Holiday Gift Guide: Tropical Traditions Organic Canadian Raw Honey (Giveaway)  

Sunday, November 21, 2010

One thing that I aspire to do here more is to share photos of things that I've cooked and recipes. I don't do it enough. I love to cook! I watch ALOT of Food Network and get inspired by watching the cooking shows there.

For part of my Holiday Gift Guide, Tropical Traditions offered me a variety of products, so I decided to get the Organic Canadian Raw Honey. It's versatile and can be used in many recipes.

I found this recipe when I did a Google Search for "Organic Canadian Raw Honey recipes":

Honey-Sweet Fruit Salsa Sundaes

2 cups chopped fresh strawberries
1/3 cup forest organic raw Honey
1 cup peeled and chopped fresh peaches or nectarines
1 teaspoon grated lime zest (peel)
1 to 2 quarts vanilla frozen yogurt, low-fat or regular ice cream
1 cup peeled and chopped kiwi fruit
1/4 cup fresh lime juice (or juice of 1 lime)

In medium bowl, combine strawberries, peaches and kiwi fruit, set aside. In gla ssmeasure, whisk together lime juice, honey and lime zest; pour sauce over fruit and gently stir to combine. When ready to serve, scoop frozen yogurt or ice cream in dishes. Spoon fruit salsa over top. Garnish with mint sprigs, if desired. Serve immediately.

Makes 8 servings. 

It was delicious! During the holidays I'll be doing lots of baking so I'm sure that this product will come in handy! Tropical Traditions has some recipes on their site that you can check out too!

About Tropical Traditions Organic Canadian Raw Honey:

Tropical Traditions Organic Raw Honey comes from the frontier areas of Canada, and is only harvested during a 6-week period in the summer. Tropical Traditions is the exclusive source of this premium organic honey in the U.S. Most commercial honeys available on the market today come from bee farms, where the bees are controlled within a certain area and get their pollen from usually only one kind of flower. Many of the plants that produce these flowers (clover, orange blossom, etc.) are grown with pesticides and fertilizers as well. In addition, almost all honeys on the market are pasteurized in high heat and filtered, removing many of the beneficial nutrients and enzymes.

Tropical Traditions Organic Raw Honey has not been subjected to the heat of processing, only warmed enough to flow (same temperatures the honey would see inside the hive). We select only premium honey that is pure, smooth and creamy, with the consistency of soft margarine at harvest. It contains live yeast and enzymes, because it has not been processed. It also contains pollen because it has not been filtered—merely screened.

Fine textured crystals are characteristic of totally pure, unheated, unprocessed, raw honey. Properly crystallized honey has a fine, smooth texture. Crystallized honey preserves natural goodness and doesn’t drip. The more rapidly honey crystallizes the finer the texture will be. It will also turn harder over time as it crystallizes. Truly raw honeys do not deteriorate with age, but like fine wines, continue to age and develop into more complex tastes.


Tropical Traditions has offered one lucky reader a jar of this awesome honey!
