Oh how I LOVE Thee, my sweet sweet Honey Bee!!
I think my awareness of raw honey came from my Grandpa Bobby, he and my Grandma always had honey in their house, and it was ALWAYS RAW. "Honey is the best thing for you" he would always say, and I always thought it was because he liked his sweets just as much as me! But, not only is honey sweet is has some MAJOR health benefits.
Here are a few just from the top of my head:
- It doesn't ferment in the stomach and it can be used to counteract acid indigestion.
- When mixed with ginger and lemon juices, it effectively relieves nausea and supplies energy.
- It' also one of nature most natural sweeteners.
Yes, Raw is the best way to go. When buying honey it's probably not too difficult to remember well what "raw" means when you associate it with uncooked vegetables and meat whereby any form of heating is avoided so as to ensure all the natural vitamins and living enzymes and other nutritional elements are preserved.
Raw honey is the most original sweet liquid that honeybees produce from the concentrated nectar of flowers. Collected straight from the honey extractor; it is totally unheated, unpasteurized, unprocessed honey.
Yes, there are a TON of companies out there provided Raw Natural Honey, but the main reason we decided to go with the brand Drizzle, is because just look at their packaging!! Gift ready, super cute and perfect in your cupboard or on your counter beside your teapot.
In the owner, Aja's work as an environmental scientist leading beekeeping projects for both culinary and agricultural research, she came to appreciate the increasingly urgent need to support sustainability in beekeeping. She also wanted to celebrate the complex and precious gift that honey bees create.
Drizzle was born out of a desire to showcase the unique qualities of raw, unadulterated honey while empowering sustainable production in beekeeping.
Drizzle Honey brings sophistication, exceptional taste, and seasonal beauty to your table. We keep our honey raw, and rich with healthy pollen, enzymes, and minerals.
When we first brought in this brand they only had 2 flavors, Spring and Summer. Who would have thought honey could have 2 different seasons and flavors, but YES it's true, depending o what was being pollinated and which nectar was gathers makes a big difference in the taste and flavor of the honey itself. They still have their Spring Honey (now called White), and Summer Honey (now called Golden) but they have a few other flavors with extra benefits.
In the meantime, let's talk about adding honey to more than just to sweeten your tea...
