Dark in colour, Heather honey has a powerful aroma that is reminiscent of the heather from which it comes. Uniquely, it has a very unusual texture: it is thixotropic, which means that it is jelly-like until you stir it, when it turns liquid. When you stop stirring it soon sets again. That's not to say that it crystallizes because this honey is not inclined to crystallize in ist pure form. Its strong, rich, smoky taste has been compared to toffee, and gets stronger the longer the honey is stored.
It is commonly served with ham, chicken, lamb, seafood and cold dishes and goes well with strong, black coffee.
Heather honey is extremely high in protein content. Because of its high content of mineral it is used to treat anemia, urinary infections and various nervous system affections.
