Meligyris - Winter Honey
Cretan woodland honey with heath is a thick, amber in colour honey, collected from the pine-tree woodlands, where wild heath flourishes. It is fragrant and floral with a very lingering after-taste that is almost bitter. It is considered to be highly nutritious, while being a natural energy boost.
Rich in vitamins and minerals, it is extremely high in protein content. That’s why it is athletes’ favorite honey.
The apiary center is located in the village Arkalohori, in the surroundings of Heraklion on the island of Crete
The Stefanakis family tradition in bee-keeping dates back to 1920. Today the team combines scientific knowledge with family tradition to offer a range of exclusive honeys.
Served as a spread on bread and pancakes with cinnamon and sesame, in tea, juices and smoothies, as a topping on yogurt and fruits, in marinades for pork meat and in salad dressings.
For a special, healthy touch, you can use it in everyday cooking to almost any recipe. In the Greek islands, it is served as a topping on Greek cheeses.
