Clover, raspberry, cherry and alfalfa blossoms from the upper Midwest are the source for this lovely raw honey. It’s unfiltered, unblended and unprocessed so you get all the nutrients and enzymes truly raw honey has to offer. It has a mild, fresh flavor and comes in charming glass jars that look like little honey pots. You’ll want to set them out for tea with friends or even with a cheese plate for happy hour.
If you’ve read about honey in our SuperFoodsRx books, you know it’s much more than a liquid sweetener. Raw, unfiltered honey (the only kind you’ll find on our site) contains at least 181 known healthy substances and its antioxidant activity comes from the phenolics, peptides, organic acids and enzymes. Raw honey also contains salicylic acid, minerals, alpha-tocopherol and oligosaccharides, which can help increase the number of beneficial bacteria in your colon. Some studies show that making honey part of your regular diet can help maintain cholesterol and blood sugar levels and aid in muscle recuperation after exercise.
Dr. Pratt, one of our founders, mixes this honey with his non-fat yogurt. We also like to drizzle it on toast, with a sprinkling of cinnamon. It’s great with some of the whole grain pancakes we sell. Raw, unfiltered honey is always the best sweetener for your tea.
