Rhododendron, Raspberry, Linden, and Thyme are just some of the flowers growing in the alpine regions where this honey is harvested. Delicious with greek yogurt and alpine cheeses.
The different nectars that go into this “meditative” honey; rhododendron, raspberry, linden and thyme, give it an amber color, sometimes darkened by the presence of melata. honeys are ‘children of the flowers’, and they reveal the botanical makeup of their place of provenance like digital snapshots. mountain honey is often reminiscent of the aroma of boiled cardoon stems or artichokes, an elegant and pronounced scent, headed by quinine and rhubarb; scarcely sweet, it has a long, fresh and vaguely mentholated finish, which, with great harmony, closes the circle of the senses summoned.
In preparations of stock for cooking game, added to cooking water for vegetables like spinach, chard and asparagus. excellent in natural yogurt, fruit salads and smoothies.
A splendid addition to vegetables prepared with delicate spices, just before serving, and with greek yogurt, it is particularly suited for pairings with mountain milk products, so first and foremost the aged cheeses from high altitude pastures.
