Our honey comes mainly from the wildflowers, blueberry and clover blossoms found in the North Eastern area of our province and as such tends to have a mild flavour. We do not pasteurize our honey. During the whole process of extracting and bottling, our honey is maintained at the same temperature that you find in the beehive, 93 – 95 F. We never filter or strain our honey, allowing it to gravity settle in one of two large water jacketed stainless steel tanks, pouring off the bottom. It’s as close as you can get to eating honey straight for the hive. You can taste the difference.
Available in 500 gr (1lb), 750 gr (1 1/2 lb) 1350 gr (3 lb), 15 lb, 30 lb, special orders and bulk.
About Freezing Liquid Honey
Many people do not realize that you can freeze liquid honey to prevent crystallization from occurring – especially if you buy in large containers and do not consume it all before it does begin to crystallize (a natural occurrence with honey).
Below are some tips for freezing honey:
- Repack your honey into jars or containers that are easier for you to use in the future – after all, you don’t want to keep freezing and thawing your honey because it is too large of a container. The size of the container is entirely up to you.
- We all know that honey is sticky and not all that fun to clean up when spilled. Take this into consideration when choosing your storage container. You will want to pick a container with a good seal on it to prevent spills and leaks. Glass is actually a perfect choice for this – the honey will not expand and plastic containers could become dinged or damage when you or your family is looking through your freezer.
- Once frozen, honey will keep in the freezer for ever, but after approximately one year – the chance of crystallization occurring does increase.
- When you are ready to use your honey, remove from the freezer and let it thaw completely – simply leave it sit at room temperature. It’s my experience that the container will “sweat” when thawing.
- Don’t worry, your honey won’t taste any different. Freezing honey does not change or affect the nutritional quality of the honey in any way.
