Olympus Heather (Ερείκη Ολύμπου)

It is collected from heather blossom on the wild cliffs of Mount Olympus in the autumn. Heather honey is amber in color and has one of the strongest and most pungent flavors. Due to its high glucose content, it crystallizes very quickly (1-3 months after harvesting). It is fragrant and floral with a lingering after-taste that is almost bitter. It is commonly served with ham, chicken, lamb, seafood and cold dishes and goes well with strong black coffee. Prized since ancient times due to its medicinal properties, Heather honey has a high protein content in comparison with other honeys.

Specs: It is totally unheated, unpasteurized, unprocessed honey. Its mildly filtrated so as to keep small particles of pollen and wax, which enhance its taste and aroma. It comes from a single honey harvest, which means it is not a product of blending various honey batches. Weight : 280 gr net.              Order
