Basswood, or Linden trees produce a small yellow flower, rich in nectar for a few weeks in July. We carefully place our bees in groves of basswood trees right before the bloom opens, and harvest the honey when the petals begin to drop. This small crop harvesting method produces a light, delicious tasting honey that compliments herbal teas and other delicate palate foods as it won't overpower other flavors.
The John Russell Honey Company started back in 1999 in Petersfield, Manitoba. With a culinary background and a desire to provide something different for his customers, John started blending only the finest ingredients into his creamed honey to flavor it.
No extracts, no artificial flavors, no food dyes, just pure fruit and spices. This dedication to quality and care soon built up a loyal following of clientele, and although the business has grown greatly in size, the core values remain the same:
Only the best Manitoba Honey is produced and used.
Only pure ingredients ever go into our honey.
Only hand packaging will ensure great quality.
As a family business, we truly enjoy bringing the best of what we do to your family's table.
Pure Manitoba Basswood(Linden)Honey
Honey, which is produced by bees, is a natural sweetener with a higher nutritional value and a lower glycemic index than refined white sugar. At 10 calories per 1/2 tsp., it is a source of both simple and complex carbohydrates, so therefore provides both short- and long-term energy. Honey is known as "nature's medicine" because it has antibacterial and healing properties. Vitamins and Minerals: Honey, particularly the raw, unheated and unpasteurized variety like ours, is rich in a number of essential vitamins. These include the B vitamins niacin, also called vitamin B3, riboflavin and pantothenic acid, which are important for many body functions including energy metabolism. Niacin is also important to cell repair, and riboflavin is also essential for tissue health. Pantothenic acid aids the metabolism of fats and cholesterol. Honey also contains trace amounts of calcium and magnesium. Antioxidants: Honey also contains chemical combinations called antioxidants that are important for their health-promoting and disease-fighting abilities. Honey contains phytochemicals, or plant chemicals, called polyphenols that have antioxidant properties to remove free radical toxins in the body. Free radicals are created through normal body processes and can contribute to cell damage, disease, inflammation and aging. The antioxidant capacity of honey is currently under further study.
