Raw Organic Forest Honey - 5kg


Alvaro's Raw Organic Forest Honey has a wonderfully salty, savoury scent similar in ways to the sweet and savoury aroma of roasted tomatoes.  The honey starts with a dark, black tea tannin-like foretaste, easing into a very sweet and delicious main 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 medium-dark colour going ruby-red in the light.

Where does the honey come from?: This variety of forest honey comes from mountains in La Rioja and Soria in Spain, a largely untouched, wild and diverse region in central to north Spain. The soil here is very rich and his hives are in a series of wild and mountainous national parks.

Who produces this honey?: This variety comes from Juan Carlos, a beekeeper who works for Alvaro. He has a passion for producing raw organic honey of the very highest quality.  His honeys have a full, rich flavour typical of many products from the region.

What about the tree the honey comes from? The collective forest trees are known as bosque in Spanish. In this instance it is a Spring forest, with the predominant tree being Holly. It also includes Scotch Broom (which gives a malty flavour), wild lavender, thyme and rosemary. 

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 fatiue immediately, and the lower glucose keeps it from setting longer than many other types of honey.
