Miel Factory has selected for you this fir honey or honeydew harvested in France, in the preserved forests of the Vosges, in the Rochesson area at an altitude of 800 m. The Vosges region is the preferred territory for harvesting French fir honey.
This fir honey with its liquid texture and slow crystallization has aromas typical of large coniferous forests. A great classic. The real name of fir honey is "fir honeydew" because fir does not secrete nectar to bees. The bee forages on the suckers of sweet matter from small insects. These feed on the nitrogenous matter contained in the sap of the tree and reject the sugary matter which cannot be digested. These exudates are taken up by the bees and transformed to make honeydew honey.
This fir honey selected by Miel Factory offers flavors of character with hints of resin. Its slightly malty taste makes it easy to recognize. The high fructose content keeps it liquid for quite a long time. Its crystallization is fine and its ocher color darkens over time. It is recommended on a good toast of bread, in tea or coffee and to caramelize chicken or duck. It is the winter honey par excellence, of great typicality.
