Our Chestnut Honey comes from the Piedmont region of Italy and is high in minerals and antioxidants. This smoky, leathery honey is a perfect addition to your cheese board, especially with pecorino and fresh pears or drizzle it over rustic bread with good butter for a breakfast like no other!

Natural raw honey has the seemingly magical capability of spontaneously "setting" or crystallizing. Each honey will crystallize at a different rate based on the sugar and water composition. With its wonderful texture and more concentrated flavor, we recommend crystallized honey as a delicious spread over toast! If liquid honey suits you better, simply heat a warm water bath to 100 degrees and remove the pan from the heat. Submerge your jar with the cap removed and allow to stand 20-30 minutes. It will be ready to pour again! An uncertain amount of time will pass before the honey may need de-crystallization again, and then simply repeat these steps as needed.
