Jarrah is an amber coloured honey with a full-bodied nutty malt flavour. Jarrah honey is considered a prized honey amongst beekeepers as the forests that it comes from dwindle in size from dieback and clearing. Delicious in all cuisine, Jarrah honey is not only smooth on the palate but has amazing healing abilities.
Flowering just every two years, the cream-coloured Jarrah blossom yields a rich medium to dark amber coloured honey that is lower in glucose than other honey varieties, with a deep and complex flavour.
