Natural Raw Mountain Honey [960g]

Raw, natural and one of the purest honeys because of the remote area it comes from.

Antibacterial, coarse-filtered, unpasteurised, and enzyme-rich.

This raw Forest comes from the Cantabrian Mountains and hills in Asturias, a green and unspoilt area in the north of Spain.

This is a very high-quality Forest honey, that is very thick.

Luisa's Raw Forest Honey has deep, full-bodied, slightly smoky, earthy tones, that deliver a more savoury taste than most other honeys. It has an aroma of sticky toffee pudding.

Rich main flavour with a very full-bodied and deep taste, similar to pomegranate molasses.  Strong mineral notes with a slightly dry and mostly clean after-taste.

Good, thick body.

What about the tree the honey comes from? The collective forest trees are known as bosque in Spanish. These can include chestnut and Mediterranean oak as well as beech and pine. These large trees exude a sweet sap which the bees feed on, sometimes with the help of aphids who drill into the tree bark allowing the sap to flow out more freely. Some also produce strongly-scented blossoms, which the bees love.

Common Uses: Forest honey is particularly good to use in recipes such as rich cakes, cookies, desert toppings, ice creams, warm honey teas and meat glazes. This is because of the rich, dark, molasses-like flavour it can lend.

Forest Honey Facts: Forest honey is higher in natural fructose than other types of honey, and so this serves as good source of energy. Hence, a spoon of forest honey helps to relieve fatigue immediately, and the lower glucose keeps it from setting longer than many other types of honey.

Please know that raw honey does crystalise and this is a natural process that occurs mainly due to the natural glucose in raw honey. For more information and scientific explanation go to wikipedia.
