If you love Oak honey then you will appreciate this very fine batch - which comes from one of the most beautiful places in Greece. This superb honey was selected as the best out of a series of Oak samples provided to us by different beekeepers.
You will find that this Raw Artisan Organic Oak honey is is a rich-tasting honeydew honey. This honey starts off quite quickly, with strong malt and caramel flavours. The high points of maple syrup combine with the richness of molasses to create a balanced overall flavour, which lingers pleasantly. The aftertaste reminds us of dried apricots and sultanas, and a light sourness can be detected for a good time after.
A rich, thick and delicious honey, high in antibacterial properties - making it perfect for when you have a sore throat or a persistent cough.
This honey works well in glazes, in warm drinks, with breakfast - spread on toast or drizzled over porridge or yoghurt and when baking.
Colour: This particular oak honey is dark brown, almost black in colour, showing a lovely amber in the light.
Where does the honey come from? This honey comes from Mount Pelion, considered one of the most beautiful mountains in Greece. The locals describe it as an area of indescribable beauty, a place which is thickly forested. Higher up the mountain you will find oak, chestnut, beech and maple. Lower down there are olive, pear, willow and apple trees. Also, you will see healing herbs such as sage, thyme and the renowned Greek mountain tea growing in abundance on the mountain. This mountain is an area of true wilderness, far from any source of pollution.
The mountain has mythological roots, being named after king Peleus, who was father to the great warrior Achilles.
Who produces this honey? Asterios is one of the most genuine people you could ever meet. His aim is always to present to us the highest quality honey possible. He is lucky enough to have an amazing network of fellow artisan Greek beekeepers. This honey is bought to you by one such beekeeper Giannis. For Asterios and Giannis beekeeping is an art and they are excited that their honey will be appreciated in the UK.
More on honeydew honey: This is a dark thick honey – it is known as a honeydew, because it is from the sap and resin of the tree not from flower nectar. Honeydews are high in oligosaccharides, which are known for their prebiotic qualities- aiding digestion.
Please know that raw honey does crystallise 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.
