ARTISAN Orange Blossom HONEY FROM MIELI THUN
Mieli Thun from Italy is definitely one of the very best producers of the purest honeys in the world.
Andrea Paternoster, beekeeper in third generation for nomadic bees produces unique artisan, monofloral honeys without any artificial additives. As each plant and flower develops better in a given territory, depending on the climate, the soil composition and the geology of the land, and also grows in a specific area and season, Andrea travels every year all over the Italian peninsula to at least 60 different locations to let his bees, who are loyal to a kind of flower, collect nectar from a single kind of blossom. Andrea respects the life cycle of his bees and travels during night time when the hive is asleep. Moreover, a part of the produced honey remains with the bees.
The Orange Blossom Honey from orange trees that grow in the beautiful South of Italy has a pale orange color and a thick and smooth texture. Orange blossom fragrance along with notes of fresh flowers, honeysuckle, hawthorn and ripe yellow melon define this honey.
The flowering of the Orange Trees time is between March and May.
The characteristic acidity and the flower notes give a strong vocation to the pastry: wheat meals, fried pasta and citrus fruits. indicated in savory combinations with omelettes of flowers or spring vegetables. And of course, for breakfast on fresh baked bread. Use it together with our Extra Virgin Olive Oil and fresh lemon for salads and vegetable dips and on raw fish.
Do not feed honey to children under one year of age!
