Raw 100% Natural Honeydew Honey
Harvest: Late Summer 2020
Honeydew honey is the only type of honey made not from the nectar of the flowers, but collected from the sweet juices on the leaves and bark of the trees. Honeydew honey has a very dark almost black colour and thick consistency. Honeydew honey has levels of calcium, magnesium, sodium, potassium and iron not found in any floral honey.
Taste: Honeydew honey has a full-bodied flavour. It has a silky smooth thick consistency with distinct and intense aroma of woods and a malty earthy flavour with slightly sour and salty notes.
Honeydew Honey Benefits: Honeydew honey has comparable or even more effective antibacterial activity than Manuka honey. The unique combination of minerals, microelements and vitamins make the honeydew honey a great antioxidant and health stimulator.
Pairing: Honeydew honey goes well with smoked cheeses and semi hard cheeses. It is also delicious in a plain yogurt or on toast, or as other types of honey great to enjoy on a spoon or two a day as a general immune booster.
Real Raw Honey guarantees 100% natural, unpasteurised Honeydew Honey– nothing added and nothing taken away! Unlike many commercial honeys, our process avoids fine filtering to ensure all the goodness including the pollen remains. Honey is our passion and we are dedicated in delivering quality. Great care is taken in every step from the hives straight to your doorstep.
Good to know: Crystallisation is a natural process in raw honey that indicates rawness and high quality.
If crystallisation occurs, but you prefer your honey runny, simply place the jar in a bowl of warm water – not exceeding 40°C /104°F. With this method honey will turn back to runny retaining 100% quality and flavour.
