Notes of apple cider, followed by grass, moss and baked apples. The flavor is mild in comparison to the fragrance, with floral notes of cardoon and artichoke. Although apple trees bloom up and down the peninsula, apple honey is a true rarity.
This honey is delicious for savory preparations, such as glazing or finishing roasts, chicken or game, and it is especially magical paired with roast pork and apples. We also enjoy it in cocktails with calvados, cider or apples.
"A noble ingredient” to be used in all culinary preparations, traditional as well as innovative.
Andrea Paternoster’s dream is to capture the unique essence of each variety of flower. A nomadic beekeeper, Andrea travels with his bees throughout Italy, carefully following the flowering seasons of dozens of different types of flowers, to produce a beautiful variety of monofloral honeys whose flavors capture the essence and uniqueness of each flower. Key to his art is being in harmony with the bees and his ability to follow the natural cycles and the myriad of blossoms as they play out along the Italian peninsula’s climatic and geographical differences.
Mieli Thun Monofloral Honeys are produced without pasteurization or additives. In this way Andrea is able to capture the pure fragrance and flavor of each flower species in the respective honey.
