Raw Lemon Blossom Honey - 5kg
Alvaro's Raw Lemon Blossom Honey has a very light, barely there scent of mild sweetness. The foretaste of this honey is quite light with the slightest bit of sourness similar to lemon zest. The main flavour is floral and seedy, similar in some ways to a buttery sunflower honey, but without the thickness and lingering typical of that particular honey. It then leaves the mouth with a pure, sweet finish and very little aftertaste.
The mild overall flavour makes it perfect for those who are new to raw honeys or those who tend not to enjoy strong flavours.
Colour: This honey is a beautiful golden colour, which looks like warm, late afternoon sunshine when in the light.
Where does the honey come from?: This variety of oak honey comes from Rioja in Spain, a largely untouched, wild and diverse region in central to north Spain. The soil here is very rich and his hives are in a series of wild and mountainous national parks.
Who produces this honey?: This oak variety comes from Alvaro, a beekeeper with a passion for producing raw honey of the very highest quality. His honeys have a full, rich flavour typical of many products from the region.
What about the tree the honey comes from? The lemon tree is a hardy citrus tree which is dominant around the warmer climates of the world and can even grow in cooler places too. It can flower more than once per year and a stunning aroma is present whenever it is in bloom.
Common Uses: Lemon blossom honey is particularly good to use in different recipes, such as: salads, an accompaniment with cheeses, adding to shellfish and beautiful in a light herbal tea.
Lemon Blossom Honey Facts: Lemon trees produce brilliant white blossoms that the bees adore. A very light coloured honey is produced with a delicate taste quite unlike the fruit, only a hint of the taste of lemon is there, a distant tartness and a clean yet subtle citrus taste.
