Creamed Cinnamon Honey
What is Creamed Honey?
Creamed Honey is also known as Spun Honey or Whipped Honey, but what is it anyway?
Well simply put when the wildflower honey crystallizes we whip the honey (very carefully as honey is thick and can burn out the mixer if the motor gets too hot…trust us we know) and once it is whipped we add organic cinnamon powder to make the Creamed Cinnamon Honey. There are a lot of cinnamon powders available but few come from the actual cinnamon trees in Sri Lanka. Most of the cinnamon sold in stores comes instead from the cassia tree which cinnamon growers classify as a false cinnamon. The cinnamon tree variety is very flaky and crumbles right in the hand and has just the right flavor when combines with our creamed wildflower honey. But real cinnamon doesn’t just taste good it is also good for you.

All crystallized honey if it is warmed will uncrystallize so placing the creamed honey next to the stove or in the sun would not be a good idea. The taste will not change but the texture will.
Creamed Honey does not contain ANY dairy products, and like all raw honeys it does not spoil.
