Griechischer Bio Tannenhonig

The Greek Fir Honey is one of the rarest products in all over the world. Its impressive pearl-amber color, the characteristic metallic highlights and its extremely thick texture make it special. It is spicy and it tastes like toffee while the flavors of the various flowers and the fir that are given off, constitute a real feast of tastes and colors. All the above characteristics combined with its natural property not to crystallize and its rich in trace elements composition, satisfy the most demanding consumers. Enjoy this distinctive type of honey that is generously offered to us by the Greek nature.

The organic Fir Honey “FASILIS” was awarded for its quality and its organoleptic characteristics in the International Competition of Organic Beekeeping “BIOLMIEL 2011”.

The organic Fir Honey “FASILIS” is collected in the fir forests of Arcadia (Mount Parnon and Mount Mainalo) in Peloponnese at an altitude grading from 800m to 1300m from early June until late July. The area of Mount Parnon and the gorge of the Monastery of Elona, where the honey is collected, are part of the Natura Network 2000. It is a European Ecological Network of areas that host natural habitats and habitats of some very important at European level species.

 After harvesting, the honey is carefully filtered and packed directly into glass jars in the modern facilities of the Fasilis family. The whole process does not exceed one month from the time of harvest. Honey is then stored in dark and dry spaces, at low temperature, ready to be released for consumption.

Crystallized honey

Honey has a natural trend to crystallize. The crystallization of honey has nothing to do with its quality. In a vase full of honey, crystals begin to form first at the bottom and then at the rest of the vase. New crystals will be added daily and that gives a non-pleasant look to the honey. Crystallization makes honey difficult to use, as well. But, crystallized honey keeps all of its properties. 

Honey reset Reset :

In case that your favorite honey crystallizes, do not worry ! On the contrary, you should be glad that you have bought an excellent honey (impure honey does not crystallize). Crystallized honey can be reset to its original state by using a moderate heated bain-marie. Just heat up the honey and it will be th same as when you bought it. One may also leave the honey vase to heat up on a heating radiator for a few minutes, it will be fine.

Honey and its properties

-A legend claims that the body of Alexander the Great was secured in a glass coffin full of honey, to be preserved until it reached the burial location. The antiseptic and antibacterial properties of honey were already known.

-Honey contains 77% to 78% sugars (mainly glucose and fructose) and has very low moisture content, so it does not favor the growth of micro-organisms.

-Honey cosuming seems to be responsible for the longevity of many famous beekeepers (80 to 100 years).
