Description

Heather Comb Honey

Heather Comb Honey is cut straight from the honey combs produced by the bees in the autumn months following the bees annual migration to the Heather moors.

Raw Heather Comb Honey

When people refer to raw honey this means honey that is left as the bees intended, unheated and not pasteurised. With heather comb honey, this is simply cut from the comb and is just as the bees left it so is in effect the most raw honey available.

Storing and Using Heather Comb Honey

Comb honey is simply cut from the comb, and if it stays dry should last indefinately. Comb honey has after all been found in pharaohs tombs 2000 years old and reportedly still edible. Take this however with a pinch of salt, as with most things significant age doesn’t result in an increase in quality and with honey it is always best eaten as fresh as possible as honey doesn’t tend to get better with age, just the risks of storage issues can increase, for instance with raw honey if it gets moisture into it it can be more liable for a spontaneous fermentation to occur due to the natural yeasts and enzymes present. The same enzymes that carry all the benefits of honey!

If you want to further explore the benefits of using and eating honey please see the benefits of eating honey.

Therefore we recommend to keep the honey cool, and in a dry place. Even at room temperature honey can ferment, so the best thing to do is use the honey, rather than sitting on it for a long period of time! After all, when the honey is finished by the bees it is ready to eat, it doesn’t get better with age like a fine wine!

5 reviews for Heather Comb Honey | 300g Box (min weight)

  1. Tracey McDowell (verified owner)

    This has got to be the best comb honey I’ve ever had. Highly recommend.

  2. Léon Perdoni (verified owner)

    There is for me no greater treat than a small piece of honey in it’s comb.It is a work of art in itself. The arrangement of the hexagonal cells and the jewelled beauty within each one are miracles of nature which give pleasure on so many levels…and the unique combination of Heather honey with its wax is a sensation to be enjoyed as a treat in itself. It’s astonishing to be able to receive the work of those tiny creatures and appreciate their labour and enjoy the fruits of it… These combs are treasures… especially the Heather honey combs… They are a luxury but worth every penny.

    This is great honey and I have had several lots of heather honey from Northumberland Honey Co. over the last three years. I can recommend it to anyone.
