Our very valued Red House Honey supporter, University of Ottawa professor and author Seymour Mayne, penned this word sonnet with our hard-working bees in mind:

Red House Honey has just begun harvesting its 2016 crop of raw, OVH-certified kosher golden honey. We have 250 g and 140 g jars available. Call, message, tweet or email us for prices. Red House Honey produces its kosher honey under the supervision of Rabbi Levy Teitlebaum, and each jar bears the OVH certification mark.
This year, our kosher honey will be the subject of a pre-Jewish New Year article in the Jewish Bulletin, which will also list our great and loyal suppliers.
Don’t forget to order our best-selling Honey Love Body Bar.
All of our products are all-natural and made by hand, with love and care. Delivery is free and there is no tax. Items can be delivered early next week.
Raw honey comes straight out of the hive, with minimal filtering. It is not pasteurized, nor does it need to be. Unheated honey contains vital enzymes, is anti-microbial and anti-bacterial. Heating destroys honey’s vital nutrients although it does keep honey in its liquid state. If your raw honey crystallizes (hardens) just pop it in a warm water bath. Never microwave it!
Honey and honeycomb are considered “superfoods” meaning they are loaded with good things that provide abundant nutrition and health benefits. Honey contains simple sugars (sucrose and glucose). It is easily digested and can be converted to energy quickly. It has anti-oxidant properties and can discourage growth of micro-organisms due to its anti-microbial content.
Eating raw honey or honey right out of the comb is probably the sweetest thing you can do! Raw honey contains all the main amino acids and necessary B, C, D and E vitamins as well as essential enzymes. Honey is also said to boost metabolism and fight fat.
Honey’s antibiotic properties can have a big effect on your body. It cleans blood vessels and aids in digestion, not to mention it’s instant energy boost — much better than an energy drink.
Honey and honeycomb contain water, pollen, fructose, glucose, organic acids, proteins & enzymes. Bee pollen contains lavish amounts of protein, fibre, fatty acids and B-vitamins, making it an ideal energy boosting supplement.”
