Sourdough Waffles with Honey

Bee has lived in this planet far longer than humans. Scientists estimate that this “beetle” appeared 65 million years from today, which is a lot earlier than the presence of humans on earth.

From a very early an age, human was “hunting” the honey without harming the bee and this can be seen in wall paintings in caves.

In ancient Greece, the person to whom the art of beekeeping was attributed was Aristaios. Aristaios was the son of Apollo and the nymph Kirini and he was born in Libya. The moment he was born, god Hermes took him and gave him to Gaia and Ores to raise him. They fed him with nectar and ambrosia these being honey/water and honey correspondingly. They also taught him how to cultivate the vineyard and the olive tree and the art of beekeeping.

In Odyssey “Melikraton” was a drink with milk and honey very viand and Hippocrates the father of medicine urged people to consume honey so as to prevent but also to heal diseases.

Aristotle was the person who studied scientifically the bee and its byproduct, the honey.

Honey played a major role in ancient Greek diet and meals. Some types of the food they consumed during that period were:

Sauces made from vinegar, spices and honey.

Melíkraton, which was milk with honey.

Bread with cheese and honey.

Mitotós, a pie made with cheese, olive oil, honey and garlic.

Pancakes bathed in olive oil and honey.

Bread, wine, honey, figs and the olive oil were always present on every day’s table during the ancient years along with fish, legumes, onions and olives. Red meat was consumed during important religious feasts or important anniversaries.

From scripts we know that there was organized beekeeping and there were rules and regulations on how to maintain a beehive.

Of course, not only in ancient Greece but also in other places of the world like Egypt, Mesopotamia etc. man managed to get this delicious product. (Source: http://www.hellinon.net/NeesSelides/Nektar.htm)

Nowadays, in Greece we consume 1.7 kilos (almost 4 pounds) per capita every year and we are among the first in consumption in European Union. Also we are the second in the number of beehives in Europe and 4th in honey production.

So, as you can see we eat a lot of honey and the quality here is excellent. Under this spirit, when I made these delicious sourdough waffles, it was inevitable not to add honey and cinnamon on them. I can tell you there is no better way to start your day than these delicious waffles or pancakes if you don’t have the waffle iron. It is up to you and your mood. In any case, don’t forget to add honey and cinnamon. They will make you feel like an ancient Greek god.

    I prefer honey to sugar. This is a fabulous recipe. I like the taste of sourdough in breads and waffles.

  54. 28
  55. My little sister was a ‘bee whisperer’ when she was a tiny kid. She would hold them in her hand and they’d let her stroke them, especially bumble bees.

    I absolutely adore honey and am never without a jar, perferring it 9 times out of 10 to sugar in a recipe.

    Can’t wait to try these waffles – they are a good excuse to try and perfect my sourdough starter :(

    Βάφλες με προζύμι δεν έχω δοκιμάσει, αλλά στη φωτογραφία δείχνουν τόσο δελεαστικές που δεν θα μπορούσα με τίποτα να αρνηθώ.
    Πολύ ωραίος και ο συνδυασμός με το γλυκό του κουταλιού! Ό,τι πρέπει για ένα γλυκό και δυναμωτικό πρωινό!

    Τρελαίνομαι για βάφλες, είναι νοστιμότατες και τέλειες για πρωινό!

  81. Δεν έχω ξαναδεί βάφλες με προζύμι και ομολογώ ότι μου κάνουν εντύπωση.
    Σε συνδυασμό με το μέλι θα έχουν μια πιο “παραδοσιακή” γεύση νομίζω.
    Σίγουρα θα ήθελα να τις δοκιμάσω!
    Φιλιά

  84. 43
  85. I knew the importance of honey but had no idea honey gathering was found on cave paintings, cool. Wow the sourdough waffles look amazing. I might even give up my Quebec maple syrup for honey this one time 😉

    We’re having a big problem in the US with lack of bees. Are you guys having similar issues in Greece?

  92. 47
  93. Debra says:

    I love all recipes and dishes that utilize honey. We have two hives that we are hoping will over-winter without any problems. (We lost one two years ago during the winter.)

  94. 48
  95. These pancakes would be a perfect start to my day! I’ve been reading some articles about the possibility of bees becoming extinct, which woukd be horrible! I buy local honey. It’s the most delicious topping and would be so tasty with your pancakes.

  96. 49
  97. These look absolutely beautiful and tasty all at the same time. Thanks for sharing.

  99. Sissi says:

    Gorgeous waffles, Katerina! I had no idea “sourdough waffles” were even possible… then I’m not a waffles specialist… I loved them as a child and somehow forgot about their existence. I’m sure they are delicious with honey. I hope more people pay attention to what they eat and buy more organic food because otherwise bees will be extinct soon…

  100. 51
  101. Platter Talk says:

    What a beautiful job you’ve done with the sourdough waffles, Katerina. I wish I had been there to taste them! We have made these today’s Best of Show feature today, on Platter Talk.

    Διάβασα την αρχική συνταγή σου και νομίζω θα τη δοκιμάσω κάποια στιγμή, εύκολη είναι!!
    Πεντανόστιμες θα είναι οι τηγανίτες σου με το μέλι!!
    Από εμφάνιση σκίζουν!!
