Prickly Box Soft Set

Also known as Christmas bush, this is a native shrub which produces delicate white flowers in December. It is a honey very high in glucose hence is candies quickly. Our soft set process of a gentle stir with a paddle breaks up the chains of crystals so they don’t reform into a solid state and creates this thick soft creamy texture. Its flavour is a little like butterscotch, sweet with a distinctive aroma. Wonderful spread on toast or crumpets for a lovely afternoon snack.
