Description

The origin of our Amalsons raw Spanish Almond Honey

Almond honey is tree blossom honey made by bees foraging from the nectars of Mediterranean almond tree blossoms that bloom in early Spring. The almond trees are located in the Spanish village of Los Veléz of Almería Province. We supply this nutty-tasting honey from our passionate and sustainable Spanish beekeeper, Antonio.

The plant Almond Honey comes from

Almond Tree Blossoms Honey

These pretty flowers bloom from the almond trees. They are extraordinarily beautiful, giving a white and pink glow to the cold winter and a promise of the warm spring ahead.

These blossoms are what produces almonds. Almonds have become a popular “substitute” for dairy products.These nuts contain lots of healthy fats, fibre, protein, magnesium and vitamin E. The health benefits of almonds include lower blood sugar levels, reduced blood pressure and lower cholesterol levels. You can imagine how almonds have become increasingly popular among substitute alternatives!

Some other products you might find besides almond milk, is almond oil, almond flour and almond butter.

To provide the almond we humans love, these flowers rely heavily on pollination from bees. Thus, many beekeepers rent out their hives to almond farmers. California seems to be breaking its own almond production records each year.

Not everyone is a fan of almond honey. For this reason, some beekeepers don’t even keep the honey after they get the hives back as it’s very difficult to sell. Some report a strong and bitter taste while others might find the flavour very sweet with a hint of vanilla and nutty aftertaste (seemingly not noticing any bitterness at all). It has been reported, however, that the ‘bitter flavour’ mellow out over time.

Unpasteurised and 100% raw honey

We only supply raw honey. Which means all our honey are unpasteurised, non-blended, only coarsely filtered and 100% pure just how the bees would like it. This ensures that the natural enzymes, vitamins and minerals are retained in the honey for you to enjoy and benefit from. This makes our honey superior to most honey being sold on supermarket shelves even despite being labelled ‘organic’.

We work directly with our beekeepers

To ensure the quality and origins of our honey, we don’t work with intermediaries. Rather, we work directly with the beekeepers themselves. We only work with the best trustworthy beekeepers who value their bees, the environment and their work ethics.

Pure raw honey crystallises with the passage of time

Because our honey is 100% raw it can crystallise over time. This is normal and it does not mean that the honey has gone off. Simply place the jar of honey in a glass bowl, quarter fill a pan or a pot with boiling water then place the bowl into it. The steam should heat the bowl, which heats the jar without overheating it (you do not want the benefits of the honey to be eliminated by the heat). Keep the water boiling by turning up the heat on the stove. The honey should be in liquid form again in 15 minutes or so (depending on the size).
