Castagno Honey by Il Forteto
Contrary to what many people think, a honey's color, consistency, and flavor do not derive from the bee, but from the source of the nectar. Some flowers produce nectar that creates a darker and stronger flavored honey, while others yield a lighter and more delicate recipe. There are hundreds of different honeys throughout the world, most of them named for the flower from which they originate.

Castagno (Chestnut) Honey is smooth, creamy, dark and rich, with the woodsy undertone of chestnuts. Although honey is the sweetest of foods, chestnut honey has an earthy, semi-sweet essence that is very sensuous. Italians spread it over Gorgonzola melted on bread, but it is also an excellent choice as a glaze for sautéed chicken breasts or baked acorn squash.

  • No honey should be fed to infants 12 months or younger.
