"A Raw Product from the Wilderness
Tropical Traditions Organic Raw Honey comes from the frontier areas of Canada, and is only harvested during a 6-week period in the summer. Tropical Traditions is the exclusive source of this premium organic honey in the U.S. Most commercial honeys available on the market today come from bee farms, where the bees are controlled within a certain area and get their pollen from usually only one kind of flower. Many of the plants that produce these flowers (clover, orange blossom, etc.) are grown with pesticides and fertilizers as well. In addition, almost all honeys on the market are pasteurized in high heat and filtered, removing many of the beneficial nutrients and enzymes.
Tropical Traditions Organic Raw Honey has not been subjected to the heat of processing, only warmed enough to flow (same temperatures the honey would see inside the hive). We select only premium honey that is pure, smooth and creamy, with the consistency of soft margarine at harvest. It contains live yeast and enzymes, because it has not been processed. It also contains pollen because it has not been filtered—merely screened.
Fine textured crystals are characteristic of totally pure, unheated, unprocessed, raw honey. Properly crystallized honey has a fine, smooth texture. Crystallized honey preserves natural goodness and doesn’t drip. The more rapidly honey crystallizes the finer the texture will be. It will also turn harder over time as it crystallizes. Truly raw honeys do not deteriorate with age, but like fine wines, continue to age and develop into more complex tastes."
I have been falling in love with all of Tropical Traditions products! I have not disliked anything I've tried from them so far! But I must say that I think that their Honey is by far my favorite product from them, not to mention my favorite honey ever!
I am a HUGE honey eater! It's my favorite sweetener. I use it in canning (instead of sugar), I use it to sweeten my hot cereal for breakfast, I use it in desserts, tea, and much more! When I receive my honey from Tropical Traditions I was pretty excited to try it. I tasted it with a spoon and it was seriously amazing! It was so good I had to share it with my family! My mom and sisters loved it too! In fact my mom loved it so much she is planning on making an order to get some!
If you get a chance you should order some! I don't think you would be disappointed! Especially if you are as much of a honey eater as I! ;-)
