Considered one of the rarest out there. A quality, malty and rich flavour that is perfect for making honey ice cream.
Delicious honeydew honey, simply filtered through muslin cloth and jarred right away without any processing. Choose from 2 sizes of jar - 400g or 1kg.
Honeydew honey is produced by bees using honeydew, which like nectar, is a sugary liquid that derives from sap. Bees can produce honey by collecting and transforming two different nutrients: nectar and honeydew. The honeydew however is not produced directly from plants, but from insects that absorb sap from plants. They secrete a product still rich in nutrients, especially sugars: honeydew. Honeydew droplets stick to leaves, branches, barks and so on; the bees find it, collect it and produce honey.
The average jar is dark amber with a reddish tint when held to the light. Compared with lighter-coloured varieties, honeydew honey isn’t as sweet and tastes rich and malty, plus it stays a liquid for longer than other nectar honey.
Due to the high quality of this honey any heat treatment should be avoided.
Even when making good old cuppa - avoid using this honey in very hot liquids.
Ice cream, on another hand, is a perfect choice due to slight bitterness of this honey.
• Anti-inflammatory and is a very strong antioxidant, providing a source of phytonutrients and B vitamins.
• Boosts immunity and helps naturally sooth a sore throat.
• Honeydew honey, compared to nectar honey, has less sugars (72% vs. 76%) and does not contain pollen.
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.
