Tropical Traditions before but mostly about their coconut oil products which are amazing! This time around, I had the opportunity to review a product that is unrelated to coconut oil but is still organic and very delicious! It's Tropical Traditions Organic Canadian Raw Honey and it is incredibly good!
Tropical Traditions Organic Raw Honey comes from the frontier areas of Canada, and is only harvested during a 6-week period in the summer. Tropical Traditions is the exclusive source of this premium organic honey in the U.S. Most commercial honeys available on the market today come from bee farms, where the bees are controlled within a certain area and get their pollen from usually only one kind of flower. Many of the plants that produce these flowers (clover, orange blossom, etc.) are grown with pesticides and fertilizers as well. In addition, almost all honeys on the market are pasteurized in high heat and filtered, removing many of the beneficial nutrients and enzymes.
Tropical Traditions Organic Raw Honey has not been subjected to the heat of processing, only warmed enough to flow (same temperatures the honey would see inside the hive). We select only premium honey that is pure, smooth and creamy, with the consistency of soft margarine at harvest. It contains live yeast and enzymes, because it has not been processed. It also contains pollen because it has not been filtered—merely screened.
Fine textured crystals are characteristic of totally pure, unheated, unprocessed, raw honey. Properly crystallized honey has a fine, smooth texture. Crystallized honey preserves natural goodness and doesn’t drip. The more rapidly honey crystallizes the finer the texture will be. It will also turn harder over time as it crystallizes. Truly raw honeys do not deteriorate with age, but like fine wines, continue to age and develop into more complex tastes.
This honey was so good! We enjoyed putting it in our evening tea as the nights are getting colder and we enjoy a little sweetened tea now and again. My husband was happy to just take a spoon and dig in! I have to admit that it was better than any honey I had ever eaten. The texture is creamy and the flavor is rich and sweet. I would love to try a peanut butter and honey sandwich with this stuff and, in fact, I may have to do that for lunch very soon!
Tropical Traditions is giving one of my readers their very own jar of Tropical Traditions Organic Canadian Raw Honey.
