We will get a jar of ~ 500 g of cornelian cherry paste with honey, ie about 25 servings of 20g serving (1 tbsp = 1 serving)


Estimated cost: 1.1


  • - glass container (jar) of at least 500ml;
  • - blender that can also grind the kernels (nutribullet);


  • Cornelian Cherry with Honey Paste - Preparation step 1We wash the cornelian cherry well and drain them of the excess water;
  • Cornelian Cherry with Honey Paste - Preparation step 2We are going to mix the fruits and mix the paste formed with the honey.
    → I chose to use the cornelian cherry with all the seeds, they are healthy, but for that you have to have a strong blender that will grind your seeds well.
    → If you don't have a powerful blender, you will need to remove the pips from the fruits (when they are very ripe, they come off very easily).
    ⚠ Make sure the kernels are well mixed and there are no large chunks left to break when you eat the pasta;
    → If you are using pitted horns, add them to the blender along with the honey, and mix for ~ 10-30 seconds.
    ❗ If mixing is cumbersome, you can add up to 50ml of water to the blender to make it easier. Personally, I avoid excess water, because this way the formed paste will last longer.
    You will get a delicate paste, of a splendid, reddish color, which in addition to many beneficial effects, is an exceptional digestive stimulant.
  • In order to potentiate the properties of the forest cornelian cherry, we will leave it to macerate for at least 24 hours, after which the mixture can be consumed as such.

→ Cornus mas / Cornelian cherry / European cornel / Cornelian cherry dogwood ←

Bee honey will practically enhance the benefits and properties of forest horns.

❗ The amount of honey can be adjusted according to taste and needs;

❗ Fruits, if well ripened, break off very easily and so the seeds can be easily removed.

⚠ For diabetics, a much smaller amount of bee honey is recommended, possibly acacia honey!

⚠ If you grind the seeds, you must make sure that the blender / mixer can grind these seeds finely. Be careful not to damage your teeth if large pieces of pips remain in the paste!

Storage and shelf life: Honey horn paste must be stored in the refrigerator and recommended for consumption as soon as possible, up to 3 months.


1-3 tablespoons a day is recommended, preferably on an empty stomach, 30 minutes before meals (for better assimilation).

Cures of 14 days are recommended, with a break of 7 days between them.

⚠ Not recommended for babies!

→ For children, the version with ground nuts is not recommended.

→ Especially for the version with seeds ground, when you consume a spoonful of pasta, chew lightly, possibly hold the pasta a little under your tongue, until you feel that it dissolves easily. This way you ensure a better assimilation of the nutrients and in addition you make sure that if there are small pieces of seeds left, you will not damage your teeth ...
