Summer 2017, we went through the certification process for all of our varietal and artisanal Eastern Shore Honey. Certification by Star-K came about after weeks of emails, phone calls, and inspections of our production facilities. Currently, we have 15 varietals of honey suitable for every need and taste.
At Waxing Kara, our honey is pure, raw, and minimally filtered.
Being free from additives contributes to kosher certification. Having a Honey House that does not allow outside food in the processing area contributes to certification.
Kosher foods are designated as being milk, meat or parve. Food that is Parve does not contain milk or meat. Our honey is parve because it is not derived from milk or meat.
Honey is a central part of Judaic culture and has been since the writing of the old testament where Israel is described as the land of milk and honey. Historically, honey symbolizes strength, survival, and of course, sweetness. We couldn’t agree more!
The most popular time of the year to consume honey is the Rosh Hashanah. It is during this time of year that we dip both apples and challah (bread) into honey. It was argued that apples, a symbolic biblical fruit (think: the garden of Eden) possess healing powers and honey represents hope in a sweet new year.
A fun fact: bees themselves are not considered kosher…but their honey is! This can be a little confusing since honey comes from bees. They transport plant nectar in an extra storage stomach to carry to the hive. However, much of the process of creating honey happens within the comb itself, making the final product kosher.
Our Favorite Kosher Honey
Spring Honey is light, floral, and grassy-perfectly reminiscent of the season. Autumn Honey is earthier and rich, with a sweetness that reflects the asters, goldenrod, and daisies of the later months of the flower season.
