All Natural Comb Honey
Before the invention of the honey extractor "comb honey" was the primary source of honey commercially produced. Older generations beginning in the late 17thcentury until about 1915 would have had comb honey more than any other form. The natural state of comb honey is exactly how the bees make it in the hive as well as how its utilized by bees as a food source. Honey bees build the hexagonal cells of beeswax and then they fill each "honeycomb" cell with the available floral sources of nectar. The culmination and result of this natural process is the wonderful harvest of comb honey that we can all appreciate and benefit from.
Many of our customers love to eat comb honey on a hot piece of toast or will place small pieces on top of their favorite salad. You can also try mixing a piece into your morning yogurt which is both delicious and healthy. However you decide to eat it, you can be certain that you are eating the most natural state of Honey available; Heritage Bee Farm’s 100% ALL NATURAL RAW HONEY COMB!
Benefits of Comb Honey
In comb honey all the the honey and comb remains naturally in tact right out of the hive and therefore has not been processed in any way, it has all the natural propolis, pollen, enzymes, vitamins, antioxidants and so much more that reside in the wax cell structure itself. Although our natural honey outside of the comb contains many of these same benefits, the honey comb is in its most natural state and is carefully cut from the bee hive frame and packaged "fresh" from the hive.
How to Eat Comb Honey
The well known approach to eat comb honey is to cut a piece of it off and spread it over toast (See our other suggestions for eating Comb honey mentioned above). The comb doesn't easily melt so you might have to work at spreading it, however when it’s warm it does soften and is easily eaten. The comb wax of course is edible, has many health properties and digests well.
Your Grandparents would have most likely eaten honeycomb by taking a small piece comb and chewed on it until all the honey was gone and only wax was left to be discarded. Honey comb has definitely been enjoyed for generations and today is considered a gourmet treat!
