Canadian Raw Organic Honey Giveaway
I love honey! I think most people do, but the thing I don't like is the sticky, drippy mess. Did you ever hear of a honey that doesn't drip AND is full of flavor? Add to that a honey that is USDA Certified Organic. I didn't know there was such a thing. How do you control bee activity?
First of all, organic honey is only found a few places in the world now because bees will travel up to 4 miles from their hives, and if fertilized plants are nearby, they will find the flowers, going about their pollinating business. In the wild frontiers of Canada, away from any farms that use fertilizer, Tropical Traditions harvests their exclusive brand called Honey Traditions. It is truly a raw honey, and is only harvested for a six-week period in summer after the bees have pollinated the wild vegetation that surrounds the area.
Be prepared for a new taste sensation because this honey is unprocessed, and wild. The only heat that comes near it is equal to the temperatures inside the hive. Because of that, there are pollens and fine crystals present, and the texture is similar to a soft margarine; therefore no drips!
I like to use it on warm English muffins in the morning. I also add some to my tea; it's so comforting on a cold winter day. This weekend I made a celery seed salad dressing with honey (I'll post that recipe soon.) So use it as you normally would, but be ready for a burst of flavor, while you have the well-being of knowing that you are doing something good for your family and yourself.
