Beschreibung

  • Raw, natural and one of the purest honeys because of the remote area it comes from.
  • Antibacterial, coarse-filtered, unpasteurised, and enzyme-rich.
  • Lab tested with a 17+ Active rating
  • 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 starts with an aroma of sticky toffee pudding. On first taste, it has deep, full bodied, slightly smoky, earthy tones, delivering a more savoury taste than some other honey's. The rich main flavour is very full-bodied and deep-tasting, similar to a pomegranate molasses. There are strong mineral notes with a slightly dry and mostly clean after-taste. The body is good and thick, sitting on the tongue momentarily before melting away.

*What does "Active" mean?": We send some of our honeys to a lab for a "Total Activity test". This test measures the total antimicrobial activity of a honey. This is done by testing a solution of a honey on a lab plate against the Staph Aureus bacteria. the honey is graded according to the amount of bacteria that the honey solution kills. Generally the range that we see will be between 10 and 25 plus. This type of test is similar to the test used to grade Manuka Honey. 

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 on why honey sets visit this article and for a more scientific explanation go to wikipedia.

Bought as a gift.

The honey came well packed and promptly. As for taste and consistency I’ve no idea as it was bought early as a Christmas gift to beat any delivery problems.
