Details

Forever Bee Buckwheat Honey is our exciting new naturally flavoured honey, launched in October 2020!
This delicious raw honey comes to you from beautiful fields of Manitoba, where it gets its unique and delicious flavour from the small, fragrant buckwheat flowers the bees pollinate.
It’s a darker honey, indicating it’s high in antioxidants – so very good for you! Buckwheat Honey is such a nutritious ingredient to include in your diet and is a very tasty addition to meals and baking. It is also often used in the treatment of various illnesses and injuries because it has many positive benefits for your health. This delicious treat is packed with healing goodness - according to research it can help with chest congestion and coughs, as well as lower cholesterol!
The unique, complex taste makes it great for including in your recipes and it can be used to substitute maple syrup for something a bit different.

Features

We are a small, family-owned and operated apiary – we truly care about our environment, bees and you, our customer! We aim to supply delicious, nourishing products that will promote joy, vitality and wellness in our customers, while taking great care of our incredible bees and the natural environment we all call home.
Our Buckwheat Honey is 100% raw and never heat-treated. It is dark, complex and easy to spread.
Raw honey has no expiration date and will stay fresh for as long as it is used correctly – so please don’t dip wet or dirty cutlery into your honey, as this may cause it to spoil.

Uses

Culinary
The complex, unique flavour of Buckwheat Honey works well as a maple syrup substitute on pancakes or waffles.
It also makes a tasty, healthy sweetener in sweet or savoury cooking and baking. If you are replacing sugar with honey in a recipe, use ¾ of a cup of honey for every cup of sugar. This way you do not need to worry about adding or subtracting liquid ingredients!

Other Uses
Buckwheat honey can be used to treat sore throats, coughs and colds. Its dark colour shows high concentrations of antioxidants which strengthen the immune system, so it is a wonderful booster whenever you feel under the weather.
Using raw honey can support the benefits you experience from probiotics. It is an important prebiotic, meaning it feeds all the healthy bacteria living in our guts.
