Honey History

Sunday, February 04th, 2007 1:35pm

Bees found in prehistoric amber show that honeybees have changed very little in a million 1/2 years. Although they have developed a stinger to defend themselves, they looked exactly then as they do now.buy Gourmet Honey Now

Honey is one of the oldest known foods to man. As a natural food honey is the only food that is made by an insect that is consumed my man. With all of man’s scientific engineering and advanced technology he has failed to be able to duplicate the honey that is made by a honeybee. As early as 7000 B.C. honeybees were included in the drawings of the Egyptian pharaoh tombs, containers of honey and bread were buried there. Complete animal and human mummies have been found in vessels completely filled with honey.

Honeybees arrived in America with the pilgrims in 1620. The Indians called the honeybees the “white man’s flies”. His cultivation of the lands increased, pollination of crops were needed to produce products in abundance. The honeybee today is responsible for billions of dollars of crops that are taken for granted from apple’s to cabbage. Without the honeybee to pollinate our crops, there would be a severe famine within 12 months.

Recently, the introduction of the Africanized honeybee has brought a new fear of the BEES in general. The Africanized honeybee looks no different than the Italian honeybee that has been used in America for hundreds of years. The Africanized bee is a hybrid between the bee from Africa and the Italian honeybee. Research on this hybrid was being done in South America, and an inspector accidentally took out a queen excluder that allowed a fertile hybrid to escape into the wild. The Africanized honeybee has migrated from South America to as far north as Kansas. All bees can only sting one time. In the process of stinging a pheromone is released, alerting the rest of the beehive of danger. The colony of bees stings in masses. Africanized bees are very aggressive. The Italian being is fairly docile. You cannot tell the difference between them with the naked eye. South Americans still harvest honey from Africanized bees.

Honey is the natural and unrefined, perfect sweet, rich in enzymes, minerals, vitamins and proteins. Honey has been used in natural remedies since the beginning of time. Most of the honey on the store shelf has been pasteurized to kill the essential enzymes that aid in digestion. Commercially sold honey has usually been blended with all many different varieties of honey that has been collected by the beekeeper.

Honey collected from one source of flower nectar, is called monofloral honey. Gourmet Honeys usually come from one flower source. These special honeys are sought after by people from all over the world because of the special care, given the honey by the beekeeper. The honey is collected before it is mixed with other flower source honeys and then bottled as pure as possible.

Gourmet honeys are usually not gathered in amounts large enough that they can be made commercially available and shipped to supermarket chains. Look for a beekeeper that advertises a gourmet honey gathered from his area. Compare this gourmet honey with the other gourmet honeys that claim to be the same from that general area. You will soon recognize the beekeepers that offer quality premium gourmet honeys.

Honey is still the only natural sweetener that is the safest to consume with the highest nutritional value.

Honey is the only food that includes all the basic nutrients to sustain life, including water.

Tupelo Honey a Great Gourmet Taste

Wednesday, January 31st, 2007 11:22am

Tupelo honey is very sweet, in high demand and one of the more expensive honeys to produce. So why ask for tupelo honey? Honey is honey right? Well soup is soup is soup by the same measure.buy Gourmet Honey Now NOT! There is every imaginable soup from broths to vegetables and even fruit soups. They taste as different as light shows on the spectrum, not even close. The one characteristic that most honeys have is that they are all sweet to some degree.

Tupelo has different levels of glucose 29.98% and fructose 44.03% than other honeys. These levels of sweetener cause the tupelo honey to crystallize after a much longer period of time IF ever.

The big reason to choose tupelo honey over any other table honey is always the taste! Many written words have been used to describe the taste of tupelo honey. The most often used description is “the taste of what you would expect flowers to smell like”. Enchanting but still not quite what tupelo honey tastes like. There is initial taste and a finish taste as the honey is enjoyed. Guess I still haven’t done this marvelous gourmet honey justice. Here is the idea of the day, you taste it and tell me how to describe it. Everyone that tries it have great reviews but have a hard time saying anything else beyond, “You gotta try it!”

Honey for Tea, Coffee and Me

Tuesday, January 30th, 2007 4:36pm

Honey was the sweetener of choice prior to refined sugar. Honey is natural and unrefined. In a raw, unpasteurized state, honey has beneficial enzymes, proteins and vitamins while still being lower in calories than refined sugar.buy Gourmet Honey Now

A choice gourmet honey has flavor in addition to being sweet. Squeeze bottles dispense the liquid sweetener for coffee and tea drinkers. Honey is slightly more inconvenient as it is a liquid, sticky and harder to clean up if there is a spill. The advantages are that it is lower in calories, all natural, and much healthier. Now honey comes as a dry powder with the same wonderful honey taste and the sweetener of choice for coffee and tee drinkers.

