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.
