It’s finally here, Whipped Cinnamon Honey! This is something we have all been waiting for for a long time. But what is it? Whipped honey is created when you have a honey that crystallizes very quickly (which happens when glucose sugars break down and form tiny crystals). By taking some of that crystallized honey and whipping it together with a honey that’s still in a liquid state, we create a perfectly delicious “whipped honey.” Whipped honey varieties are caught somewhere in between a liquid and a solid state. Whipped honeys are spreadable and creamy in texture. At Savannah Bee Company, we like to use a very special wildflower honey from the Rocky Mountains of Montana and Idaho for whipping. I actually prefer a crystallized or whipped honey to liquid honey, because it’s so easy to put on toast or an English muffin, and I loved that slightly grainy texture.
I’ve enjoyed our Winter White honey for a long time, which is a simple, but absolutely delicious whipped wildflower honey. I have really enjoyed stirring Winter White honey in my coffee as a sugar substitute and spreading it on apple slices ever since I started working for Savannah Bee. It has a slight cinnamon flavor that occurs naturally in the crystallized white honey. But with this new whipped honey, we have added a generous amount of top notch cinnamon to really make the flavor really pop! The only word for our Whipped Cinnamon Honey is decadent. This amazing honey has just the right texture too – fluffy and a little grainy from the crystals. You can heat it up and drizzle it over bread for an instant cinnamon bun. Sounds too good to be true, right?
All of us here at Savannah Bee really wanted this honey to be something special so we have pulled out all the stops in creating this product. We decided to use the highest quality cinnamon available. We have selected a cinnamon known as Ceylon Cinnamon, which is native to and produced in Sri Lanka. Ceylon Cinnamon is sourced from the plant Cinnamomum Zeylanicum. Ceylon Cinnamon is known throughout the world for its incredible health promoting properties. It is recommended across Asia to help lower cholesterol, prevent heart disease, and for blood sugar regulation. In addition, Ceylon cinnamon is suggested to be an important part of a cancer prevention diet!
The type of cinnamon found most commonly in grocery stores is called Cassia Cinnamon, which comes from the Cinnamomum cassia plant that grows mainly in China and Indonesia. Although the cinnamon derived from this plant is also naturally antibacterial, it is nutritionally inferior to Ceylon Cinnamon. So, naturally we decided to make our spun cinnamon honey with Ceylon Cinnamon. Not only does our Whipped Cinnamon Honey taste like a delicious dessert, the combination of the cinnamon and honey together deliver a powerfully nourishing synergy.
Now is the time to indulge in something delicious and nutritious with our new Whipped Cinnamon Honey. And, whenever you start to feel guilty about the calories, just remember you’re lowering your cholesterol and preventing diseases down the road. I can’t wait to pick up my own bottle now that it is finally available!
