A Few Notes About Raw Honey

Raw honey is just honey that has not been pasteurized! We take our honey straight from the hive, and don’t process or subject it to high heat. Pasteurizing can kill bad (and beneficial) macrobiotics in the honey. You can use normal store-bought honey for this recipe… it doesn’t have to be raw. That is just the way we like to keep our honey. Babies under the age of 1 should not be given honey, and pregnant women should avoid unpasteurized foods. Eat responsibly!
The best place to find raw honey is straight from your local beekeeper! Check out a farmer’s market or farm stand near you – or reach out to your county or state beekeeping association to connect with beekeeper’s near by. Support local bees, local keepers, and enjoy the sweet benefits.
