Unusual and acquired.  Pair it with just warm crusty bread and the best extra virgin olive oil you have for an Arabian breakfast.

Mieli Thun's single flora Chestnut Honey has an aroma of dried chamomile, dominated by animal scents, tannins and quinine.  The palate reveals a bitter, slightly astringent taste, with notes of wood, moist tobacco, carob and cocoa beans.  Despite its floral origin, its parameters resemble those of honeydews (not the fruit).*   Usually crystallizes slowly and in the presence of blackberry nectar.

Pairs well with cottage or soft cheese, bloomy or washed rinds; and it exalts the sweetness of a Trentino grana cheese.

Excellent in the filling for pumpkin tortelli, to treat fatty liver or with lightly smoked foods.  Lukewarm, it provides the perfect contrast in a persimmon mousse.  Delicious blended into fresh whipped ricotta cheese.  In all dishes with hazelnuts, in starters for heritage doughs, excellent in dough for rye bread. 

Ingredient:  Italian bee honey
