Manuka honey, which comes from Australia and New Zealand, is a popular product among people who eat honey to be healthy but Björn's propolis honey is a better understood, local alternative. Propolis is known for its remarkable ability to fight microbes and when blended with our local wildflower and clover honey, it becomes a tasty and healthy immune booster.
When we eat local honey, we expose our bodies to trace amounts of local pollens. The idea is that our bodies then become accustomed to these pollens and don't release histamines. Without histamines, there are no symptoms of seasonal allergies.
Propolis is an age-old remedy made by the bees to keep germs out of their hive. It is known for its remarkable abilities to assist in the fight against viruses, bacteria, microbes, and fungus. Recent studies suggest it may also help with seasonal allergies.
Björn's Colorado Honey will still be doing a few events during this winter season. See the full blog post for where you can find us!
There is nothing like hot, tender, fried chicken, it's a southern classic and a perfect savory item to pair with honey. In this recipe, we use a raw whipped honey hot sauce to complement the crispy chicken.
