Add Brazilian flavour and honey to your World Cup BBQ

Jo Alves-Attree is a friend of Ogilvy’s and, as a Brazilian who is enjoying the World Cup,Brazilian-Plateau-Jar would like to share a traditional Brazilian marinade which is great with pork. Jo is from Pernambuco, a state in Brazil situated in the North East of the country. Recife is the capital and Caruaru the most developed city after Recife. Pernambuco is known for it’s sugar cane, beautiful sandy beaches and palm trees. Brazilian’s use honey a lot in their cooking and Ogilvy’s Brazilian Plateau is perfect for marinades and drizzling.

For a BBQ in Brazil, lunch, dinner, weekday or weekend Jo suggests you try this delicious marinade for pork ribs, steaks or chops.

Serves 2 people

One glass of white wine

One tablespoon of Dijon mustard

Two tablespoons of Brazilian Plateau honey

Salt and pepper

Mix the ingredients for the marinade and add the pork, leave for 4 hours for the flavours to infuse. Put the meat in the oven or on the BBQ and cook until it is soft and golden, keep brushing the meat with the marinade and juice. If necessary add more honey, it is delicious!!

For afters, grilled cheese of your choice drizzled with Brazilian Plateau honey.

Enjoy!!

 

 

 

Honey with benefits, Ogilvy’s Balkan Black Locust low GI honey, the natural sweetener

100% pure cold pressed artisan honey found in the South East regions of Serbia. This mono-floral honey is produced by bees feeding exclusively on the draping white flowers of the indigenous black locust tree to produce a lovely pale, shiny honey with a delicate light flavour, which is mild in strength.

Balkan Black Locust

Balkan Black Locust honey scores 32 on the glycemic index, this low GI rating can contribute to more stable blood sugar levels as the fructose is turned into glucose in the liver to fuel the body, this in turn allows the body to burn more fat and therefore can contribute to weight loss as part of your diet.

 

This pure natural honey also contains small amounts of antioxidants, vitamins, minerals and amino acids making it more nutritious than refined sugar whilst also helping to boost immunity. This makes Balkan Black Locust the perfect sugar substitute and an ideal natural sweetener for tea and coffee.

 

Balkan Black Locust honey with its low GI score can also help with physical activity. One tablespoon of honey before exercise can help to prevent muscle fatigue. The glucose produced in the liver can help to provide immediate energy whilst the fructose helps to maintain energy because it is absorbed more slowly. After exercise a tablespoon of honey in green or black tea can benefit energy levels, help to burn fat and therefore contribute to weight loss.

 

To sum up the purity of Balkan Black Locust honey can help to contribute to a healthy lifestyle, tastes delicious and is good for you!
