Raw Sunflower Honey - 1kg
Ramon's raw sunflower honey has a deep and buttery flavour for a flower honey, quite rich but not sickly. It is warming and fresh with clear floral notes often a favourite of children due to its pleasing fresh floral taste.
More on the flavour: This is a very pleasant tasting flower blossom honey, it has a beautiful floral depth and a warm fruitiness you might not expect. It comes from bees feeding on the large florets on the Mediterranean sunflowers. Different from the tree honey which comes from sap, this flower honey is quite different from tree honey as it is much lighter in taste, colour and sets very quickly due to high glucose levels.
Colour: This particular honey is a prominent yellow colour going to orange when set.
Where does the honey come from?: This variety of sunflower honey comes from Aragon in Spain, a largely untouched, wild and diverse landscape close to the French border at the north and borders with Valencia to the south.
Who produces this honey?: This sunflower variety comes from Uncle Ramon, a friendly hip beekeeper with a passion for traditional methods of honey production. Ramon produces a wide variety of different honey, all completely raw with nothing added or taken away.
What about the tree the honey comes from?: The sunflower is a tall annual plant also known as girasol in Spanish. It can grow around 1500 small flowers on a single head. When the bees visit the plant they can become entirely covered in pollen due to the large amount on the disc floret. The sunflower head always tilts to face the sun to absorb the maximum amount of energy needed to grow and produce flowers this is called heliotropism.
Common Uses: Sunflower honey is particularly good to use in different recipes, such as: cakes, flapjacks, breads and teas.
Sunflower Honey Facts: Sunflower honey tends to be a very oily variety and very rich in glucose, this makes it quite unique amongst other types as it sets very quickly and spreads like butter.
What our Customers Say:
Thanks Tim. Excellent service. My wife like the lemon, I favour the sunflower. Have a good season.
Maybe not the most healing of your honey, but my whole family fell in love with the sunflower one. And that's saying a lot as it was a set batch and I was always the only one to like set honey. But this was something different, such smooth, almost buttery texture, beautiful bright yellow colour and subtle aroma. Was a hit with greek yoghurt, I know it's not what you're used to, but the textures play together so nicely. .. Kids are still asking for 'hard honey' :))
