About French Lavender Honey

Honey can take on specific flavors if the bees are guided to harvest nectar from all the same kind of plant (called mono-florals). Lavender Honey is honey made from the collection of nectar from lavender fields in bloom. It has a fresh and light mild floral flavor, fruity, and without bitterness. The color is typically a lighter golden amber, and the consistency is naturally creamier than some other honeys that are commonly more liquid.

This Lavender Honey is made in France by Apidis, a family-owned business founded over 120 years ago in 1890 by Gabriel Perronneau. They harvest their honeys using traditional methods, and package the honey raw. Raw honey has not been heated over 95°C, keeping the healthy enzymes in the honey alive and at a temperature comparable to a healthy beehive.

Currently Apidis has over 4000 hives and is based in Villy-en-Auxois, France. However, they practice pastoral apiculture, a process that involves trucking bee colonies around France, chasing after the best fields of mono-floral flowers in bloom and allowing the bees to harvest nectar. This helps the overall pollination and germination of plants in France, and makes for happy bees.

Lavender honey is especially delicious drizzled over fruits like figs and raspberries, and as an ingredient in lemon pound cake, pumpkin bread, candied yams, and gingersnaps. The lavender and honey flavors compliment many rich foods.

If preserved well, in a sealed container, honey can last for years. Eventually the honey will crystalize and harden. Even at this point the honey is still useable. Simply heat the honey jar gradually in a hot water bath until the honey regains its original color and liquid texture.

This was my first purchase of French Lavender Honey by Gabriel Peronmeny. It is so delicious it almost defies description. The frangrance, the texture and sweetness is just sinful. Truly delightful and worth every penny!
