As the name suggests, Szechuan honey is a blend 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.
Szechuan pepper- Szechuan pepper is a spicy external covering of berries belonging to the prickly-ash tree scientifically known as Zanthoxylum khasianum. In our local language Khasi, it is called Jaiur that is used as a culinary ingredient. These peppercorns have a sharp, tingling yet flavorful taste and is one the ingredients of the very famous ‘five spice’ powder used by the Chinese.
Despite the name Szechuan pepper, it does not really relate to the common black pepper instead they are totally different. Szechuan peppers are neither hot like chilli peppers nor pungent like black pepper instead it has an extremely unique aroma and flavour which is slightly lemony and creates a tingling numbness in the mouth.
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.
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.
