It has a strong classical aroma, a taste resembling white sugar (without the bees having been fed with such) and therefore goes well with black tea and morning porridge. Sunflower honey is the great source of vitamins, minerals and simple "5 a day" sugars. It is especially popular with kids as it looks like Winnie The Pooh's honey.

It is simply filtered through muslin cloth and jarred right away without any processing. In fact, harmful substances and pollutants from the soil are retained in the sunflower stem, so the nectar that the bees collect remains intact. Sunflower crops are also not sprayed with insecticides, so you can be sure that this honey is pure.

You can always de-crystalise your honey by submerging jar in hot yet not boiling water and let both cool down. This way you are malting the honey but not pasteurising it.
• Sunflower honey has a healing effect with gastrointestinal diseases, the respiratory system, kidneys, skin issues and especially for the heart and circulatory system.
• It is useful for the rapid healing of wounds, burns and for the treatment of dermatitis, rhinitis and sinusitis, stimulating the immune system. As with other types of honey, it has anti-bacterial functions.
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.
