Raw, natural and one of the purest honeys because of the remote area it comes from.
Antibacterial, coarse-filtered, unpasteurised, and enzyme-rich.
This raw Creamed Chestnut comes from the Cantabrian Mountains and hills in Asturias, a green and un-spoilt area in the north of Spain.
This honey has been cold creamed, which gives it a smooth, spreadable consistency, with a very fine crystal structure.
Luisa's Raw Creamed Organic Chestnut Honey has deep, full bodied, slightly smoky, earthy tones, that deliver a more savoury taste than most other honeys. It has a slightly bitter taste. It has caramel notes coming in around an essence of deep, black raisins and prunes, leaving a slightly ferrous tingle on the tongue.
The strong overall flavour makes it perfect for those who love dark, strong honeys.
Colour: This honey is a light, creamy brown.
Where does the honey come from?: This variety of chestnut honey comes from Cantabria, a largely untouched, wild and diverse region in the north of Spain. Luisa's hives are well away from sources of pollution in the national parks, and these have now been certified Organic.
Who produces this honey?: This honey comes from Luisa and her daughter Olaya. She is a beekeeper with a passion for producing raw honey of the very highest quality - with a lot of attention to detail. Her honeys have a full, rich flavour typical of many products from the region.
What about the plants the honey comes from? This comes from the flowers of the Sweet Chestnut Tree. It is known for being high in minerals.
Common Uses: Chestnut honey is particularly good to use to aid a sore throat or cough as well as in recipes such as rich cakes and meat glazes.
Chestnut Honey Facts: Chestnut honey tends to be a honey that is furthest away from sources of pollution, so is one of the purest honeys available.
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.
