Honey And It’s Different Flavours

The single question we get asked the most is, “How do you get different flavours of honey?” and the answer is – it all depends on where the bees buzz. Yes! The bees are responsible for this. They have to feed on a specific plant to render honey with unique flavours. Also the colour of these different flavours of honey ranges from nearly colourless to dark brown.

Remember this general rule, light-coloured honey is milder in taste and dark-coloured honey is stronger.
So now that you know that flavour & the colour of the honey differs depending on the nectar source (the blossoms) visited by the honey bees we would also like to introduce you to the fact that there are more than 300 unique types of honey available. Hard to believe, right?

Lets have a look at some of the most common floral flavours of honey.AVOCADO Honey

Of course we know that you love your guacamole but trust us Avacado Honey is no less. Avocado honey comes from the avocado blossom’s nectar. It is dark amber in colour and feels smooth and silky on the tongue. We personally think  that it is an excellent substitute for maple syrup. Try dunking a piece of hot corn bread or a biscuit into a bowl of avocado honey whipped with butter for a simple but comforting treat. It is also equally delicious over fresh cut juicy fruits, salty nuts and smooth, smoky cheeses.

BLUEBERRY Honey

The slight tangy & fruity flavour of the blueberry honey is so good that many people believe that its not natural but flavoured. Well, that’s not true! Blueberry Honey is created from the nectar that the bees have gathered from blueberry and cranberry blossoms.

BUCKWHEAT Honey
Compared with lighter-coloured varieties, buckwheat honey isn’t as sweet in taste. You’ll be amazed to know that the basic composition and nutritional profile of all types of honey are more or less similar but buckwheat honey has a little extra to offer. An increasing body of scientific research suggests that this dark-coloured, strongly- flavoured superfood has a number of interesting health benefits, including cough suppression and antioxidant protection.

ORANGE BLOSSOM
If you enjoy eating orange blossom honey for its unique and delicate flavors, you will be pleased to know that it’s more than just a sweet treat. Orange blossom honey, like many other honey varieties, has medicinal properties that support human health and well-being and can be used both internally and externally.
