Aseda Wild Honey

You may be surprised by the rich dark brown color of this wild treasure, one of the darkest wild honeys in the world. Darker honey has added health benefits due to its higher concentration of minerals, vitamins, antioxidants, and natural enzymes. For the unique, rich flavor of Aseda Wild Honey you can thank the shea trees, the cacao trees, and the calabash plants from which the pollen is collected. One taste will flood your senses with the essence of Africa’s natural forests.

My review of Aseda Wild Honey

Okay, I’m being honest when I say that I’ve grown up on the honey that comes in the bear container. I have been known to use honey in my tea and make honey butter, my husband even makes peanut butter and honey sandwiches. That’s all good, but now that I’ve tried Aseda Wild Honey I’m never going back to the bear.

The Aseda Wild Honey is rich and sweet and nutty and it is unlike anything I’ve ever tasted before. It tastes great with brie on a multi-grain cracker, but it also tastes wonderful with havarti on a buttery cracker. I’ll even tell you that I ate some out of the jar and just savored it like chocolate. It is absolutely the best tasting honey I’ve ever had.

We’ve actually almost finished the entire container in 2 weeks. Something about wine, cheese, crackers and honey. Yep, I’m addicted.

Vanishing of the Bees DVD


Honeybees have been mysteriously disappearing across the planet, literally vanishing from their hives.

Known as Colony Collapse Disorder, this phenomenon has brought beekeepers to crisis in an industry responsible for producing apples, broccoli, watermelon, onions, cherries and a hundred other fruits and vegetables. Commercial honeybee operations pollinate crops that make up one out of every three bites of food on our tables.

Vanishing of the Bees follows commercial beekeepers David Hackenberg and Dave Mendes as they strive to keep their bees healthy and fulfill pollination contracts across the U.S. The film explores the struggles they face as the two friends plead their case on Capital Hill and travel across the Pacific Ocean in the quest to protect their honeybees.

Filming across the US, in Europe, Australia and Asia, this documentary examines the alarming disappearance of honeybees and the greater meaning it holds about the relationship between mankind and mother earth. As scientists puzzle over the cause, organic beekeepers indicate alternative reasons for this tragic loss. Conflicting options abound and after years of research, a definitive answer has not been found to this harrowing mystery.

My review

I have read articles in the past few years regarding honeybees vanishing from their hives. I don’t think I realized the seriousness of the situation and how widespread the Colony Collapse Disorder was. The Vanishing of the Bees DVD was an eye-opening documentary about the disappearance of honeybees across the world and how that impacts us now, as well as how it will impact farming and pollination in the future.

I would suggest that everyone take a look at the Vanishing of the Bees DVD and see exactly what is going on with the honeybees and how it will affect our future.

  1. When I bake my own bread (not in the summer…), I use honey in my recipe. I bet this honey would add a lot of flavor to bread!
