Tropical Traditions Raw Canadian Honey (Review & Giveaway!)

This is the first product other than their amazing coconut oil, that I've tried from Tropical Traditions. I gotta say though, they're two for two in the Jenkins house- this honey is awesome. I can't ever go back to the 'honey bear' kind from the store after this. Consider me a honey snob ;)



This honey is unlike any honey you're getting at the grocery store. Instead of being liquid, and at least somewhat pour-able this is some solid honey! If used in cooking, you'll need to soften it with heat first, but we've had no issue incorporating this into any recipe we've tried (and we don't have a microwave!)

My favorite way to use it though? To sweeten my tea. I scoop out a clump and put it in the bottom of my mug before I add the tea bag, a squeeze of lemon, and hot water. A quick stir later and I'm sipping away while I work.



You may notice on the jar up there that it mentions 'raw', 'wild', and 'unprocessed'. Things we're probably not used to seeing in association with our honey- so allow me to explain and share a few details:

"Tropical Traditions Organic Raw Honey has not been subjected to the heat of processing, only warmed enough to flow (same temperatures the honey would see inside the hive). It contains live yeast and enzymes, because it has not been processed. It also contains pollen because it has not been filtered-merely screened. 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." -from Tropical Traditions
I'll be the first to admit this isn't the only 'raw honey' out there- there are many. But I firmly believe in the Tropical Traditions company, and instill a lot of trust and value in their products. They are extremely up front about the sourcing of their materials, and have wonderful customer service. Even though this is my first experience with raw honey, I would buy no other. If you still don't believe me, check out the testimonials page and see what others are saying about it! In my humble opinion Tropical Traditions is the best place to get Virgin Coconut Oil AND organic raw honey now. 

I've also used this honey to create a simple two-ingredient face mask, and I have a recipe coming up next month where we plan to use the honey as a basis for a new cocktail- excited!! Perhaps some rigorous cocktail recipe testing is in order this weekend ;)

So now that I've sung the praises of this honey, and told you my favorite ways to use it...who want's to win some for themselves??? Thanks to the generosity of Tropical Traditions, I have one jar to give away to a very lucky reader!
