Tropical Traditions Certified Organic Canadian Raw Honey

I have only recently learned about raw honey.  All of my life, I have been using the clear kind that comes in the little bear shaped container, and was perfectly happy to do so.  As you can see in the photos above and below, raw honey is different.

This is Tropical Traditions Certified Organic Canadian Raw Honey.

You can see that it doesn't drip or run even though the spoon is turned sideways.  The honey has very fine crystals, but the texture is smooth.  It will also keep this texture.  It won't harden or crystallize. This is the sign of totally pure, unheated, unprocessed, raw honey.

What is the benefit of raw honey?  Well, unlike the honey manufactured from most bee farms, this has been harvested from unpopulated areas in Canada.  There are no pesticides, fertilizers or other chemical agents on the flowers that these bees have pollenated.  In addition to that, the bees have been to many different types of flowers, which enhances the flavor.  Finally, this honey has not been robbed of its natural nutrients and enzymes by the usual pasteurization process.

The end result is fantastic.  I have been using it in all the normal ways I use honey, as a sweetener, and even right off of the spoon.  It is also spreadable, and quite good on a peanut butter sandwich.

This product is perfectly consistent with the quality I have come to love from the Tropical Tropical Traditions Company.  To see their impressive selection of products visit them on the web at www.tropicaltraditions.com.  You may also follow with Twitter, YouTube or facebook.

In exchange for an honest, blogged review, I was given a jar of this honey.  I was not paid to write this post and my opinions are my own.
