A stunning savory honey, Oregano Blossom Honey is strong and intensely aromatic. With an herbal and sweet nose, it has fresh and intense flavors with notes of marjoram, herbs and pepper. We like to use this honey in savory applications. Use in glazes, marinades, sauces and reductions. To glaze a roast chicken or pork, dilute a few spoons in a cup of olive oil, lemon juice and a pinch of sea salt and white pepper until creamy. Or, drizzle over warm flat focaccia for a perfect sweet-savory snack to enjoy with a glass of wine.
Oregano is a member of Lamiaceae, the nectar-producing mint family that includes marjoram, thyme, and lavender as relatives. There are many different species of oregano but Gangi Dante’s dry rocky soil was planted with the spicy, slightly bitter Wild Oregano (Origanum vulgare). The cooperation with the bee keepers from Dolce Alveare and Gangi Dante produced the monofloral Oregano and Thyme blossom honeys which will stun even the most educated honey palate.
