Light, floral and very sweet Acacia honey. Great for coffee, tea or homemade lemonade.
Delicious acacia honey straight from the hives, simply filtered through muslin cloth and jarred right away without any processing. The honey comes from family apiaries in Poland and is made in Scotland. Choose from 2 sizes of jar - 400g or 1kg.
Acacia honey is derived from the nectar of the Robinia pseudoacacia flower, commonly known as the black locust or false acacia tree. Compared with traditional honey, it’s often much lighter in colour, appearing almost transparent.
Acacia honey from Poland is perfect for breakfast with its mild, sweet, floral flavour and is therefore, one of the most popular honey varieties. It is a good choice for mixing with beverages because it sweetens without changing the taste of the drink.
Acacia Honey is also an excellent choice for paring with cheese and in salad and in cooking because of its mild flavour and because it mixes easily with liquids and batters. It has hints of vanilla flavour and no aftertaste.
Acacia honey is slow to crystallise. This means that it can remain in a liquid state for a long period of time due to its high concentration of fructose. Kids love it due to its delicate flavour and with its low glycemic index, Acacia Honey does not cause a "sugar rush" like some supermarket honeys which are diluted with sugar syrups.

RULES FOR USING HONEY IN BAKING
- Honey is very sweet: With the amount to one glass of sugar in the recipe, use the same amount of honey. At the amount of the glass, replace each glass of sugar with 2/3 to 3/4 glass of honey.
- Honey contains water: Using more than one glass of honey instead of sugar, reduce 1/4 cup of liquid for one glass of honey.
- Honey is browning faster: Lower the baking temperature by 5 degrees and check the browning level every 10-15 minutes.
- Honey is slightly sour: For baking, add 1/4 teaspoon baking soda to a glass of honey (if it is not in the recipe). This will reduce acidity and ensure good dough rise.
- The taste of honey: Honey-flavoured light does not significantly affect the taste of baking, but stronger varieties, such as buckwheat honey, can give their specific flavour and aroma.