Another honey sweetener is creamed honey. Creamed honey is a process that causes the honey to crystallize into a creamed solid. In this state the honey is spooned into the tea or coffee with ease. Creamed honey is also a delicacy on toast, biscuits, muffins or bagels. This spread replaces butter and is all natural.

Powdered Honey

Thursday, January 18th, 2007 5:23pm

Powdered honey is a gourmet honey product that has from 19% to 70% Pure honey as a base. The balance of the product is a stabilizer that is made of wheat, starches or sugars such as maltodextrin and fructose (that help the powdered honey to free flow). buy Gourmet Honey NowThe process of dehydration of the honey is “roller dried” , “spray dried” or “vacuum dried”. These processes eliminate the water that is in the honey and changes the properties of the honey from a liquid to that of a powder of the consistency of brown sugar. Powdered honey is also known as dehydrated or dried honey.

Powdered honey has the full honey flavor without the liquid sticky mess. Powdered honey is more stable than liquid honey. You may store powdered honey without crystallization issues. One of the advantages of powdered honey is the ability to mix with hot or cold liquids as a sweetener and is equally easy to blend in dry mixes and recipes. The best powdered honey, having 70% pure honey has the sweetness of cane sugar but the taste of honey.

This convenient taste of gourmet honey can now be used anywhere sugar would be used.

Gourmet honey in the form of original liquid honey, creamed honey or powdered honey have a place in all dining spaces, from formal to leisure picnics.

Whipped Honey, Creamed Honey, No Mess, Same Great Taste

Wednesday, January 10th, 2007 4:01pm

Whipped Honey is all natural honey that has crystallized. This crystallized honey is a normal state that all honey eventually displays.buy Gourmet Honey Now Honey processors insert stainless steel whisks or beaters to stir the crystallized honey until the crystals are broken into very fine particles. Honey crystals can be as large as a dollar bill or as small as a pin point. The smallest crystal size is the most desirable.

Electric motors stirs the crystallized honey. In small applications a drill motor is used with a stainless steel paddle. The whipped honey is a light cream color and the consistency of peanut butter. This whipped, Creamed honey should be a non-liquid. When preparing to make whipped honey, the producers sometimes put “seed crystals” in the liquid honey to speed up the crystallization process.

Honey that crystallizes without the aid of electrical stirrers or seed honey is usually called granulated honey and has larger honey crystals. Whipped honey does not taste any different than the liquid honey but is easier to consume in the more solid state.

In many European countries and New Zealand, whipped honey is preferred to liquid honey and is more expensive. Whipped honey usually has air whipped into the honey. The honey is sold by net weight so the air is not a detriment to this gourmet delight.

Creamed honey, spun honey, granulated honey and whipped honey are so similar that only the professional could tell the difference in appearance. The texture can be the number one clue even to a novice if the whipped honey is from a very small crystal. The small crystal melts on your tongue almost immediately.

Should you desire to turn granulated honey into a liquid and preserve the enzymes of raw honey, place the honey in a glass jar, place the jar in warm water that does not exceed 140°. Do not overheat.

Creamed Honey Gourmet

Tuesday, November 28th, 2006 2:44pm

Creamed Honey Gourmet

Dr E.J. Dyce a beekeeping professor at Cornell University patented the process that is recognized worldwide as the only true scientific creamed honey process in 1928.buy Gourmet Honey Now

Creamed honey is made with pure honey. By law pure honey is defined as having no additives. Pure honey is less than 19% water and only has evaporated flower nectar from the bee comb.

Creamed honey is made by adding very tiny honey crystals to fresh liquid gourmet honey. The honey crystal seed usually does not exceed 10 % of the mass. Honey crystals can be large to very tiny depending on the honey that it started to grow in. The smallest honey crystals are best so that you may create a very spreadable, smooth texture.

80% of all honey sold in New Zealand is creamed honey. 49% of honey consumed in England is creamed honey. Creamed honey is seen as easier to manage and less messy than liquid honey.

Flavors, spices and fruit have been added to creamed honey as an alternative to pure creamed honey. Some essence oils have been added to honey products to give fragrance. These oils are not recommended as the taste is objectionable and the oils are not produced for human consumption.

Gourmet yellow star thistle honey, raspberry honey, fireweed honey and blackberry honey make excellent creamed honey.
