ORANGE BLOSSOM HONEY

The Italian word for honey is “miele” and it originates from the Latin word melit (sweet). For ages honey was the only concentrated sweet available food. The first traces of human built bee hives go back to VI century B.C. For thousands of years’ honey was the main sweetener used by humanity. Different types of honeys are produced by placing the beehives in close vicinity to special trees such as the Acacia, the Chestnut, the Cherry, the Orange, thus obtaining different shades of color and taste according to the blossom the bees have come in contact with. Then there is the wild flower honey, that bees produce by visiting different plants and trees.
