Raw Honeydew ( world wide knows as forest honey ) is a type of honey made from tree sap, a sticky liquid with a composition somewhat similar to that of nectar, which serves as a food source for small insect species such as aphids.
These insects eat the sap and remove a sticky substance,, called Resin,, on the leaves, branches or even on the trunks of trees then the bees collect this resin for honey production.
Just as flower honey can be monofloral or polyfloral, so honeydew can be made from the sap of one or more species of trees.
The most productive and popular tree species include fir, pine, oak, willow, poplar, plum, beech and peach.
In general, it tends to be darker in color, has a strong flavor profile and medium sweetness. Honeydew honey commonly has a strong and distinctive aroma that can be resinous, piney, herbal, or malty.
Typically honeydew have lower levels of glucose and fructose and higher levels of complex sugars due to the extra enzymatic actions in the sap sucking insect's gut.
As all our products, the raw honeydew is unpasteurized and unfiltered so retains all its delicious healthy nutritional properties.

I first bought this from a farmer's market in Greenwich while on vacation. I wish I would've stocked up because it's the best honey I've had. Like others have said, it's velvety smooth, sweet and flavorful. We eat it right out of the jar sometimes.
With love from the U.S.
