True Ling Heather Honey from the Norwegian Mountains, Pure Raw Honey
True Ling Heather Honey collected from Calluna Vulgaris, the true ling heather, in the Norwegian Mountains. This is the honey for the true gourmands! We can promise it will be highly appreciated when hosting dinner parties with charcuterie or cheese platter, or maybe as a gift for the hosts.
True Ling Heather honey is raw - unheated and unfiltered. We only produce raw honey, because we want our honey to be the way nature made it for us.
True Ling Heather Honey
This honey is the True Ling Heather Honey from the flower Calluna Vulgaris. It must not be mistaken for the Heather Honey from the Erica flowers.
We take great effort and pride in finding the accurate location for our bees to collect the nectar for this honey. The area of course has to offer plenty of True Ling Heather, but it is also important that there aren’t other plants blooming at the same time as the True Ling Heather. That’s how we can provide this honey with such a strong, pungent flavour of the True Ling Heather.
The flavour of True Ling Heather Honey is one of the strongest and most pungent flavours amongst honey. The aftertaste is nearly bitter and lasts for a long time.
Some would say it tastes of autumn or caramel. Others describe the flavour as tangy, smoky and mildly sweet.
Commonly used as a spread or for marinating ham, chicken, lamb, seafood and cold meat dishes.
It is a popular and exclusive sweetener together with a plate of cheese, board of charcuterie, on the yogurt or ice cream. It also works well with tea and a cup of warm milk and honey.
Like Manuka Honey, True Ling Heather Honey has a thixotropic consistency. This means that the honey has a gel-like consistency but will become temporarily liquid when stirred.
True Ling Heather Honey has a high content of antioxidants, proteins, vitamins, minerals and polyphenols. It is said to have very high antibacterial effect.
A study from Ireland states: “Irish heather honey had the highest TPC of all Irish single origin honeys and had a higher TPC than Manuka honey.” You can read the study by clicking here.
As beekeepers we do not take any responsibility for what the scientist say. But we do like to see to the generations before us. From an old beekeeper we learned that giving the bees True Ling Heather Honey after the winter promotes their health. We saw a huge difference in the bee communities that were given True Ling Heather Honey at the beginning of spring compared to other types of honey. We now feed all our bee hives True Ling Heather Honey when they are about to enjoy spring and life outside the beehive after a long Norwegian winter.
The older generations in Norway prefer True Ling Heather Honey to other types of honey, because they believe it is the best honey to promote good health.

This honey is just wonderful!
Ive tried many different types of honey from all over the world. This is so far one of the best. Glad eBay recommended it to me and I decided to try it. After ordering it I received a friendly message from the seller telling me that my honey would be shipped soon. I didnt even know it was gonna be coming directly from Norway:). It only took a short period of time to receive it in the US. From now on Ling Heather honey is gonna be in the list of my favorite foods!!
very good honey and quick delivery.
