We made a honey-chili sauce with our Apis cerana indica mustard honey. The almost classic combination of chili and honey is a delight when paired with some crispy knacki maach and pickled onion.


about the honey

Apis cerana indica has been described as docile, mild, tolerant and timid with a gentle temperament and relatively low stinging tendency. However, it does sting when cornered or disturbed. It is a cavity-nesting honey bee that nests in all habitats (including rainforest as well as highly disturbed areas such as human settlements) except where it co-occurs with another cavity-nesting honey bee species. In those areas it prefers disturbed habitats. Apis cerana indica forages mostly within one kilometre of the hive. These unique characteristics make it quite favourable for locally produced honey in a considerably safer and sustainable way. 

This one comes from the mustard plantations near the bee farms where they happily feed and produce this beautifully amber lightly flavoured honey.

what you can cook with it

You can use it as a regular processed sugar substitute. The flavours are not overwhelmingly intense and meld brilliantly into any dish. We loved it in a honey-chilli sauce which you can try conveniently yourself.
