Organic Heather Honey

The Heather Honey (sousoura) is a product of great nutritional value and that is why it is extremely suitable for the stimulation of our organism. It has the distinctive full flavor of a bitter candy and it encloses all the intense earthy scents of the heather flowers. Its special red-bronze color is turned into a wonderful caramel color after its crystallization which is carried out too quickly (1-3 months after harvesting). The Heather Honey is among the elite of the Greek honeys and it is especially preferred by demanding consumers.

The Heather Honey is collected from the nectar dews of the autumn heather which is known as “sousoura”-(Erica verticillata), from the gorges and the green slopes of Mount Parnon (Arcadia) in the Southeastern Peloponnese at an altitude ranging from 200m – 800m from early October until late November. The production is unpredictable of course because it depends on the weather conditions.

The organic Heather Honey “FASILIS” was given the first award in its category in the International Competition of Organic Beekeeping “BIOLMIEL” for two years in a row (2010 – 2011).

The area of Mount Parnon and the gorge of Leonidio (Monastery of Elona), where the honey is collected, are part of the Network Nature 2000. It is a European Ecological Network of areas that host natural 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. Arkadia

Crystallized honeyHoney 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).
