Wild about Honey
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.
This raw honey 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 which combine 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.
We are lucky to be able to bring this honey to you as it is scarce, expensive and very hard to come by and has to be shipped from this outlying Portuguese island archipelago.
This honey is from a small scale artisan producer with a very limited production and you are very unlikely to find it anywhere else. Every batch throughout the year is distinctly different, we have tried to select the very best from this artisan producer, Mr Viera.
We think it is a little bit special and worth the effort we hope you do as well.
Wild about Honey
This 2 Star Great taste award winning honey is from a beekeeper in the Ribatejo, producing spectacular honeys. this is a 89% Eucalyptus, very pure ( very unusual) .The Ribatejo just outside Lisboa is famous for its wonderful honey.
It is quite sweet, starts of rich dark amber and crystallizes to a thick buttery texture.It has the truly distinct mellow sweetness of Eucalyptus honey and is extremely more-ish if you have a sweet tooth.It has been variously described as rich, resinous and with strong butterscotch notes. It is a damn near perfect example of a Raw Eucalyptus honey.
Like all Eucalyptus honey it has renowned antibacterial qualities and is also perfect for your winter medicine cabinet.
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.
