Raw Portuguese Heather honey, locally known as "Urze", is a potent, rich, delicious, aromatic honey. Also highly esteemed for its antibacterial and antioxidant properties. Recent Portuguese studies show it to be more potent than Chestnut honey and very high in phenolic compounds
As this 2017 Heather is distinctly different from that of last year and just harvested in the last few months it is still in its runny, liquid state
If you've bought our Heather honey in the past you would know that our Portuguese Algarvian heather usually comes from the "Erica" family of heather not the Calluna, or Ling like the Scottish Heather. It is not thixotropic or jelly like in that way, but is a rich dark, viscous honey.
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.
