A dark, fruity tree honey with with salty notes
Overview: Our superb Avocado honey is characterised by being very dark amber, almost black, with reddish-brown tones. It has a faint floral smell, with clearly fruity tones and a sweet taste, with light salty notes. All this makes it clearly different from other types of floral honeys, such as rosemary, thyme or lavender, with clear organoleptic differences, which is why it is the preferred honey for many consumers. Avocado Honey is known for its high content of mineral salts and is especially rich in iron. For this reason avocado honey is said to have antianemia properties. In addition, it stands out for its high diuretic and depurative capacity. Slightly varying in taste, colour and texture from season to season, it is raw, natural and unpasteurised, as nature intended.

Please note: If the honey sets (crystallises) please don't panic as it has not gone off. It is a natural characteristic of Raw Honey. Simply place your jar of raw honey in a glass bowl, quarter fill a pan with boiling water then place the bowl into the pan. The steam should heat the bowl, which heats the jar with out over heating it. Keep the water boiling by turning up the heat on the hob. Your honey should be runny again in 10 minutes or so (depending on size).
