You cannot get anything more natural than raw honeycomb.
This is honey straight from the hive completely natural as the bees made it.
What is Honeycomb?
Worker honeybees craft the internal structure of their hives by using their legs and mouths to mould the soft beeswax pieces into hexagonal cells. These ‘honeycomb’ cells are used to store nectar and pollen, which the bees then convert to honey.
How do you eat a raw honeycomb? There’s no wrong way!
Layer a comb of honey on a baguette
Add flavour to toast, scones or pancakes
Cut into bite-sized pieces and include it on a platter of deli meats and cheeses. Pairs wonderfully with a Blue cheese.

September is Bee Aware Month.
Honey Bees are part of a group of pollinators without which we would have no fruit or vegetables.
Contrary to some media stories, the honey bee is not endangered in New Zealand but our native bees are.
These are solitary insects that usually live in burrows and produce no honey. They also are pollinators and suited our native plant species. Their habitat is threatened as they cannot be shifted around and managed like the honey bee.

Are you confused about Manuka Honey?

If you are looking to purchase Genuine manuka honey, the different ways of rating it can be very confusing! UMF, MGO, NPA, or pollen count. Then there is Mono-floral and multi-floral manuka!

If you are looking to purchase Genuine manuka honey, the different ways of rating it can be very confusing! UMF, MGO, NPA, or pollen count. Then there is Mono-floral and multi-floral manuka!
These all show the antibacterial level of manuka honey.
The concentration of hydrogen peroxide is what gives manuka its effectiveness along with the fact that honey is hydroscopic (absorbs moisture).

Multi-floral manuka simply means that the bees will have collected other honey at the same time as the active manuka whereas mono- floral will be pure manuka.

Obviously the higher rating the more expensive your honey will be. If you require a good honey for a sore throat etc, a 5+ or 80 MGO is all you need. At the other end of the scale if you are treating a wound I would use a 20+ and apply it topically.
