Honey is a very special bee product for us and our work with and for honey is based on real love. Love for the bees that are among the greatest creatures on earth. Love for their unique product - honey. Love of careful work with bees and their honey.
Below we present in detail all the honeys that you will find in our assortment. You will learn all about the ingredients and special features of the individual honey varieties:
White fir honey is the specialty of our house and a real premium honey. White fir honey is very rare and highly appreciated as a rarity with strong taste and valuable health-promoting ingredients among honey lovers from all over the world.
What is white fir honey?
White fir honey belongs to the category of forest honey and is a honeydew honey. The honey is therefore not obtained from flower nectar, but from honeydew. Honeydew is a liquid excreted by insects that sit on the needles of the white fir and absorb the ingredients such as essential oils of the white fir. The bees absorb the honeydew and process it further into honey. The insects that absorb the plant juices of the white fir are shield lice. These microorganisms are therefore originally responsible for the white fir honey.
Where does the white fir honey come from?
Extensive white fir forests exist in Central and Eastern Europe, for example in the Black Forest, the Czech Republic or Poland. The white fir grows in mountainous regions between 500 meters and 2,800 meters.
White fir honey is so rare because the dryness and heat of the last few years also make the dry and the heat of the last years very difficult. These unfavourable weather conditions ensure that there is not enough plant juice for the lice and therefore not for the bees. Good harvests are therefore only available about every 3 years and if the development of temperatures continues in this way, white fir honey becomes even rarer.
Moreover, the term 'fir honey' is protected. This means that a white fir honey can only be described as such if it actually comes from the honeydew of the white firs. Our white fir honey is a real Black Forest white fir honey.
What makes white fir honey so special?
White fir honey is so popular due to its dark color and its strong, spicy taste with a slightly malty note. It is not as sweet as a flower honey, but rather with a slightly tart taste. It remains liquid for longer than other honeys. Should the white fir honey crystallize (a completely natural process, which does not represent a quality disadvantage), you can liquefy the honey again by slowly heating it in the water bath. Please be careful not to heat the honey above 40 degrees, otherwise the valuable ingredients will be lost.
What are the ingredients of white fir honey?
Here we come to another advantage of white fir honey. Our white fir honey has an antioxidant effect. This is due to its high content of minerals, trace elements, amino acids and enzymes, as well as essential oils. The ratio of fructose to glucose is about 1:3.
Due to its valuable ingredients, white fir honey is considered to be very healthy:
• It is used in children against iron deficiency.
• Due to the high proportion of essential oils, white fir honey is used for respiratory diseases (here you can find recipes with honey for colds)
• In addition, white fir honey should generally have an anti-infection effect
Buy white fir honey - that's what you need to pay attention to
As already described, white fir honey is very rare due to the limited white fir deposits and the poor climatic conditions due to climate change. In Germany, it comes from the Black Forest, but also has to be imported often due to demand. The problem here is that white fir honey from abroad can also come from spruce or honey is mixed by spruce.
Our honey is Black Forest white fir honey in the best quality. We offer it in 4 variants: in honey glass of 500gr or in a golden honey bucket of 1kg, 2.5kg or 4.7kg.

Acacia honey is a very popular honey and is used not only for direct consumption but also for sweetening food or drinks.
What is acacia honey?
With this type of honey, we have to be very precise right from the start. The honey, which you usually get under the name acacia honey, is not actually an acacia honey, because it almost invariably does not come from the real acacia, but from the false acacia, the robinia. Both plant species are very similar, but botanically not even related to each other.
Acacias thrive in the tropical to subtropical climate, while the robinia also thrives in our latitudes due to climate adaptation and is mainly native to the extensive primeval forests of Eastern Europe.
Due to the similarity of the two trees, the honey of Robinia can also be officially referred to as acacia honey.
For bees, robinias and acacias are real bee pastures due to their lush white flowers with high levels of nectar. Therefore, acacia honey tastes very mild and sweet and has an almost clear color.
Where does acacia honey come from?
As already described, the robinia has adapted well to the climatic conditions of Central and Southern Europe. In the pristine and extensive primeval forests of the Cape species there are large contiguous Robinia populations. Fortunately, these magnificent forests are a Unesco World Heritage Site and are under special protection.
In our claim to choose the best honey, this dreamlike acacia honey from Ukraine convinced us of a rare variety purity and a very good price-performance ratio compared to that from other countries.
What makes acacia honey so special?
