Organic Italian Chestnut Honey - ADA Società Agricola
Chestnut honey differs from other types of sweetener such as acacia honey for a darker color (brown and sometimes tending to black) with intense and dark shades. Even the smell is much stronger than traditional honey and is characterized by a less sweet taste with a bitter aftertaste that makes it a top quality product that can be used in different culinary contexts. Chestnut honey is also characterized by a more liquid consistency than the standards, due to the rich presence of fructose.
Properties and uses:
Chestnut honey has beneficial properties for the body and for this reason it is recommended to use it on several occasions. Chestnut honey is rich in minerals such as potassium and iron, not to mention quantities of calcium, magnesium, sodium and manganese, allies for those who need a diet rich in minerals. The two main properties of chestnut honey are anti-inflammatory and anti-bacterial, without forgetting its anti-oxidant properties. This type of honey is ideal for a diet that fights anemia (ie the lack of iron in the body). Thanks to its antispasmodic properties it is an excellent ally to fight menstrual pains, combined with relaxing herbs such as chamomile. Its soothing and healing properties make it adapted during the convalescence from ulcer, but also to naturally fight for colds, sore throats and flu symptoms.
Unlike traditional honeys, chestnut is much more bitter and has a strong and decisive flavor. Just its bitterness, however, makes it perfect for combinations with sweet and savory foods. For the more adventurous it is possible to combine chestnut honey with very aged cheeses such as Pecorino Sardo, Grana Padano or Parmigiano Reggiano, while among the meats it is possible to combine it with processed meats such as roast pork or white meats.
It is ideal to prepare the mostaccioli, some crunchy biscuits made with just a few ingredients. They appear as long and flat loaves, but the shape can vary depending on the occasion in which to serve them. It is the classic homemade recipe that every family has its own version.
Although beneficial, this food is very caloric and rich in sugar, so it should be consumed sparingly.
