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
