Thyme Honey 500 g
Thyme honey is harvested at the end of spring in the apiaries of the Montes de Toledo and during the summer next to the Hoces del Duratón National Park in Segovia, when we take our bees to spend a cooler summer.
It is distinguished from other honeys because its aroma is much more intense and it is impregnated with the characteristic aroma of the plant. With a very sweet flavor but at the same time delicate, which causes fascination in lovers of pure bee honey.
Botanically, the common name of thyme, which is sometimes given an adjective such as “olive tree”, “bighead”, “from San Juan”, “salsero”…), corresponds to different species, most of the genus Thymus, but others from related genera of the same family, labiatae (Lamiaceae). The most frequent species is Thymus vulgaris.
Thyme forms part of the dry and sunny thickets of the Mediterranean oak forests, in which they can be the dominant species, forming the thyme groves. In them there are usually other labiadas: rosemary, sage, lavender, cat’s tail, lavender; some herbaceous legumes: clovers, alfalfas, cornicabras…; other woody legumes such as brooms; and other plants such as reseda, rockrose, jaguarzos…
The intensity and persistence of its aromas and taste make these honeys highly appreciated by those who are attracted by strong sensations. It is ideal to combine with dishes whose ingredients also provide components with notable aromas and tastes to which you want to incorporate a sweet part and with the characteristic aromas of these honeys.
Combine with strong infusions, cured cheeses, meat stews, baked meats, or non-light desserts, always taking care not to overdo the amount used.
