Honey

Honey is a sweet food substance processed from floral nectars. The aroma and taste of organic honey depend on the flower whose nectar it’s made from.

Different Types of Honey

A delicious food item, honey is classified in two different ways:

Honey based on production season

  • Spring honey: Citrus, Robinia, and fruit tree honey
  • Autumn honey: High mountain honey

Honey based on the number of flowers the nectar comes from

  • Monofloral honey: Honey is made from the nectar of a single plant; clover and sunflower honey fall into this category.
  • Polyfloral honey: Honey is made from the nectar of multiple flowers.

What is a honeycomb (raw honeycomb)?

As the name suggests, honeycomb is the hexagonal prismatic wax cells that are used by honey bees to store larvae and honey. Including some honey and waxy cells, you can eat the entire fresh honeycomb.

What Plants are Honeys Taken From?

Honey often gets its health benefits from the plant it comes from. The primary plants from which honey in Iran is taken from (through honey bees) include:

  • Clover (including white and red clover)
  • Alfalfa, Coronilla, Coriander, Citrus, and Sunflower
  • Wild plants or wildflower honey (such as thyme, milkvetch, cattail, spear thistle, and artichoke)

How to tell Original from fake honey

You always need to be careful which food items you buy because they go right into your body and directly affect your health. Likewise, it’s essential to know how to tell authentic and fake honey apart. So, in this section, Cyruscrafts gives you a few golden tips on how to recognize royal honey:

  1. Smell the honey.

    You should be able to smell the scent of the flower from the honey. Fake honey doesn’t smell like any particular flower or plant.
  2. Check if the honey sinks in water.

    Natural honey sinks to the bottom of a glass of water without dissolving, whereas fake honey dissolves quickly before it can sink to the bottom.

  1. Heat the honey

    When you heat real honey, no bubbles form on its surface, but they do on fake honey because it contains water.

  1. Check the honey’s viscosity

    Due to its high viscosity (thickness and stickiness of liquids), real honey moves slowly from one side of a container to the other, while fake honey moves fast. Fake honey is almost runny because it contains a high amount of sweeteners and other additives — and it can’t be made thicker because then it would crystalize pretty fast

  1. See for how long the taste stays.

    The taste of Pure honey stays in your mouth for a short time after eating, but fake honey leaves its taste for a much longer time because it contains sweeteners.
  2. Check how translucent the honey is

    You can easily see things through fake honey in a glass jar, which would be impossible if the honey was real.
  3. Use a slice of bread.

    Put some of the honey on a slice of bread. If the honey wets the bread, then it’s fake.
  4. Use a piece of paper

    Natural honey never gets absorbed by the paper, whereas fake honey would quickly.

When and how to consume honey

Honey is the best thing to have with breakfast because not only does it supply the sugar your body needs but it also helps regulate your heart rate, blood flow, and blood pressure. You can sweeten your morning tea with some honey. It’s recommended that honey is one of the first things you eat with your breakfast. Also other uses of honey in a healthy diet:

  • Mixing honey with cereal grains, corn, bread, and milk makes a super healthy combination that helps detox your body.
  • A milk-and-honey mix is a sure remedy for cold and some throat problems. All you need to do is to add a tablespoon of honey to a glass of milk and mix it. It is recommended for you to drink honey milk with other Persian tasty food and cookies like ghottab and baghlava.

  • Honey and sesame make a fantastic combination that can boost your energy a lot. You can have this mix as a snack. Your energy levels usually drop in the afternoon; honey gives you the energy you need for the rest of your day.
  • If you want to lose weight, have some honey before going to bed because it increases your metabolism during sleep, helping your body burn fat. Also, a mix of honey and lemon juice can considerably help you burn fat and cleanse your stomach.

How to store and maintain honey

  • Store honey in the right container. Honey is acidic, so it’s very dangerous to store it in reactive metal containers because the acid can make the metal dissolve into honey. The best containers for storing honey are glass, enameled, and ceramic ones.
  • Don’t expose honey to direct heat or sunlight. It is also recommended to store honey at room temperature.
  • Close the lid of the honey jar as tight as possible.

Which Iranian cities produce organic honey?

One of the most delicious Persian local honey, the “southern wildflower honey” is harvested and processed in the islands of Qeshm and Kish, among others. Honey bees in the region make their hives in the grey mangrove jungles of the Persian Gulf and feed on native plant species; this is why the honey tastes so unique. In southern Iran, you can also find wild high mountain honey, one of the varieties that never crystallizes. Other Persian honey are harvested in Birjand, Ferdows, Sanandaj, Nahavand, Kermanshah, Andimeshk, Izeh, Dezful, Shushtar, Borazjan, Ilam, Bandar Abbas, Khansari, Takab, Sabalan, Kazerun, Farashband, Firuzabad, and Meymand.
