Pine or Blossom honey?
Oftenly we come across people, who believe that the seperation between types of honey is narrowed to only to types, Pine honey and Blossom honey. Ofcourse this kind of seperation is for someone that knows about honey, totaly unaccurate. In our country we have a huge variety of honeys that take their names from the plant they are collected. So, when we say blossom honey we mainly refer to many honey types, some of which are famous, like the ones from erica, thyme and more.
Of course these kinds are only for few, since they are only 15% to 20% of the total production of our country. Lets see some rare honeys, that are famous in Europe and have great market value.
- Chestnut: This type is right now the most famous among small production honeys. This is because it combines a high nutritional value together with a great taste little bitter in the end.
- Erica: Erica of Autumn or Pireni as it is also called, gives honey a strong bitter taste and smells like chocolate. It has dark colour and crystallizes very fast.
- Arbutus: Is the bitterest honey of nature, that has taste similar to burned caramel. People with diabetes consume it because it has low sugar levels.
- Polycomb: Another type of honey that has a taste that is close to caramel, infused with cognak. Every year it gets more and more popular, since it is rich in folic acid that is super precious for human organism.
- Paliurus: One more blossom honey that every year has more people that like it. The well known “Tsali” or “Thorn of Jerusalem” gives a honey that has many wonderful properties.
