Honey – a fascinating natural product

Creamy-firm and ivory-coloured from rapeseed or blueberry, thick and amber-coloured from lavender or liquid and golden-yellow from robinia: honey is one of the most fascinating natural products.

However, as varied as the appearance and consistency are, so is the taste. A fresh roll for breakfast with butter and honey makes any dull morning seem bright.
In addition to its purpose as a bread topping, it has always served primarily as a natural sweetener and preservative. For example, this natural product belongs in gingerbread or serves as a substitute for sugar in muesli or yogurt. Since this “liquid gold” is taste-intensive, it should be well selected depending on the intended use.

Also revived was fermentation into mead, an alcoholic drink made from honey, water and spices. But the most amazing thing about this natural product is the more than 180 ingredients that make it a remedy as well.

Producers of honey are bees, which mix plant nectar with endogenous substances and deposit it in honeycombs.

Thanks to many bee lovers, also called beekeepers, we have been enjoying this delicacy since the Bronze Age.

Buy directly from the beekeeper. In many places you will find stalls at local markets or follow the sign “Beekeeping”.
