[Jirisan Hanbong] Jirisan Mountain Honey (2 Varieties)


Many people describe honey as 'sweet' - but it's so much more!

Depending on the type of nectar, honey can聽taste聽floral, fruity, nutty, earthy and even spicy! Today, we introduce two聽premium honeys harvested in Jirisan聽Mountain: Snowbell and Chestnut Honey. As the name states, the聽nectar is derived from the flowers of the Snowbell and Chestnut Tree. These two trees blossom for only two months - during May and June. The Jirisan bees get busy聽and create a limited supply of delicious聽honey every year, which is then masterfully extracted by beehive master Kim Il Kwon.

So what do these honeys taste like? The honey from the Snowbell tree has a balanced sweetness - not overly sweet. It also has a slight floral note that pairs nicely with breakfast foods like cheese, greek yogurt and fruit. The chestnut聽honey is much darker in color - and the flavor is more聽robust. It isn鈥檛 as sweet as the Snowbell but has an aftertaste of chestnuts!聽A unique, local flavor that works beautifully聽with morning聽toast and baked goods.

Natural pure honey is filled with mineral and vitamins. But there are many聽large brands that 鈥渨ater-down鈥 honey with聽artificial sweeteners聽like sugar to lower prices. In Korea, producers label their honey with a carbon isotope ratio聽score. This indicates the pureness of the honey. All-natural honey has a score that ranges low, from -23.5% ~ -33% (the lower the better). Sugar, for reference, has a score聽in the high -10% ~ -20%.

Both of the Jirisan honeys have a score of -23.5% - indicating a pure, all-natural honey.
