Pure Raw Honeycomb
Nature produces nothing more delectable than raw honeycomb straight from the hive. Sticky, sweet, and rich with a decent amount of chew, once you've consumed this all-natural treat, you'll never look at store-bought honeycomb the same way again.
Honeycomb is the internal structure of the honeybee hive that bees create from beeswax during the honey making process. Comprised of many hexagonal cells, honeycomb is full of rich, raw honey that has traces of flower pollen, packed full of vitamins, antioxidants, enzymes, and minerals.
Beekeepers use the honeycomb to get the purest harvested honey from the hive. Lucky for our customers, we believe in respecting the hard work of our honeybees, which means we make the most of our harvest, from raw honey to the honeycomb.
The nectar from the bees will inform the colour and flavour of the honeycomb, offering darker or lighter colours with slight nuances in every bite. Additionally, the traces of nectar and pollen in the comb can be a natural hay fever remedy.
The age of the honeycomb comes into play as well, with the beekeeper waiting patiently as the bees work hard to build it. This can result in the honeycomb being comprised of several different flower pollens from the bee's daily travels.
Experience the Benefits of Natural Honey
If you've never experienced eating raw honeycomb before, you can expect a light and chewy texture with a burst of honey as you bite into it.
Think of the most delicious, ooey-gooey candy you've ever had, and now imagine that it came guilt-free. In fact, raw honeycomb is full of good stuff, just as raw honey is.
Ever since humans discovered that pure honeycomb was edible, they've been using it to fight infections and bacteria, improve heart health and enjoy a natural sugar hit.
Using honeycomb on your cheese platters and through your deserts can be a great alternative to lower the chemicals and processed sugar in your diet, eating as people have been for thousands of years. While raw honey contains the same sweetness as sugar, it doesn't have the effect of causing sugar highs and lows or raising insulin levels.
Ways to Enjoy Fresh Raw Honeycomb
Honeycomb can add a unique, delicious, and nutritious touch to any charcuterie board or meal and can be enjoyed in many ways. Often considered nature's first lolly, even a small piece of honeycomb can provide a perfect end to a meal and health boost to the body.
