King of honey
We call heather honey ‘the King of Honey’. This fragrant and spicy honey has a full flavor and fairly can be called a delicacy. Heather honey is very popular and is sometimes only available for a few weeks a year. Liquid gold!
The special thing about this honey is the specific taste and the jelly-like structure. Good quality heather honey is so stiff that the jar can be held upside down without the honey spilling. This is how firmly the honey is inside the comb, which therefore makes extracting heather honey more labor-intensive than any other honey. It is spinned twice: we call the honey that comes out of the comb the first time heather honey melange .
Heather honey is very healthy. It contains the most anti-oxidants and minerals. In addition, heather honey is even expectorant.
Enjoy every day. Heather honey is often spread thinly on a sandwich. Delicious with cheese!
In addition to heather honey in jars, we also sell heather honey in their combs. A slice of this on bread is delicious too!
Origin Heather honey
Our heather honey comes from Dutch soil. The bee colonies are placed on the heathland at the beginning of August and remain there until mid-September.
This is the time when the heather is in beautiful purple bloom, and therefore also the time to collect the heather honey.
