Raw Chestnut Honey - 1kg
Ramon's raw chestnut honey is a luxurious, dark and rich honey. It has a deep malty flavour and is very sweet. Some compare it to molasses. This is one of our richest types of honey. It has a clear maltiness as well as a caramel-like flavour, which many people love. Tree honey tends to be dark, have a deeper flavour and is less likely to set due to its relatively lower glucose content.
Colour: When runny, this particular honey is dark in colour, almost black.
Where does the honey come from? This variety of chestnut honey comes from Aragon in Spain, a largely untouched, wild and diverse landscape close to the French border at the north and borders with Valencia to the south.
Who produces the honey?: This chestnut variety comes from Uncle Ramon, a friendly hip beekeeper with a passion for traditional methods of honey production. Ramon produces a wide variety of different honey, all completely raw with nothing added or taken away.
What about the tree the honey comes from?: The chestnut tree also known as Castanea or Castano in Spanish is a large deciduous tree which produces edible nuts. The bees love to feed on the sap that comes from the tree as well as the blossoms that it produces. The tree lends a beautiful and unique taste to the honey, the nutty flavour 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 considerably from one area to another.Honey Facts: Chestnut honey is higher in fructose than other types, this serves as good source of energy. Hence, a spoon of chestnut honey helps to relieve fatigue immediately.
