Raw Forest Honey - 5kg
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 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 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.
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.

Looking forward to the taste experience
I haven't yet opened the jar. I always buy a "special" pot of honey for indulgent purposes but haven't yet finished my current pot which came from Tintagel. I was surfing to try and buy more but it's only sold in the village shop as not enough is produced. However I'm really looking forward to tasting this honey. It is a gorgeous colour and my mouth is watering just looking at it. Hope I can wait till my other one's finished. Delicious on crumpets!!
Great tasting honey
Very good, honey bought from supermarkets etc tastes of a sweet honey flavour, but Organic Oak Honey has great deep flavours, it's like a good malt whisky compared to a basic blended whisky.
Another wonderful honey experience... 2nd place?
Thought I would try this Oak honey as it had so many good reviews. Yes, it's good, but I still prefer the stronger tasting Forest honey!
Raw organic honey
Very nice and tasty
Raw Forest Honey
Hello Tim. I am delighted with my large jar of honey. I love the rich earthy,deep,forest flavour. I enjoy just licking it off a spoon sometimes and also adding it to my green tea first thing in the morning. I love the mountains and forests in Asturias and Galicia in Spain and no wonder the bees have made it their home too. Kind regards, Susan Reeves
