I sell high quality raw honey, chemical free, and strained but not finely filtered. You can see and taste the difference!
You can buy it locally if you live in Boise. See below about buying honey at the Dutch Oven Cafe.
Sorry, I'm out of honey packaged to ship for the season.
Coming soon..... a self serve station.
Raw honey is the concentrated nectar of flowers that comes straight from the extractor; it is the only low heated, pure, unpasteurized, unprocessed honey. Raw honey is the healthiest choice amongst the various forms of honey as it has the most nutritional value.
Most of the honey found in the supermarket is not raw honey but "commercial" regular honey, which has been pasteurized (heated at 160 degrees or more, followed by rapid cooling) and filtered so that it looks cleaner and smoother, more appealing on the shelf, and easier to handle and package. On the downside, when honey is heated, its delicate aromas, yeast and enzymes which are responsible for activating vitamins and minerals in the body system are partially destroyed. Hence, raw honey is assumed to be more nutritious than honey that has undergone heat treatment.
Characterised by fine textured crystals, raw honey looks milkier and contains particles and flecks made of bee pollen, and honeycomb bits. Raw and unfiltered honey is relatively low in moisture content (14% to 18%) and has a high antioxidant level. It also has more flavor.
