    Raw Honey

    Anyone know where I can find raw and preferably organic honey in Hong Kong?

    Health Gate sometimes has it, although Sogo sells the same brand slightly cheaper. Sorry, can't remember the name but it has a white top and the label has a white background.

    You can also check Little Giant.

    Shatin has a bee keeper that sells raw honey, along the path to the Buddhist temples, ( not the 10,000 Buddhas temple path, the other one) which crosses the stream, once you cross the stream, you'll see the bee keepers hives up ahead on the shoulder of the path. Its the path behind the basket ball court, which is closest to the ICAC govt building and where IKEA is from that MTR exit.

    I took some photo's of the hives and the bee keepers phone number, as it was the first one that I'd seen here in HK, just for future reference..

    There is also the Po Sang Yuen Bee Farm out in Fanling.

    Hmmmm, honey.

    What is "raw" but not "organic" honey? Or vice-versa? Organic is just a buzz-word.
    Anyway, we have bought from Skyhook's vendor--good stuff. And that path is the back way to 10,000 Buddhas. Sometimes the beekeepers are on the path selling out of a cart and not at the hives, but every person on that path seems to know where they are if you ask.

    Sometimes they sell raw honey (if that's the stuff still on the honeycomb) down the flower shop area of Mad Mong Kok.

    Raw honey is unheated, unprocessed, and unfiltered. And should not eaten by pregnant women, babies and people with compromised immune systems.

    I use it to make cookies (ground nuts, raw honey, spices) but always make sure those folks don't eat them.

    And by the way, while I cannot claim to know too much about babies, I do know that as far as adults are concerned, raw honey is one of the most healing foods one can introduce into their diet. Its antibacterial, and antifungal properties alone make it suitable for a healthy choice, not to mention its numerous benefits for digestion, skin ailments and sinus-related problems.

    Any honey is bad for babies. Or can be bad for babies, as I imagine the consequences aren't universal.

    But Claire ex-ax, wouldn't your "raw" also be "organic"? I'm not even sure what "non-organic" honey would be, although I imagine it might exist. And people seem to have varying definitions of "organic", most of which would boggle Webster. Sort of like "middle-class".
