Miel Factory invites you to savor its Fir honey. This liquid honey is a classic.
Fir honey should more accurately be referred to as ‘fir honeydew’. Indeed, pine trees do not produce nectar for bees. Instead, bees will collect the sweet productions of insects within a forest. These insects feed on the nitrogenous substances contained in the sap of the tree and reject the sweet substances that they cannot digest. These exudates are taken up by bees and processed into honeydew honey.
This product has both a liquid texture and a slow crystallization time. Pine honey has the typical scent of a large coniferous forests. It offers flavors of character and scents of resin. Its bold taste makes it easy to recognize. Additionally, its important fructose content keeps it liquid for a long time. This ocher colored honey is particularly recommended on a good slice of bread, in tea, coffee and to caramelize a chicken or duck.
