Different honey’s come from different floral nectars depending on what is blooming at the time of collection by the bees. These different nectars are processed by the bees so that most of the water is driven off by drying and this can be smelt round the hives. The nectar becomes honey and is put into cells for storage. The cells are filled by the bees and then readied for capping by adding anti-fungals and antioxidants.
Plant types give varietal types of honey such as Salvation Jane, Blue Gum, Yellow Box etc. etc.
By dealing with honey in different ways we can produce candied honey or crystallised honey. Creamed honey is made from crystallised honey and can be enhanced in flavour by adding ginger or apricots and other dried fruits.
