    What is Raw honey in 2019

    Twin strainer set stops big bits of wax and all bee parts but allows small wax (gives good mouth feel) and pollen through (gives great complex flavour), not heated and no pressure. Takes time.

    What is Raw honey in 2019

    My definition at brightwaterbees.co.nz sums it up - no heating no filtering only strained no creaming so we do it shortly after harvesting and pot it up within hours or a day probably not possible with commercials but ok with hobby size operation and just dropped for 45 to 15 hives but we live on our pensions

    Air bubbles in thixotropic Manuka

    The word thixotrophic explains this phenomenon, and you can make it liquid by stirring it, but that will introduce more bubbles !

    Kanuka honey !!
