Bee Kind Honey Infusions
Our Process of Infusing our Local Honey for Quality and Safety
Honey is a delicious and beneficial natural sweetener that can be added to enhance a wide variety of foods and dishes. It's mild flavour profile can also easily take on the delightful and welcome flavour of most herbs, spices, flowers, and fruit peels through the process of infusion. Infused honey also makes a great gift for the friends and families in your life.
In all of our Honey Infusions, we use a combination of techniques to infuse our honey. Firstly, all of our honey is locally sourced and most of it is made by our own bee colonies that we manage in South Surrey. We try to use the lightest coloured and mildest tasting honey for our infusions because that gives it the best tasting infusions. The mild flavour of the honey doesn't overpower the taste of what we are infusing it with. We also try to use local herbs and spices to infuse our honey. Lavender flower is supplied by Lavender Eight Farms in South Langley. We only use whole ingredients and do not use any essential oils in our infusions. Ingredients can be either dried or fresh.
We use a combination of techniques to infuse our honey. The "fast" method is done by applying heat. We do this on the outstart of our infusions for the first 2-3 days. We apply only low heat, thereby not destroying the health benefits of the honey. After the heat process is done, we move on to the "slow" process of infusion, and that is, time. We let our infusions sit anywhere from 4 - 6 weeks. During this time, we'll test the infusions for taste.
We then apply low heat and strain the honey, leaving only the golden honey and the lovely taste of the infusion. Each batch is safety tested for moisture levels. All our moisture levels are below 17.5%, thereby making it safe for consumer consumption. Honey has an average pH level of 3.9
