Giorgio Poeta’s Chestnut Honey contains the purest nectar from the flowers of Chestnut trees and other plant species, in minority quantities, from the hilly hinterland of the Marche region. The Chestnut is a large tree that can reach heights of up to 40 meters, of which the Umbria-Marches Apennines are teeming.
Chestnut honey remains liquid and does not crystallize for at least two years after harvest. It has a beautiful amber color tending to dark tones.
On the nose it is intense and pungent-some compare it to the smell of wood impregnated with bituminous materials, hence spicy and wild.
To the taste it is astringent, bitter in the finish and decidedly not very sweet, unlike typical honey.
It is precisely these “extreme” characteristics that make chestnut honey so pleasant and appealing.
Given its pronounced bitterness, we recommend you try it with cheeses endowed with almost sweet notes, such as those made from cow’s milk; we also like it used as a sweetener in good coffee, precisely because of its combination with the bitter notes of roasted coffee beans. It is the best possible honey to use in cooking, such as for lacquering roasts.
INGREDIENTS AND BENEFITS
INGREDIENTS: Chestnut honey
Honey from artisan beekeepers is perhaps one of the most natural foods you can find commercially. However, it is essential to know where the honey comes from when you buy it, because scams, harmful to your health, are just around the corner. How can you be sure of the origin of the honey you buy? Simple, you’ll just favor honeys from small producers who put their faces to it and work with respect for bees and the environment, rather than honey whose origin and composition is not well specified.
Honey is a food rich in carbohydrates that can be immediately used by our bodies to produce energy, and is therefore particularly suitable for athletes and young people, who need a lot of energy. It also contains many minerals and natural antioxidants, which help our bodies stay healthy and prevent cell aging.
Finally, contrary to what one might think, honey compared to sugar, in addition to being a much more natural sweetener, has a lower glycemic index.Therefore, honey should be favored over sugar, both from the nutritional aspect and, of course, from the aspect of taste.
We receive your order, prepare it and ship it in 24/36 hours.
We are aware that excellent products need excellent packaging and at the same time we cannot risk damaging in any way the precious Italian culinary jewels: for this reason our warehouse is equipped with temperature and lighting ideal for food preservation and the most delicate ones (cheeses, cold cuts and craft beers) are stored inside cold rooms. During shipping, on the other hand, each product is protected with the packaging most appropriate to its characteristics.
Cheeses and cured meats, which despite being aged require special care, travel accompanied by a special slow-release gel ice inside isothermal bags: in this way freshness is preserved until the goods arrive at your home.
For our craft beers, which are unpasteurized and therefore more sensitive to high temperatures than normal, we use special isothermal bubble wrap, which can ensure that the accumulated cold is maintained for the shipping time while protecting the bottles from shocks.
To secure the precious bottles of Italian wine, we have equipped ourselves with special inflatable bags, designed solely for the purpose of immobilizing and protecting this product inside the box.
For jars containing a thousand Italian goodnesses, we use special protective bubble wrap liners.
