Rare Hawaiian Organic Keawe Honey - White Lilikoi Infusion 8oz
Certified organic, raw, naturally crystallizing. Simply the Best White Honey on the planet!! Gathered from an isolated Kiawe forest on the island of Hawaii, the deep tap roots of the Kiawe trees have reached an underground aquifer of fresh water that flows down from the volcanoes. This forest is in a desert and no other vegetation has tapped the aquifer, allowing the bees to collect Kiawe nectar of exceptional purity and quality.
Pure Kiawe Honey rapidly and naturally crystallizes into an exceptionally creamy texture, creating a pearly white Honey with a unique, delicate tropical flavor unlike anything you have ever tasted. Obtaining Kiawe Honey in its natural state - unheated and unfiltered - is a painstaking art that requires precise timing; too soon and the honey is not sufficiently ripe, too late and it crystallizes in the comb. Once crystallized it is impossible to extract Kiawe Honey from the comb without using heat, which can destroy beneficial enzymes while radically altering the Honey's color, taste and texture. The Kiawe forest that produces this Honey is quite small, making this one of the rarest gourmet Honey varieties on the planet.
Passion Fruit, known as Lilikoi in Hawaii, is the quintessential flavor of the tropics; tart, aromatic...tropicallly delicious! By infusing the Keawe honey with Lilikoi, a tropical gourmet masterpiece has been created. The delicate flavor of naturally crystallizing creamy white Kiawe honey allows the lilikoi flavor to take center stage.
Enjoy this honey as an appetizer when spread on fine cheeses and cured meats atop gourmet crackers or a fresh baguette.
This honey will continue to soften on the shelf at room temperature. If you would like firmer honey, place it in the refrigerator. You may also soften the honey by stirring.