Acacia honey is characterized by a very mild taste. Its aroma is quite strong to intense. The colour of the acacia honey is almost clear to golden yellow. As a sweetener, it is ideal and therefore often replaces household sugar in the kitchen.
Here you will find many recipe ideas with acacia honey.
Acacia honey harvests have been very bad in recent years due to climatic changes and we are pleased to be able to offer you this pure acacia honey at this attractive price.
What ingredients does acacia honey have?
Acacia honey is characterized by a relatively balanced ratio of fruit and glucose. Other valuable ingredients such as trace elements, minerals, vitamins and enzymes make it so special. Due to its high fructose content, acacia honey remains liquid for much longer than other honeys before it begins crystallization.
Our acacia honey is honey in the best quality. We offer it in 4 variants: in honey glass of 500gr or in a golden honey bucket of 1kg, 2.5kg or 4.7kg.
Here you can buy our acacia honey.
In addition to the white fir honey, lavender honey is another noble and rare premium honey. For many honey lovers, it is the "non plus ultra" among honey varieties.
What is lavender honey?
Lavender honey is a very special type of honey produced by bees that fly the lavender flowers and collect the nectar there. In Provence there are huge lavender fields, which are mostly cultivated in ecological cultivation. Here bees find enough food to produce this extraordinary honey.
We have maintained excellent relationships with a beekeeper from France who places her bee colonies within this beautiful lavender area and thus produces honey of the best quality. It is important to know that the fields are also specially created and maintained for the production of honey. This is the only way to ensure that the bees can collect nectar in abundance and process it into honey. The excess of lavender honey, which the bees do not need themselves, is traded. The pictures of the specially designed lavender fields in the High Provence are now world famous.
The flowering time of the lavender is from June to August. During this time, the bees have a lot to do to harvest the nectar of the lavender flowers.
Where does lavender honey come from?
The largest lavender areas are found in Provence in France and Bulgaria. In Provence, all 4 species of lavender native to Europe are found, which are optimally planted according to the regional weather conditions.
We aim to select only the best honeys for our range. This dreamlike lavender honey from Provence in the south of France convinced us right away. The lavender fields in the south of France are unique in the world.
In our constant search for the best honeys, we are not
Lavender honey, which has a better and more varietal quality than this lavender honey from the south of France.
The harvest of lavender honey is very weather-dependent and cannot always be guaranteed. Therefore, we are pleased that we can offer you this rarity in the highest quality.
What makes lavender honey so special?
Lavender honey does not taste exclusively like lavender. The uniquely delicate and creamy consistency, as well as the light to slightly brownish hue, is considered a typical characteristic. Our lavender honey has a floral light, completely noble and very fine aroma.
Like lavender itself, lavender honey has a high proportion of essential oils. Therefore, lavender honey is also attributed to healing powers and is used for ailments such as colds or gastrointestinal problems. Some also refer to it as a natural antibiotic because of its antibacterial effect.
Lavender honey can also have a balancing effect when it is nervous. A teaspoon of lavender honey in the tea or a lavender bath can work wonders.
Buy lavender honey - what should you look out for?
Pay attention to the origin of lavender honey. Lavender honey can also be bought as a mass-produced product in the supermarket. But it often does not have the same quality.
Our lavender honey is honey in the best quality. We offer it in 2 variants: in honey glass of 500gr or in a golden honey bucket of 2.5kg.

The lime tree is a special tree for humans. In villages it often forms the village center on the village square or it line streets and magnificent avenues. In addition, the lime tree is a tree of which 2 different types of honey are produced: lime honey and lime blossom honey. Both types of honey are fantastic, taste excellent and are also known for their healing powers.
What is the difference between lime honey and lime blossom honey?
Although both honeys come from the lime tree, they differ significantly. Lime blossom honey is a pure flower honey. This means the honey is obtained from the nectar of the lime blossoms.
Linden honey, on the other hand, is a mixture of flower honey and honeydew honey. In honeydew, the bees collect the honeydew from lice that absorb the plant juice and excrete it as a sticky liquid. This liquid collect bees and process it into honey.
What makes lime honey so special?
Linden honey is produced by honeydew. Since lice exclude the plant juice from linden trees, the lime tree needs a lot of moisture to produce it. This means that even lime trees, which have an increased need for water anyway, suffer from the hot and dry weather of recent years and the lime honey harvests are worse than in normal years.
As a result, lime honey varies from year to year and from region to region depending on weather conditions. The amount of honey in the lime honey determines colour and taste. The colour palette of the lime honey can range from yellow to dark orange to caramel.
