Forest honey is known for its dark color and strong, slightly malty aroma. This delicacy is naturally less common in northern Germany than in southern Germany. However, there are also some forested regions in northern Germany where you can harvest forest honey.

This forest honey from Hanse Honig comes from the extensive forested nature that can be found around the Schaalsee in West Mecklenburg. Its taste is a bit milder than the strong forest honey from the Black Forest. Its soft, creamy consistency and its versatile aromatic taste provide the basis for a varied honey roll with northern German forest honey and for pastries with a pleasant honey taste.

Everything you need to know about our honey

What is special about this honey?

Our honey is carefully sourced from local beekeepers and represents the highest quality and purity. Each variety has its unique flavors and health benefits.

Is the honey certified organic?

How should I store the honey?

Store the honey in a cool, dark place. Direct sunlight and heat can affect the quality. Close the jar tightly after each use.

How long does the honey last?

Honey theoretically has an almost unlimited shelf life if stored properly. However, each jar has a best-before date, which is indicated on the label.

Can honey crystallize?

Yes, crystallized honey is a natural process and a sign of quality. You can liquefy it again by gently warming it in a water bath.

Is the honey suitable for vegans?

Honey is an animal product and therefore not suitable for a vegan diet. We recommend it for vegetarians and anyone who appreciates natural sweeteners.

What is the best way to use honey?
