Raw Forest Honey from the Norwegian Woods
Our Raw Forest Honey is collected by our bees far into a forest, 51 km north east of Oslo, Norway. Both our bees and we love it there. The distance to farm land is so far that the only resources available are wild plants.
95% of the nectar collected for this honey comes from wild raspberries, blueberries and lingonberries. Please see further down the page for the findings from the laboratory.
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.
Very sweet honey, with an aftertaste reminding of vanilla.
Commonly used as a spread for the sweet tooth. It goes very well with strong flavored cheese and salty biscuits.
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 icecream.
This honey is a good contrast to our Ling Heather Honey.
Creamy honey has a long shelf life. When stored dark at stable room temperature (approx. 20°C / 68°F) it will stay stable and not change consistensy.
It is a Norwegian tradition 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. After about two weeks, it becomes creamy and delicate, ready to be transferred into jars.
