The high value of lime honey gives it a special place among honey types. It works as a beneficial treatment during colds, and is recommended for people with low blood pressure.
Lime honey is bright yellow, with a distinctive scent of lime blossoms, and has an outstanding, long-lasting and slightly spicy menthol flavour. It is not necessarily clear and it usually crystallises rapidly.
You can eat lime honey on its own, or you can spread it on bread or add it to tea, flakes, yogurt, ricotta, pudding, or pastries. You can also mix it with warm water, milk, tea, or cider vinegar. When preparing drinks, be careful not to put honey in liquid that is 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.
Raw lime honey.
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.
