Most people purchase honey from a market or grocery store, during a jar; the branded honey you find in stores is a healthy substitute sweetener or spread for toast and pancakes. However this honey has been purified, 1st by the beekeeper, who filters out larger items of wax and pollen, and then by the manufacturer, who purchases honey wholesale from beekeepers and subjects the honey to more filtration, significantly thinning the honey within the process.

Many beekeepers sell honey on to customers, bottling it under their own whole or merely in plain jars. This can be considered raw honey, because the degree of filtration is minimal and therefore the honey remains thick and rich. By buying directly from a beekeeper, you are additionally supporting native agriculture in your area and assuaging the environmental impact of transporting food over long distances.

However, the rawest type of honey you’ll be able to purchase is honeycomb honey. Honey bees create their own honeycombs out of beeswax, forming hexagonal cells, filling them with honey that they create from nectar they collect from flowers and then sealing the filled cells with a lot of beeswax. Domesticated bees manufacture these honeycombs on wood frames in their hives; the frames are designed such that they will be removed. When all the cells are crammed and capped, the beekeeper will take away the frame, interrupt the beeswax caps, and extract the honey by centrifugal force, spinning the frame and honeycomb in an “extractor,” which may be a kind of spinning device. The beekeeper then replaces the frame in the beehive, with the beeswax honeycomb intact. The bees can diligent clean the cells and immediately begin adding new honey; they’re saved from the work of having to construct a brand new comb.

Some beekeepers, however, will rigorously take away the honeycomb from the picket frame, keeping it intact, cut the honeycomb into items, and sell it whole, usually charging by weight. This is often the rawest kind of honey you can purchase. There are various ways in which to eat comb honey; you’ll simply cut off a little piece and place it in your mouth, chewing it and rejecting the wax parts. Or, bring to a halt a chunk and spread it on hot toast; the wax can soften somewhat, and you can eat it together with the honey and toast. The wax can not hurt you; in fact, as a result of bee pollen is sometimes embedded within the wax, by eating the wax you may get the health edges of consuming bee pollen.

Many beekeepers will also sell “chunk honey”: wide-mouthed jars of raw honey with a piece of comb honey inside. With chunk honey, you can spoon out pure honey to sweeten your tea and also break off small pieces of the comb to unfold on your toast. Chunk honey is typically sold in fairly large jars, to accommodate the piece of comb.

As a result of of its raw state, likewise as the natural health properties of both honey and therefore the bee pollen that’s embedded in varying quantities within the wax comb, many folks extol the health edges of comb honey. A ancient New England remedy advises that one chew honeycomb throughout allergy season to alleviate sneezing, runny nose, and watery eyes; start chewing every week or two before allergy season begins. Comb honey has conjointly been suggested to treat scarring and skin infections (rubbing the honey on affected areas), and as an all-purpose face moisturizer, mask, and body scrub. Honeycomb honey contains bee pollen, fructose, glucose, proteins, enzymes, and other nutrients; honey’s antibiotic properties have often been cited.

If you regularly eat honey however have never sampled honeycomb, it’s well worth trying.
