Jute Bag containing a 490g jar of beekeeper Thomas' Raw Thyme Honey and a box of Greek Loukoumi (Turkish Delight). Makes a lovely gift.
The aroma is mellow and caramel sweet, and the mouthfeel is thick and almost oily, similar to sunflower honey.
This particular honey is a very light sandy brown and not transparent like other varieties. It comes from the mountains on the island of Euboea on the more barren slopes of the mountains that run down the centre of the island.
It comes from bees feeding on the small flowers of the thyme plant. The thyme plant is an evergreen herb with many culinary, medicinal and ornamental uses. It tends to be found at higher altitudes as a perennial bush, it is harvested and used fresh, dried and even the oil extracted for use as a medicine.
Thyme honey is particularly good to use on the skin to exfoliate or help clear acne and blemishes. It is also very versatile, and can be used in recipes such as salads, an accompaniment with cheeses, as a glaze for meat and it's beautiful in a light herbal tea.
It is a favourite among many cultures, especially those of the Mediterranean and Middle East. The herb is widely used in cooking and traditional cures so naturally the honey is widely popular too.
Loukoumi. - please note that this product contain nuts.
In Greece, Turkish Delight, known as Loukoumi has been a very popular delicacy since the 19th century, famously produced in the city of Patras, Patrina Loukoumia. Covered in a light dusting of icing sugar this makes a lovely traditional Greek sweet treat. Thomas and his family always buy their Loukoumi from the tiny village shop in Sofades where he lives and he sent these boxes over with his honey for you to enjoy.
Please note the Loukoumi is in one of 3 different coloured boxes as per the photograph so it may be natural buff coloured, gold or light pink.
