Wild About Honey – ‘Cloud Forest’ Laurissilva Madeira Raw Honey
This Wild About Honey ‘Cloud Forest’ Laurissilva raw honey from Madeira is dark, rich and has real complexity. You can taste both the fruity notes of tropicals like passion flowers as well as dark earthy malty flavours. This combines beautifully into a well rounded unusual and very moreish honey. It is also slightly more fructose than glucose so like all honey it crystallizes, albeit over a matter of several months.
The last remaining Laurissilva Cloud forest of ancient Europe still exists, a living breathing vestige of earths ancient past. A sub-tropical paradise full of scented flowering plants, and pre-historic laurel forest as well as plants indigenous to southern Europe. This magical honey is made by bees working in beehives sitting on the edge of the village of Sao Vicente on the wild and verdant North Shore of Madeira.
We are lucky to be able to bring this honey to you as it is scarce, expensive and very hard to come by. It has to be shipped from this outlying Portuguese island archipelago.
This Wild About Honey – ‘Cloud Forest’ Laurissilva Madeira raw honey is from a small scale artisan producer. There is limited production and you are unlikely to find it in many other places. Every batch throughout the year is distinctly different, selecting the very best from this artisan producer, Mr Viera.
Honey and Crystallization Info: 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.
