The fir honeydew is produced both on spruces (typical of the Alps) and on silver firs (common in the Apennines). While in Italy light honeys tend to be preferred, in many Northern European countries, such as Germany, fir honeydew is considered the best honey. It has a dark color with greenish reflections. It is highly appreciated for its balsamic and resin scent and for its aromatic note. The flavor is less sweet than other honeys, with a medium intensity and very persistent aroma. Fir honeydew remains liquid for a very long time. It is to be considered a fairly rare honey as production is often erratic due to adverse weather conditions. Fir honeydew is particularly rich in mineral salts. Fragrance: balsamic, aromatic, woody, resin, slightly smoky. Flavor: slightly sweet, of malt, condensed milk, panna cotta, caramel.
Excellent as table honey spread on ebony black bread. It goes well with fontina and more aged cheeses or accompanied by a slice of lard.
Keep in a cool, dry and protected from light place.
