Raw Forest Honey
A Full Bodied Toffee-Like Honey
Our forest honey starts with an aroma similar of toffee pudding, it has deep, full bodied, slightly smoky, earthy tones, with a more savoury taste than some other honeys. Having been described as similar to a pomegranate molasses there are strong mineral notes with a slightly dry and mostly clean aftertaste. This is quite a thick honey which is higher in natural fructose than other types of honey. Hence, a spoon of forest honey helps to relieve fatigue and a great energy source, the lower glucose keeps it from setting longer than many other types of honey.
Forest honey is collected by bees from forest hives in Asturias northern Spain. The bees feed from chestnut and Mediterranean oak trees as well as beech and pine and often bramble flowers.
The colour of the honey can vary due to seasonal variations, which is normal with all raw honey.
With its lovely rich earthy flavour chestnut honey is great for using in cookies, as a dessert topping, in granola and rich cakes.
