Raw Acacia Honey - 120g Tester
Ivan's raw acacia honey is a very mild and pleasant honey, a soft and light taste of creamy vanilla and a hint of floral blossoms.
More on the flavour: This is a very mild tasting tree blossom honey. It has one of the lightest tastes in the world of honey, it is a little like a soft vanilla and cream. This comes from bees feeding on the Acacia blossoms on the Bulgarian Acacia trees. It has a very low glucose content so tends to stay runny for longer than other honeys.
Colour: This particular honey is a very light golden colour, very nearly clear.
Where does the honey come from?: This variety of acacia honey comes from Gorna Oryahovitsa in Bulgaria. It is situated at the northern foothill of the Tarnovo Elevations, a beautiful landscape with a rich and ancient history.
Who produces this honey?: This acacia variety comes from Ivan. A young and fastidious beekeeper who is very concerned with details and getting it just right. He has a systematic approach and colour codes his hives, this stops the bees getting confused and heading to the wrong hive where a fight may ensue! Ivan is going through organic certification and is in his last year, it takes 3 years to obtain.
What about the tree the honey comes from?: The Acacia tree is actually a flowering plant which is part of the legume family. It is also known as the black locust tree due the black legumes which grow on the tree and give the appearance of locusts. There are an incredible amount of sub species, all produce a light beautiful smelling nectar that the bees love.
Common Uses: Acacia honey is particularly good to use on irritated skin, it has a soothing effect and can help soothe and repair wounds, infections and damage. It is also very versatile in different recipes, such as: cakes, cookies, desert toppings, ice creams, warm honey teas, salads and meat glazes, this is because of its light flavour it does not tend to alter a dishes taste.
Acacia Honey Facts: Acacia honey has a very low glycaemic index, therefore it is more suited for those who can be sensitive to glucose for different reasons. This also means the honey tends to stay in a pristine looking state, like a clear liquid gold for longer than other raw honeys.
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.
