Prize Winner in the Great Taste Awards 2018

According to the judges: They loved it for its "Lovely buttery yellow colour and good nose." They also appreciated that its "Rich honey notes are well balanced and deliver good floral flavours," and that "You can taste the terroir in it. We went back for more!"

 

Plamen's raw organic lime tree (linden) honey has a heady floral aroma strongly reminiscent of linden blossoms.  It makes us think of springtime picnics surrounded by flowers. The flavour is similarly powerful, almost as though the flowers themselves might be in the honey. In addition to the strong linden taste, it reminds us of sweet violets and has a pleasingly mild acidity, which makes the honey not particularly sweet - somewhat unusual for lighter-coloured honeys.

Colour: Lime tree (linden) honey is quite light in colour. It's slightly darker and more brassy than acacia honey when runny, turning a very pale yellow when crystalised, similar to the colour of lemon curd.

Where does the honey come from? This honey comes from the forests around the village of Panchevo, located in the Sredets Municipality.  It is a tucked-away, rural area in southeastern Bulgaria, quite near the border with Turkey and not far from the Black Sea.  It enjoys lovely warm weather in the summers and is covered in forested hills.

Who produces this honey? This honey comes from Plamen.  He is a natural, traditional, organic-certified beekeeper, following on from generations of family beekeepers before him.  He lives with his wife and son in a little stone and wood house, sat in a meadow, faced by beehives.

What about the plant the honey comes from? The lime tree, also known as linden, or basswood in America, is a type of Tilia tree. They are known to produce generous amounts of sweet smelling nectar which draws bees from all around, these trees can live over 1000 years and grow up to 100 foot tall. They have been revered throughout history for over 2000 years and were known as the mystical tree of life.

Common Uses: Lime honey is particularly good to use on irritated skin, it has a soothing effect and can help repair wounds, infections and eczema. It is also very versatile in recipes such as: cakes, desert toppings, and salads. This is because its tart flavour adds a real zing to dishes.

 

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.

Bursting with flavour

I had never come across Lime honey before and bought some from the Raw Honey shop. My first spoonful and I was hooked. I would never have believed you could get such flavour in honey. It is so delicious and makes you understand how glorious nature and natural products are. Thank you for an amazing product Tim.

Good Quality.

The product arrived on time and undamaged which was great. The taste was not the best honey I’ve had from the raw honey shop but it’s still a good quality jar of honey.
