Honey

Honey shop online where to buy raw honey and purchase others kind of honey direct by the small producers, so you can be sure that the products are natural, organic and genuine.
The sweet, sticky syrup is made by bees from flower nectar and stored in wax honeycombs, ready to feed the growing bee larvae. Most commercial honey is drained from the honeycomb, usually by crushing, draining and straining, but it is sometimes available still in the comb (raw honey); more usually from independent beekeepers, delis and food shops.

How to store honey
Both set and clear honey have a long shelf life, although clear honey will eventually crystallise to
form set honey with a slightly crunchy texture. It is still perfectly safe to eat, but will be less suitable for cooking; although gentle heating will make it liquid again. Store in a sealed jar in a cool, dark place.

Culinary uses for honey
Although honey is technically sweeter than sugar, it tastes less sweet due to the other flavouring
substances, such as flower aromas, that it naturally contains. It can be used as a spread on bread, toast, crumpets, muffins and scones, and can also be used as a sweetener and flavouring. It is widely used in baking, in breads, cakes and biscuit mixtures, where it gives a moist, sticky, slightly dense result with a distinctive, scented fragrance. It can also be used to sweeten and flavour hot drinks such as herbal teas, hot toddies, milky drinks and the classic cold remedy made with lemon juice, boiling water and honey. It is the flavouring used in the old English drink, mead. Honey has a place in savoury cooking too. It is good when used to flavour dressings, and contributes both flavour and stickiness to glazes and marinades for meats such as chicken and gammon. It is often combined with mustard in savoury dishes, and goes well with warm spices such as ginger.

Types of honey
Most honeys are made from clover and other field flowers. But there are also many honeys made from specific types of flower, all of which have their own individual taste and aroma. Colour can range from pale yellow to amber-orange and deep reddish-brown, and texture can vary too, particularly among set honeys, which can range from smooth and creamy to more granular.
