Raw Honey (Wildflower)
Our raw honey is natural and unpasteurized and comes in a 7kg pail (15.68 pounds). This local honey comes from a small family-run apiary just south of Calgary. Since it’s raw, the honey is thick like peanut butter. The flowers are mainly clover and alfalfa.

And of course honey is perfect in your baking. Want to understand why? Well, read our upcoming blog entry for more information on how to substitute honey for your sugar. Honey is sweeter than sugar, so you use less honey that you would sugar. Also, honey keeps your cookies moister. That’s because it acts as a humectant. That’s something that draws in and retains moisture. Cookies made with honey don’t get stale as quickly, either. So it’s a win-win!
