Organic Fir of Vityna-Vanilla Honey

Greek honey from the mountains of Vytina in the central Peloponnese region of Greece. This rare ‘forest’ honey has a warm, woody flavor and hints of vanilla and caramel. Vytina is a little village in the mountains of central Peloponnese surrounded by enormous expanses of fir forests and pure mountain air - it is easy to confuse it with the Swiss Alps.  The bees around Vytina, in the mountains of the Peloponnese, produce a thick dark honey (the darker the honey the more anti-oxidants it has).  Different from the better known thyme honey of Greece, this is just as distinctive, delicious and nutritious.  It is raw, unheated and certified to originate purely from the fir trees in this area and to be pesticide free Rich in iron and calcium with a low total sugar content compared with flower honey.  The people of Vytina use fir honey to benefit their digestive and respiratory systems.   It is also thought to help anemia.  Complements well-aged goat cheeses. This is truly an exceptional Greek honey.
