that honey - the best gift, - Down still it is possible to argue with Winnie. And here nobody doubts its advantage. The main thing - to learn to choose a qualitative product and to understand how it can be used in cookery.
Bee honey happens natural and forged. The last does not mean that it is created in underground laboratories. Just in this case bees eat artificial nectar - sugar syrup with addition of juice of vegetables, fruit, milk or medicines. Otherwise as honey polyvitaminic, dairy or even hematogenic could appear? By the way, artificial - always liquid as unlike the present does not possess ability to crystallize. Unfair sellers usually give it for fresh, recently pumped out. Therefore consider that if offer you liquid honey at the end of fall or in the winter, it is possible to tell with full confidence that it is falsification. Usually by winter almost all grades of a natural product in a varying degree crystallize also it as experts speak, “sits down“. If the honey bought by you long time remains liquid, you, most likely, deceived.
Natural honey happens three types: flower (heather, akatsiyevy, cotton, chestnut or mustard), mixed (mountain, forest, fruit or steppe) and padevy. You should not be frightened this name and to go on stubborn:“ To me only flower - another does not interest me“. Padevy honey of a bee is produced from sweet fall which accumulates on leaves and stalks of plants, most often - on leaves of an oak, a linden, an aspen, a willow or a hazel grove. It is dark, with a slight smell, viscous and viscous, can sometimes be bitterish or sourish. At its crystallization coarse-grained weight is formed. In some countries of Western Europe this honey is appreciated above flower and it is considered a curative product. No wonder: it contains more useful mineral substances.

Then it is necessary to reduce a little fire and to bring mix to boiling, constantly stirring slowly. Once again to lower fire and to boil thoroughly caramel within 15 - 20 min.
