Raw Honey

Raw Honey from Sardegna 

Luigi’s honey is raw! Perhaps we don’t say that enough. Lately, we’ve had a lot of people asking us about it. Our honey is made by Luigi Manias in Ales, Sardegna and it is as raw as honey gets.

Raw means that the honey is removed very gently from the honeycomb and jarred. It is unheated, unpasteurized, and unprocessed. Therefore, the naturally occurring good stuff is as potent as possible; think enzymes, minerals, and antioxidants with lots of bacteriostatic + healing properties.

Luigi’s honey is also organic which, as Luigi has taught us, is more relevant when it comes to honey than with other foods. Also, Luigi’s honey always tests negative for traces of glyphosate (!!).

Did you watch the video linked above? Our friend Dan Toffey just spent his sabbatical (from his job at Instagram) in Sardegna working with Luigi. This video is Dan’s IGTV beekeeping chronicle.

Also, check out Dan’s (crazy hypnotizing) video below. When you scrape off the outer wax, the pockets of honeycomb are full of liquid honey.

So, if it starts as liquid why does Luigi’s honey crystallize? 

It crystallizes because it is natural! All raw honey has the potential to crystallize. Crystallization is a good thing, a sign of high-quality honey.

If your honey crystallized and you want it to return to its liquid state, all you do is gently heat it up in a bain-marie and stir.

But eating it crystallized is amazing too! We like to spread it on fresh bread with our morning coffee.
