Antonio is no longer able to produce honey, after a difficult year last year . This is the last of the Thyme honey from last year. It is more mutifloral and quite different from out new season Raw Thyme Honey
100% Raw, cold-extracted, unfiltered, dark, rich and pleasing. There are over 350 different types of Thyme. The Thyme source for most of the Thyme honey available is Thymus Vulgaris or common thyme. It yields a light amber somewhat unpleasantly medicinal flavour and is something of an acquired taste...
The Thyme honey we have sourced comes from the low, arid hills of the Central and Eastern Algarve . Locally it is called "tomilho escuro" or dark thyme. Some of the Thyme varieties of this region are so rare they only grow here and nowhere else known. One such is Thymus Lotocephalus a wild thyme, with a lavender coloured flower, which is as close to a wild lavender in appearance and scent as it is to a Thyme.
Wild Thyme grows all over the southern Mediterranean including the Algarve hills and coast of Portugal especially fragrant during the hot dry summer months.
Raw thyme honey starts out dark and runny and eventually crystallizes to a set honey with a rich and intense (and addictive) flavour.
Honey and Crystallization. If your honey is set hard, you can loosen it up by placing it in a pan of hand hot water, (and repeat as necessary) using a spoon placed in hot water first and of course storing it in a sunny/warm place in the house.