In terms of taste, the lime honey is in principle slightly floral to spicy. The honey has a subtle aroma of medicinal herbs, characteristic is a slight aftertaste of menthol. Despite its spicy, strong taste, lime honey is never heavy.
Is lime honey healthy?
The lime tree is a tree to which many healing powers are attributed. The same applies to lime honey. In the case of nervous conditions, lime honey helps with a calming and sleep-promoting effect. So if you have a glass of milk with honey before bed, you should use lime honey. It is also very suitable for sweetening in drinks such as tea.
Its antiseptic and anti-inflammatory effects should also be highlighted.
Above all, lime honey is used for cold swells. A hot lime blossom tea with a spoonful of lime honey "relieves" the symptoms of coughing or bronchitis. The essential oils of the lime have a slimy effect.
Buy lime honey - what should you look out for?
When buying lime honey, make sure that you have a good quality and a high purity of varieties. The lime honey from Honig-Schmidt is characterized by an intense and strong linden aroma.
Our lime honey is honey in the best quality. We offer it in 2 variants: in honey glass of 500gr or in a golden honey bucket of 2.5kg.

Pine honey is another honey that is rather rare and very special. Pine honey is a honeydew honey. This means that the hardworking bees do not fly flowers to collect nectar, but absorb the honeydew, which emerges from the pine trees as a sugary, sticky liquid. More specifically, microorganisms such as shield and gutting lice absorb the valuable plant juice of the pine and excrete it as honeydew. This benefits the bees, which then convert the honeydew into honey.
Already in honeydew there are many organic acids, vitamins and sugars.
Where does the pine honey come from?
Large deposits of pine forests can be found around the Mediterranean, especially in the Greek and Turkish Aegean Seas. Pinetrees reach a height of 30 meters and besides the honey and wood of the pine, it is above all also the pine nuts, which are often used pure or in the kitchen.
In our claim to choose the best honey, this pine honey from Greece convinced us compared to Turkish due to its particularly full-bodied aroma and a more intense colour scheme. Our pine honey comes from a beekeeper who has ecologically oriented his entire honey production and harvests the valuable honey gently.
What is special about pine honey?
If you want to try a new honey variety, our pine honey is just right. The taste is strong and spicy and when the honey is opened, a fine aroma emanates – wonderfully Mediterranean-scented of pine and herbs of the South.
Pine honey is also given some healing powers. A spoonful of honey-schmidt pine honey in a cup of tea has a mucous effect and relieves the coughing irritation in cold diseases. In addition, it boosts the immune balance. The pine honey can also be used in many different ways in the kitchen, especially for desserts. But it also gives a marinade a certain extra touch.
Buy pine honey - what should you look out for?
When purchasing the pine honey, pay attention to the quality and a high purity of varieties. Our beekeeper friend Asterios from Greece produces honey according to ecological considerations.
Our pine honey is honey in the best quality. We offer it in 2 variants: in honey glass of 500gr or in a golden honey bucket of 2.5kg.
Here you can buy pine honey.
Another mild and very aromatic honey is rosemary honey. Rosemary is neither a tree nor a flower, but a spicy herb, which is appreciated for its essential oils in the kitchen and to which some healing powers are attributed.
Those who have been to the south of Europe in February or March will have enjoyed the intense scent of wild-flowering rosemary. For bees, this wild-flowering rosemary with its blue flowers is a true magnet and a bee pasture. The resulting honey captures this fragrance as a wonderful aroma.
Although rosemary blooms almost all year round, the rosemary honey harvest usually takes place from April to summer.
Where does rosemary honey come from?
Rosemary is also increasingly found in gardens in our latitudes, but the traditional cultivated areas are found in southern European countries such as Spain, Greece or Italy. In addition to the rosemary fields, wild-flowering rosemary is also widely spread there, so that beekeepers can produce the best rosemary honey here.
Wild-growing rosemary shrubs are also the ones that give our rosemary honey its intense color and noble flavor. In our claim to choose the best honey, this rosemary honey from Spain convinced us with a subtle and very fine rosemary note, as well as its excellent consistency and colouring.
What makes rosemary honey so special?
Rosemary contains a high number of essential oils used to produce fragrances. Above all, however, people use these essential oils for the preparation of food, as well as for alleviating discomfort.
Due to its origin, rosemary is an excellent match for Mediterranean dishes and for refining strong meat dishes. Rosemary honey is also used for the production of special marinades. In our blog you will find some recipes for which rosemary honey is suitable – especially the rosemary-honey soup.
