Greek raw pine tree honey from Crete is a scrumptious honey with the most amazing consistency, and which rarely crystallises due to its low fruit sugar content. Caramelly in texture, with a fresh taste which makes it ideal for eating neat off the spoon! Delicious with Greek yogurt, ice creams, other desserts, toast or sauces, and added to hot drinks. Pine honey is rich in natural antimicrobials and antioxidants and has a lower Glycemic index than most flower honeys so is better for dieters and diabetics than other honeys. All our honeys are raw, unfiltered and unheated.
This raw Cretan Pine honey is produced by a bee keeping family in the mountains south of Agios Nikolaous. The bee hives are left in the dense Pine forests in the middle of the island at high altitude. The bees feed on the resin of the trees, producing a honey which has a lower sugar content than most other honeys which are made from flowers.
