Description

Antonio's Raw Organic Chestnut Honey is a deep and malty-tasting tree honey.

It has a beautiful, rich and nutty flavour, which many people adore.

This honey comes from bees feeding on sweet chestnut trees.

It is quite different from the blossom varieties which are light and subtle - this is dark and more potent. 

More on the flavour: Antonio's raw organic chestnut honey is a beautiful, deep-flavoured variety. It has slight caramel notes as well as a deep sweetness and a touch of bitterness too. The nutty flavour of the chestnut carries through as well as a taste a little similar to maple syrup but slightly more rich and malty. Chestnut can lend a bitter taste to honey but not always, it is known to be one of the most varied types of honey in taste, differing greatly from one area to another and from one season to the next.

Colour of this batch : Mid to dark brown, a slight red in the light.  Going a paler caramel colour when crystallised.

Where does the honey come from?   This variety of honey comes from the Chestnut forests at Castelo Rodrigo - Portugal.

Who produces the honey?  The bees of Antonio Simone, a 4th generation beekeeper who takes pride in producing honey in a traditional way without adding or taking away anything.

Antonio's hives are mainly based in the mountains north of Madrid. 

What about the plant the honey comes from? The sweet chestnut tree, also known as Castano in Spanish, is a large deciduous tree which produces edible nuts. The bees feed on the tree's sap and blossoms.

Common Uses: Chestnut honey is particularly good to use in different recipes, such as: cakes, cookies, desert toppings, ice creams, warm honey teas, salads and meat glazes.  Also, it is delicious poured over cheeses. This is because of the rich, nutty and malty flavour it lends.

More Chestnut Honey Facts: Chestnut honey is often higher in fructose than other types, this serves as good source of energy. Hence, a spoon of chestnut honey helps to relieve fatigue immediately.

Crystallisation:-  Please know that raw honey does crystallise and is a natural process of raw honey (therefore we cannot except returns on honey that may have crystallised). We indicate on the website the state of each honey - either runny or crystallised but be aware this is to the best of our knowledge and the state can change quickly.   If you want your honey runny and it has crystallised it's very easy to return it to runny go to this link Runny Honey  or see this section under our FAQ's Why Is My Honey Crystallised?

We only supply raw honey because we believe this is how all honey should be.  If you don't want your honey to crystallise then raw honey probably isn't for you.
