Wild About Honey – ‘Wild Lavender’ Raw Honey
This 100% raw Wild About Lavender Honey is cold extracted, unfiltered and is the backbone of the Portuguese honey harvest, known locally as ‘Rosmaninho’, This honey is to Portugal what Acacia is to Italy.
This honey made from bees foraging on the Lavandula Stoechas plant, a wild ancestor of the cultivated lavenders without the perfumed lavender smell. It grows extensively over the hillsides of many areas of Portugal including the Algarve and Alentejo, where our honey comes from. This particular honey is a medium-sweet, delicate, floral, amber, silky textured honey, with an almost fruity backnote. Very versatile, superb everyday honey. Produced in the Algarve hills by master artisan beekeepers and happy bees. Its hard to beat Rosmaninho.
Wild About Honey – ‘Wild Lavender’ Raw 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.
