Product information "Honey from the Black Forest bee keeper – silver fir honey in a 2,5kg little golden bucket"

  • Aroma: Not all honey is the same. Every individual honey has its own distinctive character. The Black Forest and its bee keepers are famous for their honeydew and silver fir honey. A pure silver fir honey can only be produced from forests with a lot of silver fir trees. This honey can only be harvested every seven years on average as the dense appearance of honeydew on silver fir is weather-dependent. Silver fir honey is always dark and almost black with a green hue. It is particularly rich in minerals and the malty, spicy aroma makes it a rare and exquisite delicacy.
  • Honey in food:Honey is a natural sweetener and one of the oldest as well and is ascribed many healthy qualities. The positive effect of warm milk and honey on sore throats or in the case of catarrh is well known as is the soothing effect of honey in the evening. Forest honey, fir honey and silver fir honey are particularly soothing. It is less well known that a teaspoon of honey each day, taken over an extended period, can have a beneficial effect on the general well-being of older people.
  • Manufacturing process:The extraction of the honey is the highlight of every bee keeper's calendar. He/she removes the full honeycombs from the beehive and the harvest can begin. Complete hygiene is absolutely crucial here. Honey is a foodstuff and there is no room for compromises. For that reason, the extractor and the filling vessel are made of stainless steel. Bees store the honey in the honeycombs and cover it with a thin layer of wax. This has to removed as the first step before the honey can be extracted. The honey flows out of the honeycomb due to the centrifugal force in the extractor. The freshly extracted honey can now be put in jars.
  • Quality criteria:Our honey conforms to the quality guidelines of the German Bee Keepers Association (Deutscher Imkerbund e.V.), which are stricter than the requirements of the German food regulations. The criteria are: A) Exclusively German honey detectable by an analysis of pollen. B) The water content must be less than 18% measured by a calibrated refractometer. The lower the content, the fuller the aroma. C) The honey must be 'natural'. That entails invertase activity of at least 64 units (U/kg) Siegenthaler. If that measured value is exceeded then it's guaranteed that the honey has not been heat treated. In addition, a maximum hydroxymethylfurfural (HMF) content of 15mg/kg. HMF is a sugar decomposition product of sugar caused by overheating and improper storage. Carefully produced and correctly stored honey has a low measurement. It must also contain all the components of honey. That means nothing must be added or taken away. This ensures the valuable pollen is in every honey.
  • Storage and Consumption:It is best to store your honey in a dry, dark and cool place (not in the fridge). If the honey crystallises or becomes hard, it can be softened again by warming gently in a bain-marie. Ensure the honey is not heated above 40° Celsius. Some of the anti-bacterial properties are destroyed by high temperatures. The official recommendation is to avoid giving honey to babies up to the age of 12 months. This is due to their immune systems not being fully developed.
  • Recipe:Silver fir honey goes very well with milk. A recommendation from Black Forest Maria: Honey spiced milk. Ingredients: 500ml milk, 1 large star anise, 1 cinnamon stick, 4 tbsp silver fir honey/ Preparation: Bring the milk to the boil with the star anise and cinnamon and allow to cool. Mix in the honey, chill and enjoy.
  • Did you know that...A bee brings back 50mg of nectar in each flight. That produces 10mg of honey – It takes 50,000 flights to produce 500g of honey. Assuming the meadow is 1km away, that means the bees cover 100,000km for a jar of honey – A 100g of wax requires 125,000 flakes of wax, which the bees secrete from glands – 1,200g of wax is needed to build the honeycomb in a hive. For that the bees need about 7.5kg of honey and that takes 1.5 million flights – The worker bee lives for about 30 days and the winter bee for around 7 months – A hive of some 60,000 bees has just one queen – The queen lays 1,500 to 2,000 eggs a day: her own bodyweight – A healthy hive breeds 200,000 bees over a full season.
