Ivan's raw acacia & wildflower honey is a mild, sweet honey, with a soft taste and hints of creamy vanilla and floral blossoms. This batch contains a larger proportion of wildflower nectar than previous acacia honeys, which has caused the honey to set. So it's perfect if you like set honey with a light flavour.

More on the flavour: This is a mild tasting tree blossom and wildflowers honey. It is a little like a soft vanilla and cream with the added floral scent of meadow flowers. This mostly comes from bees feeding on the Acacia blossoms on the Bulgarian Acacia trees. The tree has been well known throughout history as a source of medicine by the African tribes, Greeks, Romans and European settlers.

Colour: This honey is a very pale yellow colour.

Where does the honey come from?: This variety of 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?: It 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 species, all produce a light beautiful smelling nectar that the bees love. This batch contains a larger relative proportion of wildflower nectar.


Common Uses: Acacia honey is particularly good to use on irritated skin. It has a soothing effect and can help repair wounds, infections and damage. It is also very versatile, and can be used in recipes for cakes, cookies, desert toppings, ice creams, warm honey teas and salads. This is because its light flavour does not tend to alter a dish's taste.

 

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.

Flowery

Very light and flowery, pleasant to taste. My grand-daughter likes it a lot; my preference is for a honey which packs more punch.

Raw Acacia & Wildflower Honey

Unfortunately half the jar was crystalized I warmed the jar and mixed the crystals with the other part of honey . This did not work tried a few times I feel I have wasted my money on this particular honey I have had other Honey from the raw honey shop and every other product ordered has been high quality unfortunately Acacia wildflower honey was very disappointing

Hi Carol, Sorry to see you aren't happy with your honey. Though warming honey will turn it back to runny, some honeys can be particularly stubborn and require a lot of time to fully de-crystalise. Crystalised acacia is also very resistant. Please know that the quality of the honey has no bearing on how it crystalises, so no need to worry about that. If you'd like to stick with runny honeys, do make sure to check the product description, where we always list whether the honey is runny or not. Best wishes, The Raw Honey Shop Team
