What our Customers Say
I was born by the Mediterranean Sea and we had big rosemary bushes in the garden. We use rosemary to cook too. Rosemary-bees and honey is part of me. My first order was eclectic because I wanted to try what was on offer. My second order included 3 rosemary honey jars because I just loved it. I believe in food synergy and use honey for breakfast on organic honey with 2 tablespoons of chia seeds. The honey was luscious, thick and addictive. It is now part of my morning. Marzia
My first experience of truly delicious honey occurred when I was 18 and taking a gap year before starting university. During this time, I spent 6 weeks on Crete and had raw honey and yoghurt every day. It was extraordinary - fragrant and complex, unlike any honey I'd had before. I have tried many honeys' since and your Rosemary honey comes closest. It tastes of dry, hot sunshine and Rosemary tinged sweetness. Kelly
The rosemary honey is my favourite firstly because of the wonderful flavour. It evokes happy memories of living in Spain; warmth, sun and the enormous rosemary bush that lived outside our kitchen window. We would watch the bees merrily pollenating and wonder what it would taste like. Now we know!! Izzy
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.
