Honeycomb Heather

11.25

Heather Honeycomb is a selection of the best honeycomb from our beehives which were moved to the mountains in late summer to forage on Ling Heather. Honeycomb is a delicious treat and tastes wonderful on its own or as an accompaniment to fruit, yoghurt or a cheeseboard. The whole comb can be eaten, the beeswax is lightly chewy. Cut straight from the hive, this honey is as pure as can be.

Description

Irish Heather Honeycomb, produced in the Comeragh Mountains, Co. Waterford. This honey is pure raw Irish heather honey from our own honeybees. We keep Native Irish Honeybees. As a small, artisan food producer, we produce small batches of exquisite honey. Heather Honeycomb is a selection of the best honeycomb from our beehives. Because it is cut straight from the hive, this honey is as pure as can be.

Flavour and consistency

Our heather honey is dark in colour and has a powerful taste and aroma. Our bees make it from nectar from ling heather, Calluna vulgaris. During the end of summer, we move a select few colonies up to the mountains to forage on the ling blossoms and produce this most sought after honey. Heather honey is jelly-like in consistency and also has tiny air bubbles in it. Because it has a strong woody and floral taste it is delicious with a chunk of cheese and biscuits or with yoghurt and fruit. It is also delicious on its own as a rare treat. Because it is all natural, the whole comb can be eaten, the beeswax is lightly chewy. Heather honey makes a wonderful gift for a honey lover.

Storing

Pure raw honey will crystallise naturally. Therefore we recommend keeping your honeycomb frozen until needed to delay crystallisation and then store at room temperature.

Make sure not to overheat the honey, as it will destroy some of the enzymes that are so beneficial in raw honey.

Do not give raw honey to infants under 12 months.
