Our organic rapeseed honey is not easy to produce because of the period (end of March, beginning of April) and because of the extra stimulation it gives to bees, making them swarm.
Rapeseed honey: where does it come from? It comes from the nectar of “Brassica Napus” flowers (80%) and from other vegetables (20%) such as hawthorn and willow. Rapeseed is a yearly plant which grows mainly in spring with a bright yellow inflorescence.
Rapeseed honey; how is it made? The first phase is the honey extraction from the closed honeycombs (they do not contain clutches) with less than18% humidity. The outside wax layer is then removed, the comb is centrifuged and the obtained honey will then put in jar ready to be sold. Each jar is labelled which info such as the production lot. No GMOs and ionising treatments are used.
It compacts rapidly without crystallizing. It has a creamy consistency.
Very characteristic colour with white nuances. In the liquid form is almost transparent while if crystallizes it becomes intense white.
Mild intensity with notes of stewed cabbage and cheese crust.
Delicate flavour with notes of stewed cabbage.