But the healing effect of rosemary honey has also been known for centuries. The essential oils can provide relief for coughing and sore throat by loosening a teaspoon of rosemary honey into herbal tea. Rosemary is also used for stomach problems.
Buy rosemary honey - what should you look out for?
Make sure you buy pure rosemary honey. Often other honey is added to the rosemary honey to soften the rosemary aroma. However, this distorts the taste. Our rosemary honey is 100% varietal honey.
Rosemary honey crystallizes faster than other honeys. This is an absolutely natural process and not an indication of a reduced quality – on the contrary. If you want to liquefy the honey again, simply place it in a warm water bath. Be careful not to heat the honey above 40 degrees to preserve the valuable ingredients of the rosemary honey.
Our rosemary honey is honey in the best quality. We offer it in 2 variants: in honey glass of 500gr or in a golden honey bucket of 2.5kg.

Who doesn't know and love them, the large sunflower fields where the huge sunflowers with their large yellow flowers stretch towards the sun in summer? We find this summer splendor you taste with every spoon full of sunflower honey.
Originally from North and Central America, the sunflower was revered by the Incas as an image of your sun god.
The sunflower is a robust and resistant plant and has been cultivated in our latitudes since the 17th century. Sunflower oil and sunflower seeds are two other products made from sunflower.
The sunflower with its rich yellow color always turns towards the sun during the day. You can taste this intense sun aroma in our sunflower honey.
Sunflower honey is one of the most creamy and aromatic honeys. The honeybees fly over huge fields full of sunflowers and taste the delicious nectar. This honey is currently considered by beekeepers to be one of the best honeys ever. Sunflower honey is not easy to extract. The sunflowers need plenty of sunshine and warmth, as well as enough moisture to form enough nectar for the sunflower honey.
The sunflower honey is characterized by a strong yellow color. It can be candied very quickly and can take on a yellowish to yellow-brown color for freshly hurled honeys.
Sunflower honey is produced between mid-July and mid-August.
For the production of sunflower honey, it is important that the sunflowers are grown without any exposure to pesticides and the like. Special breeding fields are available for this purpose. In addition, the sunflower honey can be extracted particularly well by the process of cold slinging. This gentle way of preparation ensures the incomparable, mild taste, which comes without any rigour. Sunflower honey therefore takes on a beautiful yellow colour, which makes you want more when looking at the glass.
What makes sunflower honey so special?
Sunflower honey is also often used in the kitchen. It is mainly used as a particularly tasty and natural sweetener. He likes to use it to sweeten jams or fruit salads. It can also give fruity desserts the special sweetness. Sunflower honey is also often used in Asian cuisine, where it can once again underline the typical sweet and sour taste.
The medicinal effect of sunflower honey should not be underestimated. Did you know that in Japanese and Chinese schools, eating 50g of honey daily is mandatory for schoolchildren? Sunflower honey is often used here.
Sunflower honey contains important minerals, trace elements and vitamin such as vitamin D, E, B1, B2, B6, C and K.
In naturopathy, sunflower honey is traditionally used for colds. Add a teaspoon of honey to the slightly cooled tea. Alternatively, mix 100g sunflower honey with the juice of 1 lemon and consume 1 tbsp 3x daily. This alleviates cold problems.
Buy sunflower honey - you have to pay attention to this:
Sunflower honey crystallizes faster than other honeys. But this is not a lack of quality – quite the opposite! Sunflower honey, like many other honey sorts, is heated for bottling. If it is to be done quickly, the honey is not only heated, but heated quickly. But be careful: from a temperature of more than 40 degrees, the vitamins in sunflower honey are completely destroyed. If the honey is heated even more strongly, other valuable additives such as enzymes or destroyed and the honey loses its antibacterial properties.
There is another clue to why the crystallization of honey is a characteristic of a special, natural honey. Honey produced by the fact that the bees do not collect the nectar of flowers or the honeydew from trees, but by feeding them with sugar water contains no nutrients and does not crystallize. But it's also a dead food. Many industrially produced supermarket honeys are made in this way. Therefore, you will hardly find a high-quality sunflower honey in the supermarket.
Another tip for crystallization: you can liquefy the honey again by heating it in a water bath. Of course very slowly and not above 40 degrees.
We slowly heat the sunflower honey in our honey factory and pay attention to the right temperature. By constantly stirring, we preserve the excellent creaminess. The honey is then allowed to rest before it is bottled by us.
Our sunflower honey is honey in the best quality. We offer it in 2 variants: in honey glass of 500gr or in a golden honey bucket of 2.5kg.
