For Your Appreciation
Sumac is an essential ingredient in Middle Eastern food, adding a lemon-like flavour and beautiful colour to a dish.
*Not to be confused with poison sumac found in North America, sumac is a common spice in the Mediterranean and the Middle East. When ground into powder form it has a lovely burgundy hue and gives foods a slightly tangy, lemony flavor. In Turkish cuisine, sumac powder is used mainly as a garnish. It is sprinkled on meats, dumplings with yoghurt, and mixed with onions to accompany sauteed calf liver.
Our horopito infused honey is hand extracted using humane methods that don’t stress or agitate our bees.
We do NOT heat our honey. Heating honey kills the naturally occurring enzymes that make honey so wonderful and great for your body.
Commercial beekeepers often heat honey to speed up efficiency - as the hotter honey is, the easier it is to pour when bottling.
At Rhayne we know that good things take time. We never filter. We gently strain our honey by hand, removing chunks of wax and making sure that we keep all the natural goodness in, whilst blending with horopito to create a "sweet heat".
