    What is Honey Infusion?

    Honey infusions are simple concoctions that serve as a herbal remedy that not only provides maximum benefits but are delicious too. It is the easiest method of combining all sorts of herbs and spices with honey to bring about delicious and unique flavours as well as adding remedial values too.

    Combining the healing properties of various herbs and spices with raw honey is the most effective way of keeping the body free from diseases and helps in boosting the immune system.

    Ingredients in Peppery Honey

    As stated earlier, Peppery honey is a combination of natural ingredients that are beneficial as well as flavorful. The basic ingredients in this infusion are:

    Mawsynram Honey- A natural honey that is directly collected from the dense forests of Mawsynram where the flora is in abundance. Our Mawsynram honey is provided to us by our partnered beekeeper, Kong Elvira who hails from Thieddieng village in Mawsynram. This honey is in the pure and raw form and is free from all artificial additives.

    Black pepper- Known as the king of spice as it is widely loved and extensively used by people all over the world. Black pepper’s signature aroma originates from the berries of the tropical paper nigrum ; plant, one amongst the thousand species of the Piperaceae family. Black pepper is more than just a kitchen staple but is used medicinally in ancient medicines. It has active component piperine which does all the magic! It is responsible for all the health benefits that it provides and as been stated earlier, it is also an essential component that enhances curcumin absorption and activates it up to 2,000%. It works by supporting the gastrointestinal tract and the immune system.

    Ginger- Ginger, with a scientific name Zingiber officinale is one of the healthiest spices in the world. Renowned for its taste elevating properties and is a must-have in Asian cooking. It is loaded with essential nutrients and bioactive components that have powerful benefits for the body. People have been using ginger for cooking as well as for medicinal purposes since ancient times. Unique fragrance and flavour of this spice come from its natural oils, gingerol. Gingerol is the main bioactive compound that is responsible for many of its medicinal properties. It provides powerful anti-inflammatory and antioxidant effects and is a popular home remedy for nausea, stomach disorders and various other health issues.

    Long pepper- Piper longum is a popular spice of Meghalaya. It is known as “Pippali” in Sanskrit and in our local language khasi, it is known as “Sohmarit khlaw”. It is referred to as long pepper as the fruits are long and slender and look a little like dried green chillies as the spikes on its surface looks like a rough-skinned version of chilli peppers. This product is not only a native of Meghalaya, but it is also a solid insurance policy for the farmers of Meghalaya.

    Our Long pepper is sourced directly from Pynursla, Meghalaya and it has a bitter, spicy, and warming taste which is perhaps due to the presence of volatile content such as piplatine, piperlonguminine, piperine and other unique chemical components. These phytoconstituents are responsible for producing distinctive aroma, flavour, and health benefits.

    Why Does Foaming Occur in Honey Infusions?

    Honey infusion is a combination of herbs and spices with raw honey. This process includes mixing of ingredients together which leads to the formation of air bubbles and froth in the honey. It is a natural phenomenon that occurs during the processing and packaging of these honey infusions.
    When packed in containers, the natural ingredients get infused together and produces a unique and delicious flavour in the honey which gets enhanced with time. The longer you keep your honey-infused, the stronger the flavour will be.

    What Is the Shelf-life of Honey Infusions?

    The flavour of any honey infusion gets intense with time. It is preferred to use the honey infusion within six months from the manufacturing date because when kept for a longer duration, its taste can become extremely strong which may not be preferred by some.

    How Should Honey Infusions Be Stored?

    Although honey is a super-food, it is not a supernatural ingredient. The mixture of herbs and spices in it makes the honey more susceptible to get contaminated with moisture and other unwanted substances.
    To avoid such circumstances, honey infusions should be sealed properly after opening and should be stored in a cool and dry area. Addition of moisture or water to it will make the honey go bad and lead to a fermentation process which gives a sour and an unpleasant aftertaste.

    Flavour

    Peppery honey has been cautiously formulated with the intention to provide you with a potent infusion that is loaded with a maximum amount of benefits. It will provide you with an intense flavour from the ingredients that are directly sourced from our land Meghalaya and making their consumption very convenient by simply infusing it with the most versatile ingredient – Honey!

    Our Mawsynram honey gets infused with the most powerful spices that are rich and extremely beneficial. It has a sandy brown colour and is loaded with a whole lot of strong and peppery flavours that will tingle your taste buds. The consistency of this honey is so smooth that it easily dribbles down a spoon also making its consumption more efficient.

    The sweet and peppery taste is so pleasing and satisfying that will make you definitely fall in love with it! The potent benefits and the burst of flavours it produces is worthwhile and makes it significantly remarkable.
