Acacia Honey - perfect honey for breakfast.
Raw Acacia honey has a mild, sweet, floral flavour and is, therefore, one of the most popular honey varieties. It is a good choice for mixing with beverages because it sweetens without changing the taste of the drink. Acacia Honey is also an excellent choice for cooking because of its mild flavour. It has hints of vanilla flavour and no aftertaste.
Acacia honey is one of the most popular single origins types of honey out there. Due to the fact that it is mostly made of fructose it has a very light and pleasant flavour as well as it retains its runny form for very long time.
It is very popular with kids, which as we all know can bee fussy eaters, but not in this case.
Due to it's low glycemic index Acacia Honey does not cause a "sugar rush" like some supermarket honeys do as they are diluted with sugar syrups.
What is acacia honey?
Acacia honey is derived from the nectar of the Robinia pseudoacacia flower, commonly known as the black locust or false acacia tree. Compared with traditional honey, it's often much lighter in colour, appearing almost transparent.
What to use it for?
It is a good question. Acacia honey due to it's gentle nature and mild flavour is a perfect replacement for sugar in any flavour sensitive dishes. Most popular use for it is in beverages as it dissolves very easily and doesn't overpower other flavour notes.
Our favourite use for it is in salads, especially with blue cheese.
