Johannesbroodboomhoning van Zwarte Siciliaanse bijen 250 gr Apicoltura Amodeo Carlo
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.
