Raw organic chestnut honey
1. Characteristics of Organic Chestnut Honey from Rancho Cortesano
Chestnut honey has an amber colour, with darker tones if it has myelates or reddish tones if it has heathers.
a) New Harvest
The chestnut honey is harvested in summer. The harvest is homogeneous over time although it is negatively affected by the great heat and is favored by the morning dew.
This honey has a characteristic aroma and smell of dry wood, less persistent and intense than that of eucalyptus honey. When tasting it you can appreciate its sweet taste, with salty notes. You can also find some bitter notes in it, if it has some heather or acidic notes from carrying some brambles.
This honey takes several months to crystallize and it does so in a thick way.
Like all honey, thyme honey has a great antiseptic capacity and is recommended for the prevention and treatment of respiratory and digestive diseases, as well as inflammatory respiratory diseases, whooping cough and asthma. It also regulates artery tension and is very suitable as a tonic for fatigue and asthenia… in addition to being rich in iron, copper and boron.
Chestnut honey goes well with coffee and baked meat
