Basswood honey is called Linden honey in Europe and Lime honey in England however it is not a citrus tree. It produces a light and fragrant floral honey. There are hints of lemon in its pleasantly sweet taste. Our basswood is very light in color and pairs well with teas, green apples, yogurt, biscuits and ice cream.
Basswood honey is traditionally used in Europe for sore throats and coughs. We think this is due to its antimicrobial properties and its mild astringent properties to loosen phlegm. Its a great source of over 40 macronutrients, vitamins and antioxidants. It's used for digestive issues because it is rich in Maltose and reduces the hypersecretion of hydrochloric acid in the stomach.
Raw honey is important to preserve the nutrients and enzymes in the honey and its important to leave all the good stuff in the honey to obtain the benefits of this amazing honey.
Heavily processing the honey destroys the enzymes and great benefits of the honey. It's important to cold pack the honey so the heat does not destroy its great benefits. It also needs to be lightly screened to allow the great particles to be retained in the honey.
