Tropical Traditions Raw Organic Honey *CLOSED*


Tropical Traditions Raw Organic Honey is found in the frontier areas of Canada, and is only harvested for six's weeks during the summer.   Most honey on the market today comes from bee farms,  where the bees are encompassed in a certain area,  and usually got their pollen from only one flower.  Most of the plants that produce these flowers are grown with pesticides and fertilizers.  Most honey on the market are pasteurized in high heat and filtered,  which removes many of the useful nutrients and enzymes. Tropical Traditions Organic Raw Honey comes from Canada,  and must meet strict standards,  in order to be classified as certified raw organic honey. 

Tropical Traditions sent me a 17.6 oz. glass jar of their Certified Organic Canadian Raw Honey to review.  As soon as I opened it up I noticed that it is not liquidity like regular honey,  the consistency is allot more solid compared to regular honey.  This is due to the fact that Tropical Traditions Raw Organic Honey is warmed only long enough to flow,  unlike regular honey that is subjected to the heat of processing.  Raw Organic Honey contains fine texurized crystals,  this is because it is pure, unheated honey.  Certified Raw Organic Honey does not deteriorate with age,  it actually develops more of a taste as it continues to age. 

I did not care to much for the scent,  to me it just didn't have the same sweet scent that regular honey offers.  I gave it the taste test though,  and it sure tasted just as  sweet as regular honey!  I decided to use it on some homemade cornbread that I recently made,  and it sure didn't disappoint! I was surprised by how sweet and tasty it was,  even though it looked nothing like regular honey.  Tropical Traditions offers free honey recipes that will inspire you and give you some great ideas.  I especially like the looks of the Tropical Cheesecake Truffles!  You can try making it at home if you would like.  I might just have to make them myself!

TROPICAL CHEESECAKE TRUFFLES
Servings:5
Preparation Time: 10 min./chill 60 min.
  • 8 Ounce Cream Cheese
  • 2 Tablespoons Honey(Tropical Traditions)
  • 2 Ounce Raw Ripe Mango
  • 1 inch Vanilla Bean
  • 3 Ounce Dried Coconut for Rolling
Let the Cream Cheese soften at room temperature. 

In a large bowl,  mix the mango,  vanilla bean,  honey,  and cream cheese using a whisk or an immersion blender.  Place the mixture in the freezer for five minutes.  This will allow the cream cheese mixture to harden and then let you shape into small balls.

In a soup bowl,  place 3 oz dried coconut.  Shape cheese into truffle (ball) shapes,  roll in the coconut and place in individual candy cups or directly on a plate.  Chill in the fridge for 60 minutes and enjoy!
