Unpasteurized Chestnut Honey from Italy
We source our honey from the Garfagnana area (about an hour from Lucca) because it has a dense forest of chestnut trees. Luckily, the area is located far from populated cities and smog resulting in a more intense Chestnut tree blossom flavor!
In fact, bees live a healthier life in areas like Garfagnana. As a result these wonderful creatures gift us with the true tastes of an all-natural, unpasteurized, unfiltered, unheated honey.
Keep in mind that any genuine artisan honey will become a bit dense with time. Above all this indicates that it has not undergone any kind of temperature alteration and most importantly honey maintains all its natural and beneficial health properties.
Our Chestnut Honey has a pronounced flavor recommending it for use on a fresh pecorino or mild cheese.
Available in 17.6 oz or 8.8 oz jars, imported from Italy. New batch due in July of every year.
Ingredients: 100% Chestnut Honey from Chestnut Tree Blossoms – no sugar added, no additives
