A Christmas Gift of Honey
Honey is a wonderful gift at any time of year but especially at Christmas. With a long-established historical and cultural importance in society, honey was the only source of sugar until the 18th century. Not only delicious in itself, but it also has immense nutritional value as well as antibacterial properties. Plus saving our bees is good for people and the planet!
There are many varieties of honey available in the marketplace – some are clear, or very pale with mild flavours such as wild, orange blossom and of course wild heather. Your choice is limitless and can suit all budgets for a delightful Christmas gift.
A Christmas gift of honey is ideal for a foodie friend or family member. In cooking, honey is added into sweet and savoury recipes: used as a natural sweetener in baking, roasting fruits or added to many favourite savoury dishes, tagines, roasted vegetables or drizzled over salads plus added to many roasted meats.
The Scottish Bee Company is offering a delightful range of eco-friendly Christmas gifts – ranging from blossom honey, beeswax candles and much more. They produce pure natural blossom honey that is good for our bees and good for the environment. The company also donates part of the proceeds from your honey gifts to their sister charity www.repollinate.org.uk which aims to increase pollination through education programmes and wildflower projects.
