For centuries Chestnut Honey has been reputed to aid digestion and boost the immune system and has been used in many traditional remedies. It is not an overly sweet honey but yet it's subtle herbal aroma and slightly bitter after taste makes it a fantastic addition to cheeses and salad dressings. Slightly varying taste, colour and texture from season to season, it is raw, natural and unpasteurized as nature intended.

Please note: If the honey sets (crystallizes) please don’t panic as it has not gone off. It is a natural characteristic of Raw Honey. Simply place your jar of raw honey in a glass bowl, quarter fill a pan with boiling water then place the bowl into the pan. The steam should heat the bowl, which heats the jar with out over heating it. Keep the water boiling by turning up the heat on the hob. Your honey should be runny again in 10 minutes or so (depending on size).
