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.

Where does the honey come from?  This variety of chestnut honey comes from the mountains around Burgos in northern-central Spain.

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. His beekeeping practices and the land he has his hives on have been certified as organic by the Committee of Organic Agriculture in 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.

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.

Tasty Honey

This is a delicious sweet honey which is not sickly sweet. It goes with everything and I can't resist eating it out of the jar as well. I used half a jar in a week so I am glad I ordered 2 jars. I looked on the website and it has sold out, so others have discovered how nice it is as well.
