Mountain gum honey, Raw, 500gms
Mountain gum honey is a delicious Australian eucalyptus honey.
It rates 3 out of 5 stars on the Raw honey company's sweetness scale and 3 out of 5 on the flavour strength scale.
So this is a goldilocks honey, sweet and flavoursome but not too sweet and not too strongly flavoured.
Its suitable for all traditional honey uses and sure to be loved by all the family.
The honey was harvested from mountain gum trees (latin name - eucalyptus dalrympleana) growing in the Toombullup state forest of north eastern victoria.
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This means the honey retains all the goodness, flavour and vitality the bees originally made it with.
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.]
