Tips: Sounds weird but this power paste packs a punch - try blending Kānuka or Mānuka honey with raw garlic, ginger and citrus to form a health paste you can down bravely by the spoon or dilute with hot water and lemon juice to make a soothing health tea. Other uses for both...Layer on crackers & cheese. Mix in smoothies. Combine lemon juice, ginger & hot water. Stir in porridge or enjoy straight from the spoon
Texture: Both are smooth and golden. Check out the honey swatch photo for an indication of tone and texture.
- Tree: Kānuka, closely related to the Mānuka plant, Kānuka is a taller native plant with a mild scent and clusters of smaller white flowers. Although Kānuka trees outlive Mānuka, it has a shorter nectar flowering season so harvesting Kānuka honey from the hive is precise and precious.
