Pure carob honey

Pure carob honey is a rarity. Harvested in Autumn, it is dark amber in colour and has a creamy consistency that melts slowly in your mouth, with flavours that remind of chocolate. Maybe it’s destiny that such a rare and precious honey comes from the carob tree: the seed pods are of uniform size and weight, and Arab jewellers used to apply them to control the weight of precious stones. This is why the English word “carat” comes from the word “quirat”, the Arab word for seed.

Mr. Agosta’s carob honey is the perfect accompaniment to the Tomino cheese by Amaltea, but it’s also great as it is on a piece of lightly toasted bread.
