Antonio's Organic Oak Honey Active 20 (970g) - This is a very deep and rich tasting tree honey; it has a fruitiness as well as a deep woody flavour. Tree honey tends to be dark, have a stronger flavour and are less likely to set due to a relatively low glucose content. Antonio's raw oak honey is a unique type amongst the tree varieties. It has a deep earthy taste with lots of malt and a touch of smokiness - quite savoury and not as sweet as other varieties. This particular oak honey is very dark in colour, almost black. In some cultures, dark honey is very highly valued.
What does "Active" mean in the product title?: We send some of our honeys to a lab for a "Total Activity test". This test measures the total antimicrobial activity of a honey. This is done by testing a solution of a honey on a lab plate against the Staph Aureus bacteria. The honey is graded according to the amount of bacteria that the honey solution kills. Generally the range that we see will be between 10 and 25 plus. This type of test is similar to the test used to grade Manuka Honey.
Antonio's Raw Organic Chestnut Honey (970g) - This is a deep and malty-tasting tree honey. It has a beautiful, rich and nutty flavour, which many people adore. It comes from bees feeding on the nectar and sap of sweet chestnut trees. It is quite different from blossom varieties like Lavender, which are light and subtle - this is dark and more potent.
You will find slight caramel notes as well as a deep sweetness and a touch of bitterness too. The nutty flavour of the chestnut carries through as well as a taste a little similar to maple syrup but slightly more rich and malty. Chestnut can lend a bitter taste to honey but not always, it is known to be one of the most varied types of honey in taste, differing greatly from region to region and from one season to the next.
Please note that the style of jar has now changed and we are also currently reprinting our labels so the jars and labels may be different from the photograph.
Please know that raw honey does crystallise 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.
