About Honey Honey is an aromatic viscose liquid, coming from the nectar of plants collected by honey bees (genus Apis) converted into a thicker liquid, a primary food source for winter. They store it in wax honeycomb cells inside their beehives and evaporate it down to 14-18° Celcius.

Honey contains 75-78% saacharides (primarily fructose, glucose and sucrose). Its low moisture levels prevents the development of micro-organisms.

According to the floral origin of honey, analogous crystallization is present, leaving unaffected both, its ingredients and its quality. Crystallization is evident due the analogy of fructose/ glucose, which are used as a prevision pointer of the phaenomenon of crystallisation. When the pointer is about, crystallisation speeds-up.

The antiseptic and antioxidant properties of honey, rich in microminerals such as iron, phosphorous, calcium etc. were well known since antiquity. Thyme honey is enhanced by its unique amber colour, the aroma and its unique flavor.

In the case of wild thyme honey, crystallisation is natural. To decrystallise it, put the jar in hot water 45-50°C and agitate slowly until it brings back its liquidity. Alternatively you can consume it as it is, crystallised.
