Orange Blossom Honey

(Mieli Thun) - 8.5 oz

Mieli Thun Orange Blossom Honey is extracted in the area of Matera-Basilicata. Produced in April, it is a fragrant and delicately fruity honey. It is clear colored honey varying from straw yellow to white or light beige if crystallized. With time, the honey will take on a slightly acidic tone to it and crystallize into variable sized grains. In 1992, Andrea Paternoster took over the family business from his grandfather with much determination and passion to expand the business and the honey catchment areas beyond the Trentino region. Andrea's dream is to capture the unique essence of each variety of flower in a series of single-blossom honeys. Taking his bees with him, he travels all over Italy following the flowering seasons of dozens of different types of flowers. Andrea told us that his art is about being in harmony with his bees and having a skill for timing and sensitivity. But the skill goes into the extraction of the honey, which is all done without pasteurization or any additives. Each varietal of honey is special as the fragrance and flavor of each flower species is captured in the honey.
