Attiki Pure Raw Greek Honey (16oz)
In 594 BC, beekeeping was so widespread in and around Athens that Solon passed a law requiring beehives to be 300 feet apart. Ancient Olympic athletes ate honey and dried figs before competing to enhance their performance. From antiquity to the present day, honey has not only been a treasured sweetener, but a food infused with symbolic meaning in Greece. A symbol of fertility, good life and good fortune, honey is regularly used in family rituals like weddings and housewarmings. At Attiki, we have been making our Classic Honey since 1928, working with 2,000 beekeepers throughout Greece to find the best varieties. The winner of 4 Superior Taste Awards and 2 Great Taste Awards, our honey is derived from wildflowers, herbs, forest and thyme. The result is a raw, delicious all-natural and antioxidant-rich sweetener. Attiki Honey is much more flavorful and viscous than other honeys. Enjoy it with cheese, fresh or dried figs and crusty bread. Drizzle it over Greek yogurt, with berries and toasted slivered almonds. Or for a classic sumptuous Greek dessert, use it as a topping for Manouri Cheese.
