Award Winner Raw Hungarian Acacia Honey
Acacia honey is a mild honey with a harmonic taste and the rich floral aroma of acacia blossoms, with just a hint of vanilla. Its hue ranges from nearly colourless to very light amber. Acacia honey is slow to crystallise and remains liquid for a long time.
Its runny consistency and sweet taste makes it a popular and healthy alternative to sugar in drinks and desserts, as well as the honey of choice when baking, as it easy to mix into batters. Alternatively, just drizzle it over fresh toast or crusty bread for a delicious morning pick-me-up.
Due to Acacia honey's antibacterial properties, a spoonful of it is recommended to ease coughing and sore throat. Meanwhile its ratio of fructose to sucrose means it is ideal for diabetics.
Acacia honey in a traditional craft honeypot is the perfect gift for your foodie friends. Or why not taste it with a piece of moreish honeycomb? While if you are a cheese lover, why not try it with fragrant slices of black summer truffles, the perfect pairing for blue cheese and goat cheese.

Comments from the Great Taste Judges:
The palest of honeys, quite beautiful in its clarity, with a tantalising aroma of acacia. A really natural, quite simple but fragrant and delicious taste - we applaud the natural production process.
A very light flavour with a gentle hint of citric lime fruit and a full sweetness. A mouth-watering quality to this honey with a freshness and vibrancy.