Here you can buy sunflower honey.
Fir honey is one of the most popular honey strains and is a rarer variety. This is because it is not a nectar honey, i.e. a flower honey, but a honeydew honey.
In the case of honeydew honey, the honey is basically produced by the plant juice of the fir trees. To be more precise, small shield and gutting lice pick up the plant juice, excrete it and place the sticky honeydew on the pine needles, where it retains its aroma. From there, the bees collect it and process it further into spicy fir honey.
Fir honey is rare. This is due to the fact that only every 3-5 years such a propagation of the small lice occurs and therefore in many years no or very little fir honey is produced. In addition, the extremely hot weather conditions add to the fir trees, so that not enough plant juice can be formed. Fir honey can therefore be described as a rarity.
Where does fir honey come from?
In Germany, large pine trees are traditionally found almost exclusively in the Black Forest. Fir honey is also produced in other European countries, mostly in mid-mountain regions. In France and Spain it comes from the unspoilt landscape of the Pyrenees, in Poland rather in the south of the country, such as the magnificent Bialowieza jungle on the border with Belarus and in the Czech Republic fir honey mostly comes from the Bohemian forests.
Also the magnificent forests of the cape species in Slovakia, Romania and Ukraine, which are largely protected by nature, offer the possibility of fir honey production.
What is special about fir honey?
Like other forest honeys, fir honey has a dark color, a rather viscous consistency, as well as a spicy, almost malty taste. Fir honey has a wonderful, resinous aroma – unmistakable with a fir note.
Fir honey has many trace elements, minerals and vitamins. Due to its increased antibacterial effect and the essential oils contained, fir honey is particularly appreciated and used in naturopathy for the treatment of colds and respiratory problems. It also alleviates the symptoms of urinary tract diseases.
Compared to other honeys, fir honey hardly crystallizes and later. In general, crystallization of honey is not a lack of quality – quite the contrary! Honey produced by the fact that the bees do not collect the nectar of flowers or the honeydew from trees, but by feeding them with sugar water contains no nutrients and does not crystallize. But it's also a dead food. Many industrially produced supermarket honeys are made in this way.
Another tip for crystallization: you can liquefy the honey again by heating it in a water bath. Of course, very slowly and not above 40 degrees, so that the valuable ingredients in the fir honey are preserved.
Buy fir honey - that's what you should pay attention to

Heather honey is a special type of honey or a speciality in honey. During the harvest he does a "heathen work" and there are also some special features.
The traditional plant for the heather honey is the broom heath, which blooms in late summer and from whose flowers the hard-working bees collect the nectar as the basis for the heather honey. The Besenheide is also called heather or summer heath and comes originally from North and Central America. It is a low shrub that occurs from the lowlands to the mountains and cultivates typical heathland such as the Lüneburg Heath. The Latin name "Calluna" derives from the Greek word "kalynein" and means as much as clean, sweep. There is already an indication that the name Broom heath derives from the fact that the plant was previously processed into brooms.
What is special about heather honey?
For the beekeeper, the harvest of the heather honey is very expensive. Since the consistency of the heather honey is rather jelly-like, the honey cannot be thrown out of the honeycombs by the beekeepers, as usual. The honey is therefore not thrown, but pressed out of the honeycombs. The production of heather honey is therefore much more complex than with other honey varieties. A "heathen work" that pays off with this special honey.
The jelly-like consistency is also due to the particularly high content of colloids and protein compounds.
The heather honey is also unique in taste, with a very spicy to tart flavour. This does not agree with everyone, but heather honey lovers appreciate it all the more.
Heather honey is also appreciated for its health-promoting effect. In addition to a variety of minerals, trace elements and vitamins, a higher proportion of antioxidants can be found especially in heather honey.
In naturopathy, heather honey is used for nervous conditions and colds. Heather flower tea with a teaspoon of heather honey promotes sleep. In addition, heather honey is also used for prostate problems.
Buy heather honey - what do you have to pay attention to?
Make sure that your heather honey is high-quality beekeeping honey that has been gently harvested and processed. We process the heather honey gently and slowly in our honey factory. The honey is then allowed to rest before it is bottled by us.
Varietal heather honey has a dark amber colour. Should it crystallize, it will take on a brown color with reddish nuances. Generally, crystallization of honey is not a lack of quality – quite the contrary! Honey produced by the fact that the bees do not collect the nectar of flowers or the honeydew from trees, but by feeding them with sugar water contains no nutrients and does not crystallize.
