If there was only one honey I could use everyday for the rest of my life it might just be this one. This lovely dark, rich, smooth as silk honey is just unbelievably more-ish. It is subtle, slightly herbaceous, has a luxurious mouthfeel and has a very mild sweetness. It also has powerful healing properties for internal digestion complaints as well as mouth ulcers.
Like our Raw Vanilla Fir honey and Raw Pine Honey and Serra da Estrela Mountain (Oak) honey, this Raw Greek Red Fir honey is a honeydew. Honeydews are made by bees foraging on the secretions of insects that live off the sap of the trees. They contain a large percentage of long chain sugar molecules called Oligosaccharides. Fructose is a shorter chain molecule which crystallizes quicker and Glucose is the smallest sugar molecule and crystallizes quickest (think Raw sunflower honey), Nectar honeys are usually characterized by the presence of Glucose and Fructose in varying proportions.
This Raw Red Fir honey comes from the mountains of central Greece and is produced by Vaggelis, a young gifted beekeeper and entrepreneur who has been beekeeping since he was a teenager.
These honey would make a beautiful gift to any discerning honey lover.
