Macadamia Honey ( by Frank Rasclas )
The macadamia tree is native to Australia, but it is now cultivated in many warm climates around the globe, including New Zealand. The macadamia nuts are considered something of a delicacy. The nuts rank the highest in terms of omega-3 versus omega-6 fatty acids, which makes them the healthiest group of nuts to consume in terms of fat content.
As Beekeepers, I've met Mr Alexey Lykho, the owner of Macadamia Plantation of NZ, Okaihau, and asked him to use the areas for spring hive - buildup and a little honey production.
Macadamia Honey is a type of honey produced by bees they are placed near macadamia nut tree orchards, where all of their pollination activity is focused on the white flowers that the macadamia nut tree produces. Macadamias flower September to November but the main flush is in October. This flowering may yield both pollen and honey. When macadamia is yielding honey, bees breed very well and they can collect 10 to 15 kg surplus of a dark slightly molasses - floured honey. However, most honey produced from macadamia orchards is not 100% macadamia honey, but from other floral sources associated with the orchards. The plantation has a covenanted native bush block, avocado, tropical fruit, persimmon trees, eucalyptus. All the paddocks are green and honey sources are flowering. A walk through an empty ewes paddock a few days ago revealed a host of honey plants flowering. White and Red Clover, Cat-sear, Thistles and lots of Lotus major. The bees were all over the Penny Royal.
This naturally blended Macadamia Bush Honey is truly happy marriage of two honeys that has some very unique qualities; in fact, we've never tasted anything quite like it. Its full, fruity Macadamia Honey flavor (think warm caramel with a tropical tang) is quite different from the rich, round, neutral sweetness of our Bush Honey.
Our Honey has a smooth texture which is the result of microscopic crystals. The texture is related to how the nectar crystallizes and crystallization is a result of the specific combination of different sugars present in the nectar. Honey is largely composed of sugar with small amounts of minerals and vitamins but there are different kinds of sugar in honey - dextrose and levulose are the main sugars. Honey from different flower (nectar) sources have different sugar compositions; and that's the main reason why different honeys have different textures.
Crystallization in honey is a complex process, involving the proportions of sugars that affect crystallization timing. Essentially, honey with a higher proportion of levulose to dextrose crystallizes more slowly, while honey with a lower proportion of levulose to dextrose crystallizes more quickly. Most honey have a high levulose to dextrose ratio and crystallize slowly over time, causing large gritty crystals to grow; honeys that crystallize quickly, on the other hand, grow tiny crystals. Thus, the faster honey crystallizes the smaller its crystals, and the smaller the crystals the smoother the honey.
Our Macadamia Honey crystallizes very quickly, within a couple days of bottling, due to its relatively high dextrose to levulose sugar ratio; this fast crystallization leads to its naturally thick, smooth, creamy texture. macadamia flower nectar has less dextrose in relation to levulose, making it crystallize more slowly and typically remain liquid for about a year.
This year's natural blend of a hint of bush honey in the macadamia Honey is a unique mix of nectar and combination of sugars, resulting in a smooth, crystallized but soft-textured honey. Macadamia Honey is a fluid yet deeply flavored and colored honey showing a complex aroma of malt, caramel and light soy sauce. The malty flavors continue in the mouth along with some fruity notes. This richly flavored honey adds a distinctive flavor to a marinade, and deliciously caramelizes red meat and poultry on the barbeque.
Our Macadamia bush honey develops a unique regional character. Some of you have been waiting for our Macadamia Honey for a long time. Order a jar right now through our store and get a taste of the macadamia magic, 100% organic and raw, while it lasts.
We also produce macadamia nut honey, it involves mixing our macadamia Honey with ground, raw macadamia nuts to create a type of topping for toast or as an ingredient in macadamia-flavored baked goods and candy.
Because we are involved in all aspects of honey production, we have control over the quality and flavor of the honey of the honey "From the hive to the Honey Pot".
