Honeycomb Square 11oz
A single cell of honeycomb is filled with the concentrated nectar of thousands of flowers, the healthiest and most raw form of honey available. A delicacy of nature straight from the source, our Raw Honeycomb is hand-cut from the frame and boxed, with no additional treatment or processing. Honeycomb paired with cheeses, fruit, and edible flowers is a gorgeous and delicious spread for guests. Honeycomb is 100% edible.
Honeycomb is sections of the hexagonal-shaped beeswax cells of the honeycomb that contain raw honey that have been cut from the wooden frames of a beehive.
It is the rawest honey available and contains all of the pollen, enzymes, propolis, vitamins, amino acids, antioxidants, minerals, and aromatics that the honey had in the hive.
Honeycomb is more expensive than either raw or liquid bottled honey. Bottled honey is extracted from the beeswax comb and the comb is able to be used again. Since the comb is completely removed to produce comb honey, the bees and beekeeper must work harder to produce it.
Honey that has been heated and filtered is called commercial, liquid or regular honey.
“But if raw honey is so good for you, and heating it kills all the good stuff, why heat it?”
The reason is that the majority of Americans prefer the convenience of being able to spoon, pour or squeeze honey from a bottle onto their cereal or into their tea.
In addition, commercial honey is clearer, easier to measure or spread than raw honey and many people think that honey that has crystallized is spoiled so they discard it. Honey that has been heated and filtered will not crystallize as fast as raw honey.
Our raw honey is unheated, unpasteurized, unfiltered, unprocessed, non-blended and in the same condition as it was in the hive.
