From Andrea Paternoster at Mieli Thun -- the joy of Orange Blossom Honey.

Mieli Thun Italian Orange Blossom Honey: The flavor is sweet, the honey is light, and the texture is creamy. It is a wonderful sweetener for tea -- or breakfast breads. An ideal glaze for carrots and poultry.

Have you ever wondered about how various honeys come to be? Andrea, an apiarist, travels with the bees. Together they travel to the south to gather nectar from orange blossoms, and to the north, to Tuscany, to gather nectar from the flowers of chestnut trees. 

Throughout Italy, honey is used in every region, and the production and classification is taken as seriously as with cheese and olive oil. Artisanal honey is a rare find in the U.S.

Italian honey is classified and labeled according to origin, variety of blossom, or method of extraction. The flavor and aroma of honey is specific to the variety of flora from which the nectar is gathered by the bees. As with wine and olive oil, the terroir also matters as the soil composition, climate, air quality and time of harvest impact the flavors, fructose levels, and consistency of the honey.

Orange Blossom. The flavor is sweet and the honey is light. It is a wonderful sweetener for tea.

A bright idea? Andrea suggested blending Arancia honey with a bit of lemon juice and olive oil as the perfect dip for raw vegetables!

Honey should not be fed to children under one year of age.
