Raw Honeydew Forest Honey - 454g



Pin It Fancy

Due to the low production of our regular honeydew honey from Fir trees this year we re-visited our Greek Bee-keeper this summer and came back with this incredible Honeydew Forest Honey, largely from Mediterranean Oak Trees (AKA Velanidia in Greek).

The bees mostly collect the sap from the acorns of Oak trees, however surrounding trees such as fir and pine are also likely to be visited by the same bees.

Thus the combination of these forest trees found in the mountainous regions of Northern Greece give this incredible Honeydew Forest Honey a rich dark amber colour with a deep caramel woody flavour.

Like all our honeys our single estate bee-keeper uses traditional methods to protect the bees and the natural enzymes, vitamins and minerals in the honey.    

Due to the low glucose content of this honey it remains runny for longer then most blossom honeys. However if and when it does crystallise you can restore the honeys runnyness by placing the jar (with the lid off) in a bowl of hot water for 20 minutes.

We pride ourselves in finding hard to find pure products and sharing them with our customers.

 

Just to clarify that any honey labelled with the term 'blend' is likely to be mixed with added sweeteners such as sugar and corn syrup. This is very deceiving to the consumer.  Our honey is a pure honey from a single estate bee keeper.

Greece has more beehives per acre than any other country in Europe and Greek honey is considered to be some of the finest honey in the world. This is largely due to the rich variety of Greek flora and unlimited summer sun.
