Honey with wild flowers BY THE KAMPEROS FAMILY
Beekeeper Giannis is crazy about his bees, keeping his hives in the mountain village of Skalochori. Giannis takes especially good care of his bees and allows them to roam freely in the mountains where the wild flowers blossom. This is an intensely aromatic honey with a characteristic flavour produced in abundance on Lesvos during the summer bloom. It tastes delicious in your tea, adds balance to your salad dressings or as a sweet touch in your sauce.
Honey occasionally takes on a semi-solid state known as crystallized or granulated honey. Crystallization is the natural capacity of honey and does not cause any change in the biological and nutritional value. You can melt it easily into the sinking vessel with hot water (au bain marie) without losing any of the biological and nutritional properties.
