 Luisa's Raw Organic Forest Honey/Active 17: 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 honeys. 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.

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.

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.

Crystallisation:-  Please know that raw honey does crystallise and is a natural process of raw honey (therefore we cannot except returns on honey that may have crystallised). We indicate on the website the state of each honey - either runny or crystallised but be aware this is to the best of our knowledge and the state can change quickly.   If you want your honey runny and it has crystallised it's very easy to return it to runny go to this link Runny Honey  or see this section under our FAQ's Why Is My Honey Crystallised?

We only supply raw honey because we believe this is how all honey should be.  If you don't want your honey to crystallise then raw honey probably isn't for you.
