Tropical Traditions Organic Raw Honey Giveaway
CONTEST IS CLOSED.
My family has always loved honey. The kids would stand in the store and stare at the honey jars and ask, "When we have a coupon can we purchase some honey?" I sometimes gave in and bought them honey but I worried about the health benefits. Where was this honey coming from? Mostly bee farms, where the bees are controlled within a certain area and usually get their pollen from only one kind of flower. Many of the plants that produce these flowers (clover, orange blossom, etc.) are grown with pesticides and fertilizers as well.
Tropical Traditions Organic Raw Honey comes from the frontier areas of Canada, and is only harvested during a 6-week period in the summer. The flowers used by the bees have never been subjected to pesticides. Because it has not been subjected to the heat of processing, it retains it nutrients. This is a honey I can feel safe about eating.
When my son saw this honey he asked, "Is this honey okay? It looks ruined." I explained the honey was totally pure, unheated, unprocessed and raw. This gives it a slightly different texture and look than processed honey. When we used it the first time on our biscuits, my son exclaimed, "This honey is really good!" The entire family concurred.
I found a yummy recipe for Coconut Cream Almond Fruit Salad for anyone wondering how to use honey in cooking.
