Lime or linden tree honey has a complex and distinctive floral blossom aroma with a mouth-watering citrus fruit taste and tantalising notes of fresh mint.
Once crystallised, its buttery consistency makes it easy to spread on toast or layer on cakes, while lime honey combined with mustard also makes a delicious marinade for meats. Mix it into natural yoghurt to allow its range of flavours to flourish, or drizzle it over a fruit salad for a delightful citrus twist.
Lime tree honey is considered one of the healthiest honey varieties. It is naturally rich in pollen, vitamins, especially B1 and a range of amino acids. Its potent antiseptic properties make it a popular choice to alleviate the symptoms of colds.
Received 3* at the 2019 and 2* at the 2023 Great Taste Award.
Comments from the Great Taste judges:
"This characteristic lime colour honey has great clarity. The flavour is immediate with a beguiling lime edge. This zesty floral explosion is magic on the palate. It tastes like Spring sunshine and leaves a floral trail in the mouth that is delicious. Complex and exquisite, not too sweet."
