What determines the flavour of honey?
All of the yummy goodness in our honey comes from flowers. Yes, that’s right! The type of flowers that bees collect nectar from is the main factor that influences the taste of the honey.
What is small batch honey?
We do not blend large batches of honey as this removes many of the unique flavours found in the honey that come from local flowers. Instead, our honey is packaged in small batches. This allows for a slight flavour variance but ensures that you are getting an authentic tasting honey.
What is creamed honey?
All of our honey is creamed. Over time, liquid honey begins going through the process of crystallization. This process causes liquid honey to develop a coarse texture and become solid. The crystallization process does not occur with creamed honey. Creaming is the process of whipping honey with air to break down sugar crystals on a microscopic level, creating the amazingly smooth and spreadable texture that you love. Creamed honey will remain soft and spreadable without becoming solid.
Why do we never pasteurize our honey?
We never pasteurize our honey which allows it to maintain its nutritional and medicinal benefits. Pasteurizing honey is the process of heating the honey to a high temperature which removes the beneficial microorganisms naturally found in honey.
