Wai-Ora - Honeydew Honey


500 grams

4 left

Honeydew honey from South Island Beech trees can only be found in New Zealand and is special in that it is actually produced starting with ancient New Zealand forests. These forests stretch along the Southern Alps of the South Island. The honey comes from the black beech tree, which is endemic to the South Island of New Zealand. Forests of these trees attract aphids which feed on their bark. These aphids secrete a sugar-like substance on to the trees which sparkles in the sunlight (hence honey dew). This substance is in turn collected by bees and crafted into a unique and totally organic honey. From beginning to end the creation of honeydew honey requires the soil of ancient New Zealand forests, black beech trees, and the tireless work of two species of insects, culminating in an absolutely spectacular end product.

Unlike other honeys, this honey does not crystallize so there is no need for us to cream it. Its ability to remain liquid and runny makes this honey great for storing in the cupboard. Honeydew honey will remain a pure liquid even after years of storage. The sweet, yet subtle flavor of honeydew honey is slightly tangy with a touch of zest. Use this honey in your cooking. It is especially lovely as a meat glaze or marinade. It is also great as a substitute for maple syrup due to its consistency and smooth taste.

If you leave your rinsed honey glass jar including lid out on packing day, our driver will collect it for reuse

Wai-Ora Apiaries

Wai-Ora means liquid health, life-giving. With 3 generations of Thompsons, they are now into their 4th decade of producing minimally processed honey, based on ancient Maori principals: A belief that everything that we say, think and do should be done with future generations in mind. Wai-Ora honey is harvested chemical-free and no sugar feeding to the bees, with little interference during the creation process working with nature's genius in order to provide a totally raw organic product. Nestled in the foothills of North Canterbury Inland road, Wai-Ora is in the heart of the South Island Manuka country, where the family farm works sustainably towards a harmonious connection between farmer, bee and all forms of life. Third generation beekeeper Priscilla likes to say "no bee left behind" and in doing so demonstrates the ongoing integrity and respect for other life forms that is at the heart of the Thompson family's commitment to their craft.

Make sure to store honey in a cool place, but not in the refrigerator. It should also be kept out of direct sunlight.
