    Carob Tree Honey, made in Ragusa in October and November, is a rare honey very difficult to produce as it is a winter honey. Its main characteristic is the particular fragrance which recalls the carob tree fruit. The taste also is very particular and inebriating. Thanks to its creamy consistancy, it is delicious to enjoy alone, dissolving it slowly in your mouth. At liquid state it is quite dark, but it becomes clearer, almost hazel, while cristallizing. 
    As the whole range of Carlo Amodeo honeys, in order that the Carob Tree Honey keeps longer all its properties, it is extracted from the honeycombs drawn from the areas of flowering every 7 days to avoid oxidation at high temperatures, immediately centrifuged, decanted, put into jars and placed in cold storage at 4 degrees.

    The Carlo Amodeo beekeeping has a production of the finest and typical Sicilian honeys that borns from the native Sicilian bee, the Black Bee (Sicilian Apis mellifera). Defined black for its dark color, the Sicilian bee stands out thanks to some important features such as productivity and precocity. Moreover, the Sicilian Bee has reduced honey consumption and has a very strong ability to develop even starting from small nucleus.

    The Sicilian Black Bee is a "Slow Food" presidium.

    Amodeo Carlo Honey on Sale

    The Company Carlo Amodeo arises from the passion for honey and the world of bees. The company counts 1500 hives and it is structured in three laboratories: one is used for the storage of the supers which arrive from the different flowering areas, and also for the procedure of honey extraction and packaging of final products; a second laboratory is a sort of warehouse where hives are stored; the third one is most recent and its roof, covered with solar panels, produces the necessary energy to power  the refrigerator cell where the pots filled with honey are stored.
    The Company Carlo Amodeo is situated in the country, near the slopes of San Calogero park, while the apiares are located thoughout Sicily. This is due to the fact that the company produces monofloral honeys and for this reason it is necessary to find large stretches of flowers of the same species.

    Since 2008, thanks to Carlo Amodeo, a Slow Food Presidium has been started, in order to focus people's attention on the risk of extinction of the Apis mellifera siciliana (Black Bee), Sicilian native species. The sicilian bee risked the total extinction in the 70s, but fortunately, thanks to the studies and researches of the sicilian entomologist Pietro Genduso, the species has been saved. Pietro Genduso transmitted his passion to its pupil, Carlo Amodeo, who nowadays is the only breeder of sicilian queen bees and he is also enrolled in the national register.
    Negli anni successivi al 2008 altri apicoltori si sono interessati a questa razza ed Staring from 2008 other beekeepers have taken interest in this species, and now the Presidium is composed of eight breeders who recovered the queen bees from Carlo Amodeo.
