Overview: Our intensely mature raw forest honey is the darkest honey in our selection. This particular honey is harvested from a variety of floral and honeydew sources that are present in the wild forests of Northern Spain. It is wonderfully intense, treacly and has a distinctive woody component to its aroma. Containing honeydew from the mighty oak tree, it is a really robust, strong and persistent honey. Slightly varying in taste, colour and texture from season to season, it is raw, natural and unpasteurized, as nature intended.
Colour: Dark amber with a slightly greenish hue.
Aroma: Floral, intense and persistent aroma with a clear woody component.
Taste: A sweet taste with salty notes and a hint of bitterness.
Harvest Season: Spring.
Floral Source: The sources include Oak, Chestnut, Rubus, Heather, Fabaceae, Cistaceae (Rock Rose) and Lamiaceae (flowering herbs).
Geography: Harvested from the dense forests of Burgos and Soria.
Forest Honey Uses: A wonderful addition to marinades and excellent drizzled over toasted cereal. A teaspoon a day for good measure!

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).