Another tip for crystallization: you can liquefy the honey again by heating it in a water bath. Of course, very slowly and not above 40 degrees, so that the valuable ingredients in the heather honey are preserved.
Our heather honey is pure honey in the best quality. We offer it in 2 variants: in honey glass of 500gr or in a golden honey bucket of 2.5kg.
Here you can buy heather honey.
A honey may only be referred to as wildflower honey if it is ensured that the honeybees have collected the nectar exclusively from the flowers of wild plants. A pure wildflower honey was therefore guaranteed to be collected in a nature untouched by humans, because domesticated crops must not serve as a basis for wildflower honey.
In our industrial-agricultural landscape, it is therefore not easy to produce pure wild flower honey. This rare type of honey therefore often comes from the low mountains of central and especially Eastern Europe, where there are still many untouched areas without intensive agriculture. It is mostly imported from Guatemala from overseas.
The industrious bees collect the nectar from different flowers of wild plants, flowers and herbs.
What is special about wildflower honey?
The colour of the wildflower honey is light to amber and its taste mild and sweet, albeit quite strong.
Therefore, wildflower honey is also used for sweetening food and salads.
When processing wild flower honey, we pay attention to gentle harvesting and, above all, processing. So that we do not have to heat the honey, it is constantly stirred and thus finally gets its delicate melting, creamy consistency. Excessive heating would liquefy the honey and also lose valuable ingredients.
In principle, wildflower honey does not crystallize faster than other honey. Crystallization of honey is not a lack of quality – quite the opposite! Honey produced by the fact that the bees do not collect the nectar of flowers or the honeydew from trees, but by feeding them with sugar water contains no nutrients and does not crystallize.
Another tip for crystallization: you can liquefy the honey again by heating it in a water bath. Of course, very slowly and not above 40 degrees, so that the valuable ingredients in the heather honey are preserved.
Buy wildflower honey - what should you look out for?
Make sure you buy high quality wild flower honey. Often, terms such as multi-flower honey are used in honey. This does not necessarily indicate a wildflower honey – probably the opposite. Also, wildflower honey should not be mixed if possible. Sometimes wildflower honey is mixed from different countries, as the yields from one region or country are insufficient.
Our wildflower honey is honey in the best quality. We offer it in 4 variants: in honey glass of 500gr or in a golden honey bucket of 1kg, 2.5kg or 4.7kg.
Here you can buy wildflower honey.
Forest honey is our best-selling honey, which we ship almost daily all over the world.
Forest honey is a honeydew honey, i.e. the bees do not collect flower nectar, but a sticky liquid, which they process into honey. This liquid called honeydew is excreted by microorganisms, to be more precise of shield, leaf and gutting lice, and deposited on needles and leaves of the trees. These small creatures feed on the plant juice of the trees.
And now it's going to be exciting in terms of forest honey. Every forest honey and possibly the costume of each year tastes different, because the insects transform the plant juice in different ways. In addition, there are different tree species in mixed forests and the choice of trees that are flown by the bees also determines the taste. In any case, you will taste the variety of nature in forest honey, i.e. in forest honey you will find aromas of fir, spruce, oak, maple or pine.
Among connoisseurs, the white fir honey is the premium honey among the forest honeys. It is a varietal honey and very rare. It is not available indefinitely and if we offer it in the range, you should definitely secure something.
But back to the forest honey. What makes forest honey so special?
Forest honey has a darker colour scheme and a slightly viscous consistency. It also possesses many valuable ingredients such as minerals, enzymes and vitamins. Due to the valuable ingredients, forest honey is often used for colds and complaints in the neck area. Due to the essential oils contained in the forest honey, this is used as a home remedy for bronchial diseases.
In addition, forest honey is often used in the kitchen, especially for the production of marinades and as an addition to strong meat dishes. But it is also used for baking. In our blog you will find many suggestions for cooking with forest honey in the "Recipes" section.
Due to its lower glucose content, forest honey remains liquid for longer than other honeys before crystallizing. Crystallization of honey is not a lack of quality – quite the opposite! Honey produced by the fact that the bees do not collect the nectar of flowers or the honeydew from trees, but by feeding them with sugar water contains no nutrients and does not crystallize.
Another tip for crystallization: you can liquefy the honey again by heating it in a water bath. Of course, very slowly and not above 40 degrees, so that the valuable ingredients are preserved in the forest honey.
Buy forest honey - that's what you should pay attention to
Make sure you buy high quality forest honey. Our gently harvested forest honey is carefully processed in our honey factory.
