey.
