Lime blossom honey has a distinctive aroma with a strong sweet-wooden taste and mouth-watering flavour of citrus fruits, culminating in tantalising notes of fresh mint.
It has a buttery consistency when crystallized, making it easy to spread on toast or layer in cakes, while it also makes a delicious marinade for meats when combined with mustard. Mix into natural yoghurt to allow its range of flavours to flourish, or drizzle over a fruit salad for a delightful citrussy twist.
Lime blossom honey is considered one of the healthiest honey varieties. It is rich in vitamins, especially B1, as well as a range of amino acids and pollen. Its potent antiseptic properties make it a popular choice to alleviate the symptoms of colds.
Received 3* at the 2019 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. Complex and exquisite, not too sweet. Like eating a flowery meadow. The judges felt that this was a really great honey."

Delicious soft pastry flavoured with honey, filled with a rich, vanilla custard butter cream that is topped with moreish chocolate and sprinkled with crunchy walnuts.
The ripe and juicy berries with their natural sweetness are balanced beautifully by the acidity of the fragrant balsamic vinegar and the tartness of the yoghurt, creating a light dessert and a delightful treat that is refreshing and indulgent in equal measure.
