There is a story behind this honey. Over the years I have been offered many samples of Sidr but when tested none of them have proved genuine. Last Summer I visited Thomas and another beekeeper Asterios, who lives right in the east of Greece in a very wild and underpopulated area. 

Asrerios drove me maybe three miles deep into a wild forest. We came upon a clearing surrounded by Lote (Sidr) Trees, where his hives are. Here the bees collect the rich nectar from the yellow flowers in the late Spring.

Asterios had sold all his last year, but he promised me that he would save some this year.

However, this year has not been a good one for honey. Spring was very wet and the bees do not like the wet, so they stay indoors.  This usually results in honey that is more mixed. So we have not been able to get any monofloral Sidr. However, we have Sidr with spring blossom from the forest.  Much of this is from Broom, which produces a very nice antibacterial honey.

Asterios' Raw Greek Sidr & Spring Blossom honey, is a thick honey with a rich, lavish and herbal sweet taste. It is very pleasant with a slightly sour and tangy aftertaste. It is not like dark tree honeys such as Oak or Chestnut.

The bees feed on the lavish nectar that this tree produces for a short period in the late Spring producing this legendary honey.

Colour: It has a strong burnt orange colour when runny, turning a creamy, buttery yellow when crystallised.

Where it comes from: This Sidr comes from isolated forests that stretch for miles in the north of Greece.  

More on this honey: Sidr Honey is among the finest variants of honey in the world. It comes with a distinctive taste, and is known for its antibacterial qualities. This honey is considered sacred in many religions.

About the beekeeper: It was brought to us by Asterios, who lives in a very wild area of Greece. His hives are situated deep in the forest, miles from places where pesticides, herbicides and fungicides. Asterios is preparing for organic certification and follows organic principles. 

Please know that raw honey does crystalise and this is a natural process that occurs mainly due to the natural glucose in raw honey. For more information on why honey sets visit this article and for a more scientific explanation go to wikipedia.
