How Mānuka Honey Can Be The Perfect Christmas Addition - PURITI

The festive season is upon us, and what better way to prepare than withPURITI Mānuka honey!? Everyone appreciates the Christmas season; it’s a sign of summer coming, holidays and cherished memories with friends and family. Mānuka honey plays the perfect role in ensuring that your Christmas is sweet, creamy and full of tasty joy! 

From giving pure monofloral Mānuka honey as a gift to glazing the Christmas ham or just enjoying it by the spoonful, the opportunities are endless. This blog is going to perfectly outline how New Zealand’s favourite and rarest honey will definitely have a seat at the table this Christmas. 

Why Is Monofloral Mānuka Honey Different To Other Varieties? 

Although Mānuka honey is renowned globally for its unique properties, there are still many who don’t understand the hype. 

This is totally understandable. Monofloral Mānuka honey is a pure variation of honey derived solely from the native Mānuka flower nectar. This rare flower only blooms during narrow windows throughout the year, so harvesting a 100% pure volume of this honey instantly makes it more valuable than most other varieties. 

Additionally, monofloral Mānuka honey is one of the few honey varieties worldwide that is required to undergo strict testing to ensure purity.There are chemical and DNA markers that are measured to receive certification from the Ministry of Primary Industries - a branch of the New Zealand Government.

Can I Glaze A Christmas Ham With Mānuka Honey? 

What better way to celebrate Christmas than drizzling New Zealand’s most famous honey over the key dinner centrepiece? Many hams are marketed as honey-glazed, but why not make your Christmas truly unique by glazing it yourself with the decadent texture of pure Mānuka honey? 

Heating corn syrup, honey and butter together will prepare an enchanting glaze for you to apply as the ham is cooking. It’s recommended to glaze the ham every 10 to 15 minutes, and then in the final 5 minutes of cooking, turn on the broiler for a glistening caramel glaze. 

Glazing ham with Mānuka honey is an excellent method to add flavour, colour and texture to baked ham. At PURITI, we believe in the luxurious aspects of enjoying New Zealand’s finest honey and believe it can make other food just as splendid. 

Can Mānuka Honey Be Used For Christmas Baking And Treats? 

Absolutely! Baking with Mānuka honey is an incredible way to introduce new flavours to your treats. You may also be surprised to hear that Mānuka honey can be used as a substitute for sugar; however, you will need to be aware of the conversions. As Mānuka honey is a liquid, it will add to the overall volume mixture. While this may sound confusing, relax knowing that there are several recipes that take this into account. SeePURITI’s Mānuka Honey Recipes page for more information on amazing treats for you to try out! 

Mānuka honey and ginger are two ingredients that set the perfect scene for Christmas. Whether in tea or in a loaf, there are several different treats that can be created using these two fragrant essences.
