How to test for pure honey
You love it when you apply honey on your bread, add a little to your tea, use it to flavor up your salad or just lick it up. Honey has become a constant feature in your life. You can attest to its numerous health benefits. However, can you tell the difference between Raw pure honey and pasteurized honey? Curious to find out how you can tell the difference? Well, Otho Honey has got you covered. Here is how you can test for pure honey:
1. Thumb Test
Put a small drop of the honey you have on your thumb. If it doesn’t spill and stays intact, it is pure.
2. Water Test
Fill a glass with water and then add honey. If the honey is pure, it will settle right at the bottom of your glass.
3. The Flame Test
Organic honey is flammable. Dip a dry matchstick in your honey. Strike it on a matchbox. Pure honey will light with ease.
Tried Emmy’s Organics lemon coconut cookie bites 🍋 & I loveee them! Only thing is I don’t love the price💸 so I attempted to come up with a copycat version at home. They are grain free, gluten free, refined sugar free, also raw & plant based.
Recipe posted below!
1/2 cup unsweetened coconut flakes
1 Tbsp coconut butter (melted slightly)
2 Tbsp avocado oil
1/8 cup almond flour
1 tsp lemon extract
1/4 tsp vanilla extract
1 Tbsp Fresh squeezed lemon juice
1 Tbsp raw local honey
Put shredded coconut flakes in food processor and chop until small little bits form. Combine rest of ingredients in food processor, until smooth. Form little cookie bites. Store in refrigerator in airtight container.
Cooking with honey 🍯 We used it as a glaze on chicken and it was so delicious. We also did honey roasted carrots! 🥕 Link in bio if you’d like to check out some of our recipes and provisions! 🍴 .
An ode to our classic bonbons, which we make with local ingredients & you’ve made our bestsellers. Let’s hear it for Vermont maple & raw honey, heavy cream, buttermilk & butter, bee pollen & mint. With a California fig in the mix, reminding of us of where we journeyed from 20 years ago this fall. Thank you for tasting & gifting this leg of our journey, 5 years old & counting, & a culmination of our years in the Northeast. You all are the best.
RAW HONEY is the pure honey extracted from the honey comb of the bee hive, poured into a cloth or a filter to seperate the honey from beeswax, impurities and dead bees. Then strained, bottled and enjoyed. It has loads of antioxidants and nutrients
REGULAR OR CONVENTIONAL HONEY goes through different steps such as pasteurization, and filteration. Some also go through ultra-filteration, which can remove beneficial nutrients and antioxidants. Sometimes, sweetners or sugars added to the honey
Today’s topic is sugar!! Yeap, we all know that it causes weight gain and we shouldn’t have too much of it! .
One of reasons for this lies in our guts. Sugar, amongst its sins, is also responsible for destroying the friendly bacteria in our intestines and leaving room for the disease causing bacteria to grow and inflammation to occur.
This doesn’t mean I’m going to tell you that eating sugar is ‘bad’ and we should never eat it again because, let’s face it, how many times have we all tried that! For me personally this lead to years of yo-yo dieting with no success and I know I’m not alone!.
What I recommend to my clients trying to develop a healthier lifestyle is a more balanced approach. Maybe try swapping some of the sugar you consume with natural sweeteners such as raw honey, agave or fruits and sweet vegetables. Or when those cravings hit, maybe have a little good quality dark chocolate instead. And for those days when only sugar will do, eat the cake and enjoy it!! I consider myself pretty healthy and yes, I do still enjoy some sugar as a treat.
In the words of my Grandma: A little bit of what you fancy does you good #healthybalancedme

There would be a slight change in our prices.
Raining season is here and it has really affected the market price.
