Wild About Honey – ‘Arbutus’ Raw Honey
£11.49 – £22.99
Arbutus Unedo “bitter honey”, an highly medicinal honey, also known as Strawberry Tree honey, comes from only a few places, southern Portugal, Sardinia/Corsica and Greece. It has a truly unusual bitter/sweet complex multi layered taste and is not for the unadventurous! The closest way to describe it might be a bitter caramel.
Arbutus honey contains Homogentisic acid, a powerful phenolic acid. The antioxidant and antibacterial qualities of this honey are truly exceptional and it is one of the most antioxidant as well as antibacterial honeys in the world. Studies we have seen suggest that this is possibly the most antioxidant rich honey available much more so than Buckwheat or Chestnut honey.
Honey and Crystallization. Crystallization is a completely natural process and occurs with all raw honey. The speed and size of the crystallization depends on variations in the balance of sugars, ambient temperature and to some extent water content If your honey is set hard, you can loosen it up by placing it in a pan of hand hot water, (and repeat as necessary) using a spoon placed in hot water first and of course storing it in a sunny/warm place in the house.
