Our Wild Clover Honey is 100% pure natural honey that comes from distinct hives in the Southern farming pastures of the South Island of New Zealand. This is the area of New Zealand where the purest and best Wild Clover Honey is produced. White Clover is a legume that significantly reduces the need to add nitrogen fertilisers to our soils, which has a major benefit on the environment. By pollinating the White Clover, bees play a critical role in this process.
Our Wild Clover honey has a distinct flavor; it is deliciously light and creamy in texture with a chewy “fudge-like” consistency, and is a beautiful cream colour. Clover Honey has a clean, delicate, mild flavour that is sweet and lingers in the mouth. The aroma of the honey is similar to that of a sweet pear or apple.
New Zealand Honey Co. Wild Clover Honey is free from any impurities, additives, antibiotics and added sucrose and is a great natural source of energy. The glucose is absorbed very quickly by the body giving an immediate energy boost, while others sugars in this honey, such as fructose, give sustained energy that is released over time.
Wild Clover Honey is great for use in cooking, due to it’s mild flavor and intense sweetness. It is great as a spread on warm, fresh bread or scones, or with grainy crackers and nutty cheeses such as Emmental and Gruyere. It’s also ideal in sauces for desserts or on oven-roasted fruit like peaches and nectarines.
