Blue gum, Raw honey, 500gms
Blue gum honey rates 3 out of 5 stars on both the Raw Honey Company's sweetness scale and flavour strength scales.
So this honey is ideal for multiple uses, including on desserts - drizzling the honey on vanilla yoghurt for example, or vanilla ice-cream.
It'll also make an excellent natural sweetener for tea, coffee and other hot drinks.
The honey was harvested from blue gum (i.e. Eucalyptus bicostata) trees growing in the Mount Samaria State Park in north-easternVictoria.
Its raw honey, because it has been extracted cold, and bottled without any heating or processing.
So it still contains pollen, bees wax and other goodies that are normally filtered out in supermarket honey.
This means the honey retains all the goodness, flavour and vitality the bees originally made it with.
This honey is also certified organic in accordance with the National Standard for Organic and Biodynamic Produce.
This 500gms honey package is bottled in a recyclable glass jar with a metal screw on lid.
Choose from either natural candied ( i.e. crystallized and firm) or liquid style. (Note: Liquid honey has been gently warmed.)
[Note: If you prefer your honey liquid you can usually restore candied honey to a liquid state with gentle warming, e.g. by standing in a pan of hot water. But to keep as much of the honey's natural goodness as possible try to warm at less than the typical maximum summer temperature inside a bee hive - or around 40 degrees celsius.]
