Rosemary honey: benefits and properties
At present, and since many years ago, it is possible to enjoy a very great diversity of honey as natural as they are wonderful, not only in terms of their delicious and delicate flavor but also for their different healing and medicinal qualities. As you surely know, honey is the food produced by bees based on the nectar that they extract from flowers. For this, the process of elaboration takes place inside the organism of the bee, in which the nectar is condensed by means of the action of mixing the product and certain ferments.
When this honey is removed from the honeycombs by man it tends to be a fluid and viscous natural product. But then, with the passage of time, it tends to compact and acquire a somewhat lighter tone. Precisely, when the honey crystallizes is an indication of its purity.

The one known as rosemary honey it is the honey produced by the bees when they leap from the rosemary flowers. This is a very aromatic shrub, woody and evergreen, which can reach 2 meters in height. It presents small and abundant leaves, with a linear shape and a characteristic dark green color whose underside is whitish, showing in turn a characteristic hairiness.
Rosemary honey has a thick texture and has a color reminiscent of amber. Of course, when your texture crystallizes it becomes much harder, and its color turns white.
