I got the chance to review Tropical Traditions Organic Raw Honey. I was trying to figure out what to use the honey on and decided to use it in one of my family’s favorite dishes. Honey Mustard Chicken. This Honey is unprocessed and comes in a solid form. You have to scrape out what you need and I warmed it in the microwave to get it to that liquid form we all know. I mixed in the mustard for the dish and I couldn’t tell the difference:

This honey is CERTIFIED Organic.
Certified Organic Raw Honey from Canada
In order for honey to be certified organic, the beehives must be placed in isolated areas miles from the dense population, industry, traffic congestion, and farm fields treated with chemicals and landfills. Second, a bee’s flying range is determined by their natural instinct which tells them to stay within their natural four mile range from the hive location. Finding area which can be certified organic is extremely difficult, which is why there are so few certified organic honeys on the market. Tropical Traditions sources its honey from hives in the wild frontier areas of Canada.
These regions are a rich source of wild vegetation that produce some of the finest honey in the world. The USDA and Canadian Organic Certification implies a rigorous set of standards and conditions that must be adhered to by both the producer (beekeeper) and the packager. All aspects of the honey production including the source of the nectar, forage area of the bees, management of the bees, extracting process, transportation, “lot” management, processing temperature, integrity (no co-mingling with non-organic honey), screening, and, packaging materials, are taken into account in the certification process.
This honey worked great with my recipe and got rave reviews (well after a kitchen mishap that was all my fault but we are not going to talk about that)
