What is so wonderful about this honey is the zest of an orange as a flavour that is added to it! Unlike other honeys, as soon as I infuse the orange into the honey, the colour alters into deep sienna almost immediately, to a vivid colour. The honey instantly gets an aromatic quality to it, so hard to resist! Of course, I have to first go about the usual routine of extracting honey before I infuse it! Orange infusion honey is definitely a fun and different style of consuming honey! The best part about infusing honey is the fact that I get to feel so creative at the end of it! Moreover, the room I make this honey in is filled with this zesty and citrus flavour! Providing a combined benefit of honey and oranges, this variant is bound to tease your senses! Rather than telling you how I make this wonderful flavoured honey, let me enlighten you with some of the benefits that you can receive by having this variant!
• Orange infused honey provides a wide variety of natural antioxidants to the diet. Orange blossom honey contains quercetin, hesperitin, luteolin, kaempferol, galangin, naringenin and isorhamnetin — antioxidants with anti-inflammatory, anti-allergy, anti-cancer and immune supporting effects in the body. The antioxidants in orange blossom honey may help to protect against free radical damage and reduce your risk of chronic illnesses.
