Eucalyptus Radiata honey, Raw, 500gms
Eucalyptus Radiata honey is a wonderfully sweet and strongly flavoured honey.
Its great taste makes it ideal to eat straight from the jar, and also to add flavour to baked cakes and biscuits.
There's not much that can beat the wonderful kitchen smell of a cake baked with this honey in the oven.
With its strong flavour and sweetness this is also a great honey for cooking in stir fries and Asian inspired dishes.
The honey is called eucalyptus radiata because the bees collected their nectar for this honey from eucalyptus radiatas growing in the Strathbogie state forest of north eastern Victoria. (These trees are perhaps better known as narrow-leaved peppermint gums. But even though its leaves have a slightly mint smell, its blossoms and nectar don't. So the honey is better described by the trees latin name.)
The honey has been extracted cold, without any heating or processing so its absolutely raw.
And it still contains lots of pollen, wax and other natural components 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This means the honey retains all the goodness, flavour and vitality the bees originally made it with.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 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.]
