Raw forest honey of Slovenian origin.
Honey is a natural sweet gift, given to us by bees that make it from flower nectar (floral honey) or from insect secretions that remain on trees as sticky liquid (honeydew honey). Floral honey types are wildflower honey, acacia honey, chestnut honey, lime honey, and canola honey; honeydew honey types are forest honey, fir honey, maple honey, oak honey, and spruce honey. Bees process nectar or honeydew, enrich it with their gland secretions, and store it in the beehive to ripen. Honey is the source of solar energy and life fuel in the beehive. It contains valuable nutrients, and is a rich nourishment and cosmetic substance.
The Zlati panj mountain honey tastes delicious as a bread spread, and as an addition to tea, flakes, yogurt, ricotta, pudding, or pastries. It also tastes great with fruit salads, or you can use it in different drinks and beverages. When preparing drinks, be careful not to put honey in liquids that are very hot, since its most important substances lose their healing properties at high temperatures.
Natural honey slowly crystallises, but heating it up to 40 °C liquifies it again and keeps all its natural properties and substances.
Store in a dark place with temperature below 25 °C.
