This crystallized honey is simple but never uninteresting. When fresh, it is a light hazelnut colour which in time turns almost to toffee. Its smell is reminiscent of freshly cut grass, damp cellars and wet hay. On the tongue it is averagely sweet and lingering, with a good acidity. Its finish is characterized by mild overtones of plants and hay.

Add just before serving to polenta or semolina, to gelatine for cold meats or to legume, cereal or vegetable soups, again just before serving. This honey is also good for making soft nougat. The perfect accompaniment to fresh or semi-mature cheeses made from blended milks, or cow’s milk cheeses such as robiola and tomino.

Mieli Thun's small, family run company is renowned for its many types of single variety Italian honeys, obtained through knowing and directed nomadic beekeeping. Their ambition is to help lead a renaissance in artisanal honey-making: the quintessence of the art of gathering honey.

  • No honey should be fed to infants 12 months or younger.
