Description

Please note this honey has now passed its best before date.  Honey never goes off so it is perfectly safe to eat.  The best before date is purely an indication of when the honey is likely to crystallise. 

Raw, unpasteurised, all natural.

This wild rosemary has a light and subtle flavour, very delicate yet sweet with a soft floral note.

Beautiful, light amber colour which turns to a light creamy yellow when set.

It comes from Rioja in Spain, a largely untouched, wild and diverse region in northern Spain.

More on the flavour: This is a very light and pleasant herb flower honey, it has a creamy floral taste with a noticeable hint of rosemary in the flavour. It comes from the bees feeding on small flowers on the Mediterranean rosemary plant and is quite different from the tree honey which comes from sap. This honey tends to be very mild and subtle and sets quicker than others.

Colour - This honey ranges from a light-yellow to a light amber colour when runny and turns to a light, creamy yellow when set.

More Wild Rosemary Honey Facts: Wild rosemary honey tends to be a very light honey with a mild flavour, it has been a prized honey throughout history from the Romans to the French monks who would collect and store it, it has a low moisture content making it a bit thicker in consistency than other types.

Where does the honey come from? This variety of wild rosemary honey comes from Rioja 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 Alvaro, a beekeeper with a passion for producing raw honey of the very highest quality.  His honeys have a full, rich flavour typical of many products from the region.

What about the plant the honey comes from? The herb is an evergreen plant growing up to 2 metres in height. You see it everywhere on the wild hillsides in Spain in March. Rosemary is also known as Romero in Spanish, which means dew of the sea when translated from Latin as it would often be found by the sea boasting beautiful blue flowers.

Common Uses: Wild rosemary honey is particularly good to use in salad dressings.

 

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.

I am very pleased to have bought it. I was a bit dubious but in fact, the texture and the subtle taste of rosemary is delicious. I'll keep it for last to enjoy it more. I eat it with a teaspoon and keep it under my tongue for 5 minutes. You really enjoy the aftertaste!
