This is such a special honey in its make up of various nectar tones. It has a warm gentle fig like clean taste. Not too sweet in its composition, aroma or flavour. One to try!
From the many flowers of our Surrey apiary sites. Summer time is a busy time for our bees, gathering the rich nectars from the many wildflowers in the nearby woods and fields.
Believe it or not there is an official honey colour grading system used at honey shows all over the UK. There are two glass colour grades to use to compare , light, medium, dark. The glass is placed against the side of the honey jar with a white background. The light glass is used to define the borderline between ‘light’ and ‘medium’ honey, a ‘light’ honey being one lighter than the light glass.
The dark glass is used to define the borderline between a ‘medium’ and a ‘dark’ honey, a dark honey being darker than the dark glass. This honey is medium and tastes different from our light wildflower, so hence the name! A runny honey with a medium, rich flavour.
Serving suggestions: in tea or coffee, as an alternative sweetener, with yoghurt, on cereal, as a glaze for meat dishes and fruit loaves. Great for baking rich moist cakes and fabulous flapjacks.
