Honey Thousand Flowers Mountain
Thousand honey flower essences mountain is rich in nectar,
that make distinctive color and flavor intensity
Our honey has been gathered from Mountain blooms rosemary, thyme and almond, thereby getting a taste of "pure honey", as our tasters commented usual, our customers.
If Honey Thousand Flowers "normal" is considered as a substitute for sugar, this being more palatable, would be regarded as the sweetener of the Angels, Cherubim and Seraphim .., that is, it is ideal.
The nectars collected at high altitude produce a highly prized honey against the common cold
Definition of honey,
according to the Codex Alimentarius.:
Honey means the natural sweet substance produced by bees from the nectar of blossoms or secretions of living parts of plants or excretions of plant sucking insects that are living parts of plants on which the bees collect, transform and combine with specific substances of their own, and store and leave in the comb to ripen and ages.
Curiosities of Honey: : "The honey is not spoiled. Thanks to its high concentration of sugar, kills bacteria by osmotic lysis. The airborne yeasts can not thrive in honey due to low moisture content. Shipments of human bodies in ancient times became immersed in honey, for example Alexander the Great was moved from Babylon to Alexandria in Egypt in 323 BC and the Agesilaus, king of Sparta, from Egypt to his hometown in 360 BC, using honey to prevent decomposition. The preservative effect of honey is due to its low concentration of water and is identical to that enables the prolonged retention of sweets and fruit in syrup where sugary water content decreases.
Watch out for the babies, because: : "The honey (as well as other sweeteners) can also be extremely dangerous for babies. This is because when mixed with acidic digestive juices of the child not create an ideal environment for the growth of Clostridium botulinum spores, which produce toxins. Botulism spores are among the few bacteria that survive in honey, but are also widely present in the environment. When these spores are harmless to adults, due to your heartburn, digestive system of young children not is developed enough to destroy them, so the spores can potentially cause infant botulism. For this reason it is advised not to feed honey or other sweetener to children under 18 months.
Preparation the honey wine: wine or mead fermented mead honey wine produced likewise sometimes called fermented mead mead mead or wine. To prepare this wine honey is diluted with twice its weight of water, add 5 g randomly. tartaric acid per liter of fermentation mixture to stabilize. This dilution is boiled until it has shrunk a quarter of its volume. When the liquid has cooled add a teaspoon of honey virgin and a couple of tablespoons of melted sugar for color, after which he left to ferment. The process culminates several months later and is ready to be bottled.
Crystallization (or solidification)
In general, almost all honey solidify over time. This natural phenomenon is also called crystallization. It depends, among other factors, the percentage of sugar present: the higher the percentage of glucose crystallizes faster. The crystallization can be visualized as small crystals or honey that has solidified. In general, all honeys crystallize over time. Very few who fail to achieve that status.
Below 14 ° C accelerates the solidification. Heather honeys harden quickly and takes a long chestnut.
Honey does not spoil: "The honey is not spoiled. Thanks to its high concentration of sugar, kills bacteria by osmotic lysis. The airborne yeasts can not thrive in honey due to low moisture content. In ancient movements of human bodies were dipped in honey, for example Alexander the Great was moved from Babylon to Alexandria in Egypt in 323 BC and the Agesilaus, king of Sparta, from Egypt to his hometown in 360 BC, using honey to prevent decomposition. The preservative effect of honey is due to its low concentration of water and is identical to that enables the prolonged retention of sweets and fruit in syrup where sugary water content decreases.
Honey for wound healing, -, is applied as an ointment on wounds because it is not irritable, not toxic, sterile, bactericide, nutritious, easy to apply and more comfortable than other ointments
Such is the gigantic work of bees: -the preparation of honey begins in the same plant. The nectaries, two glands located near the base of the flower, are those that secrete nectar that bees extract with their long mouths. helped with his tongue, bees seeking nectar, storing the bags in their crops or honey to return to the hive below.
Incredibly, a bee must visit a million flowers to prepare only one hundred grams of honey. .
Once they reach the hive, the bees spend their suppliers to bees receiving nectar that, for some time, also keep you in their crops. Here, the nectar experienced a very complex processing, to supplement the home is already in the crop of bees providers.
The bee between their maxillae and makes his tongue forward and then bends down, she appeared on a drop of nectar. After the bee returns to swallow and fill his trunk inside. This action of coating droplet of nectar on the horn and return to the crop is repeated from 120 to 240 times in a row. Only after this may bee for a hexagonal lattice in which to deposit the drop of nectar. However there is still much for the transformation of nectar into honey.
If the bees are too busy receiving and not have time to get the nectar, the providers suspended their loads in the upper wall of the alveoli of wax. A very fast procedure that allows for intensive evaporation of water.
The nectar contains about 40 to 80% water. For honey, bees must eliminate three-quarters of li; liquid, for which the droplet transfer from one cell to another as many times as necessary to acquire self-consistency of honey.
In this fascinating concentration of honey are involved a large number of bees, by beating its wings created inside the hive aeration accelerates the process of evaporation. Apart from this purely mechanical procedure, there is an identical concentration of nectar in the crop of the bee. The water in the nectar is absorbed by the Malpighian cells and is evacuated to the outside. Furthermore, in the body of the bee nectar is enriched with diastase, organic acids, antibacterial substances, and so on. all for that, honey is produced, the water content does not exceed 18 to 20%.
Once the alveoli are full of honey, bees and opercula sealed with wax. Stored this way, honey may be kept for several years. A colony of bees, is a season, arrives to pick up 150 kilos of honey
