Late Summer Honey from the Norwegian Fjords, Raw & Pure
Our Late Summer Honey is collected by our bees on the peninsula of Nesodden in the Oslofjord, between Drøbak and Oslo. The peninsula has a rich and various flora, with plenty of forest and wildflowers.
The Norwegian summer last from 1st of June until 31st of August. This honey is made from nectar from flowers blooming between the last weeks of July and end of August. Usually white clover, small-leaved lime / small-leaved linden and true heather contributes quite well to this honey.
Our honey is always raw - unheated and unfiltered. We only produce raw honey, because we want our honey to be the way nature made it for us.
Our Late Summer Honey has a rich and slightly dark flavour. It is not as strong and dark as our Heather Honey.
We prefer this honey when we don’t want the honey to be too strong or too sweet. We use it as a spread, with the cereal, for sauces and dips and for baking.
It can of course be used like other types of honey for marinating food or next to a board of charcuterie, on the yogurt or ice cream.
All honey has a long shelf life. When stored dark at stable room temperature (approx. 20°C / 68°F) creamy honey will stay stable and not change consistency.
It is a tradition in Norwegian to always cream the honey. Norwegian beekeepers rarely sell liquid honey. To make our honey creamy, we gently stir our honey for a few minutes several times a day. This way we break the sugar crystals as they are forming in the honey. After about two weeks, it becomes creamy and delicate, containing billions of tiny crystals.
If creamy honey is heated or has been placed at a warm spot for a while, the crystals will start melting, and the honey is about to become liquid again. If so happens, you can choose to either melt it leaving it in warm water or give it a gently stir. If leaving it in warm water, make sure the temperature doesn’t exceed 45°C (113°F). By gently stirring it, you are mixing the remaining crystals with what is melted, and the honey will eventually become creamy again. You might have to stir it gently a couple of times a day for a while.
