Paola Calciolari makes her exceptional mostardas by sourcing locally harvested fruit, slicing and candying them in their juices, and then adding drops of a very concentrated, spicy mustard oil; it is a highly labor intensive process. Unlike many whole mustard fruits on the market, these are extraordinarily fresh, flavorful and chunky.
Our beekeepers pride themselves on producing only the highest quality honey that is not heated or filtered so all the goodness remains. This is a unique combination of local raw honey with a dash of oil of Mastiha. Mastiha, the resin from the Mastic tree, adds a pleasant herbal, pine aroma to the honey. Use it in a vinaigrette or mixed with lemonade.100% Greek Honey with Mastic oil. All natural, not heated or filtered. Pleasant herbal, pine aroma with sweet honey.
Beekeepers may remove the entire honeycomb to harvest honey. Honey bees consume about 8.4 lb (3.8 kg) of honey to secrete 1 lb (454 g) of wax, so it makes economic sense to return the wax to the hive after harvesting the honey. The structure of the comb may be left basically intact when honey is extracted from it by uncapping and spinning in a centrifugal machine—the honey extractor. If the honeycomb is too worn out, the wax can be reused in a number of ways, including making sheets of comb foundation with hexagonal pattern. Such foundation sheets allow the bees to build the comb with less effort, and the hexagonal pattern of worker-sized cell bases discourages the bees from building the larger drone cells.Artificial honeycomb foundation plate in which bees have already completed some cells
Our beekeepers pride themselves on producing only the highest quality honey that is not heated or filtered so all the goodness remains. Imagine the combination of the pleasant sweetness of honey with the roundness of a hazelnut cream? The experiment was carried out by 776 Deluxe and the result is this unique Honey with Hazelnut Cream–a new concept of dessert spread. This innovative spread is a blend of 77% honey and 23% hazelnut paste which creates a sweet, nutty, and flavorful treat.
