Greek Pine Honey

Prickly, piney, perfect.

Earthy, thick, slightly spicy with a toffee type of sweetness, this pine honey from the Greek island of Thassos is a rarity in the food world. Unlike most honeys, which are made by bees from the nectar they collect from flowers, this pine honey is a "honeydew" honey. A sweet, sticky sap drips from the pine trees, and another insect eats it. That insect then secretes the "honeydew," which the bees gather and turn into honey.
 
It makes for a darker, complex honey that tastes as much of the aromatic pine forest as it does sweet. Incredible stuff.
