Dandelion usually blooms at the same time as the production of Rosemary Honey. Most beekeepers choose to keep their hives in the lower shrubland rather than risk the unpredictable mountain weather. This is why Dandelion Honey is difficult to find. Our hives are exposed to dandelion and wild cherry trees at the same time, which gives the honey a very sharp taste.
• Appearance : When liquid, Dandelion Honey is the colour of straw. It becomes slightly lighter upon rapid crystallisation. The presence of moisture during the rapid crystallisation process creates larger crystals.
• Smell : Intense and strong aroma that smells like crushed dandelion flowers.
• Taste : Strong, long-lasting flavour, with hints of liquorice, and a slightly bitter aftertaste.
Dandelion Honey crystallises quickly once harvested, which is why it is worked in its creamy form. It’s an excellent honey to spread on toast.
Like the dandelion plant, Dandelion Honey has few enzymes and is known for its diuretic properties.
The dandelion grows in mountain prairies and pastures with a preference for open areas and cool soil. Sometimes it can be found at an altitude of more than 2000 meters. Dandelion is very resistant to cold weather. It requires direct sunlight and thus will not be found in wooded areas or the underbrush.
