Description

A jar of honey from our Crewe apiary, Late Harvest 2021.

The combs from which this honey was extracted started to get filled by the bees in August after we harvested the summer crop. This being a semi-urban area, the local gardens and allotments have probably given them a lot to choose from but there was plenty of Himalayan Balsam flowering, as well as Hairy Willowherb, Budlija and Purple Loostrife – definitely the season for magenta flowers!

Although it has been strained to remove any stray pieces of wax, it has never been filtered so retains all of the pollen naturally present in honey. Over time it will crystalise but if you prefer a perfectly clear liquid honey, it can also be made runny again by gently warming the jar to about 55°C a water bath is best but you could also use an oven if you can set the temperature; it will probably take about an hour to fully clear.

It is sold in a traditional glass honey jar, with a metal screw lid and tamperproof label.

Honey is not recommended for children under 1 year old, as per NHS advice.
