With over 200 species of nectar producing plants from both natural landscape and pastoral agriculture, Sardinia has produced honey since the Roman times. Honey is the main ingredient of Sardinian “Torrone” or Nougat. The signature honeys produced from the characteristic plants of the island are the famous “Miele Amaro” – Bitter honey, from the Strawberry tree (Arbutus unedo), Asphodel (Asphodelus microcarpus) and Thistle (Galactites tomentosa). The imported eucalyptus plant also produces an excellent honey.
Miele di Corbezzolo 40g, 120g & 250g - Strawberry Tree honey
Unpasteurized strawberry tree honey with a unique flavour profile that brings fruity, sweet honey flavour alongside a deeply bitter note.
This particularly Sardinian flavour of honey adds an interesting note to many dishes, and is traditionally paired with cheese and pane carasau, drizzled over fresh and crisp fruits and desserts such as seadas, a Sardinian deep-fried semolina dumpling filled with sourced pecorino cheese and lemon zest.
All our honeys are raw and unpasteurised.
