The honey bee: original from Sumbawa
Just few days ago I got a bottle of sweet honey bee from Sumbawa, Nusa Tenggara Barat. Someone brought it for me as a gift from his hometown. Not only that, he brought a brochure that explain about how to indicate the originality of the honey bee. So, my question about how to indicate the originality of honey bee can be answered now :). Here are the criteria of the original honey bee
  • Color: vary in color.
  • Taste: sweet, rather sour or acid, sweet rather little bitter depend on nectars around the flowers that are smoked by bees. 
  • Aroma or flavor: specific flavor of honey. 
  • Ropiness or thickness: In the dry season, the honey bee will be thicker than rainy (yet, both are good). 
Then how to know that the honey is original: 
  • The flavor is a pungent smell of honey. 
  • If it is mixed with yolk, and the yolk will be half-done, when we let it for about 2-3 minutes 
  • If we shake the bottle, then there will be bubble of honey foam. 
  • When we take in for about 5 spoon of honey in to a glass with water in it and the honey will not mix into the water in the glass. 
Now, you can try it. But if you have a tips about how to know the originality of the honey bee, you can tell me :). By the way, for My friends, Samba aka Wawan, thanks a lot for the gift :). With this honey bee from Sumbawa, it will enourage my family to be naturally healthy with Indonesian Product. Proud of you, Indonesia.
