A very distinctive honey, distinguished from all other honeys in that it is not derived from the nectar of flowers but from honeydew. Honeydew is produced by insects that feed on the sap of trees (Linden, Oak, Chestnut, etc.) from which they draw their nutritive substance. The bees use the honeydew honey in large quantity, producing a honey rich in minerals that is less cloying in flavor over the more common sweet honeys. Its caramelized flavor is ideal for adding to coffee, thanks to its lower sweetening power, and is also a great match with cheese on toasted bread, natural yogurt, or a bowl of oatmeal in the morning.
