Pure Avocado Honey
A Stunning Creamy-Molasses Honey
*A New Addition To Our Premium Honey Range May 2022!*
Avocado honey, a rare gourmet honey, is a result of bees feeding on the nectar of avocado tree blossoms, harvested in the middle of avocado groves, on the tropical coast of Spain. The honey is primarily sweet and has a similar taste to molasses or sorghum, with a subtle and pleasant, aromatic aroma along with a robust and buttery flavour and texture.
Unlike other honeys, Avocado Honey has a unique sugar in its composition - persitol. Scientists believe that this may be why it does not crystallize as quickly as the other bee by-products. That may be due to the presence of persitol, which is not found in any other type of honey.
The nectar of the avocado tree is rich in two specific minerals: Phosphorus and Potassium. It sounds like a healthy choice, right? But not for the bees. As these insects scout for their next energy source, they often select flowers with just the right concentration of nutrients. Studies show that bees often turn down mixtures with high levels of salts, especially the two aforementioned. As a result, the harvest of avocado honey is relatively low compared to other types, like acacia or orange blossom.
This molasses-tasting honey is an excellent spread that pairs well with hearty freshly-baked bread, it’s great to use in baking, and it contributes depth when mixed into to salad dressings, marinades and meat glazes, and thick sauces.
