Made from nectar harvested from cultivated coriander plants on the Adriatic coast of the Marche and Umbria, this honey is moderately sweet and verdant with notes of grass, lime zest and a hint of coconut. Anyone that loves the chew of honeycomb will appreciate Coriander Blossom Honey’s thick, waxy texture.
This honey’s restrained sweetness makes it a great choice when cooking savory dishes. Mix Coriander Blossom Honey with vinegar and spices to make a glaze for pork tenderloin, add it to pan drippings of roast chicken along with fresh minced thyme, or use it to balance marinades.
About the producer
Giorgio Poeta discovered his passion for beekeeping as a teen. The son of two farmers, he earned multiple degrees in agriculture before starting to produce honey in the Italian region of the Marche in 2004. First and foremost, Poeta sees himself not as a honey producer, but as a steward of the land focused on the health and well-being of the bees and their surrounding habitat. Poeta practices what’s referred to as nomadic beekeeping, an approach where hives are constantly moving to various flower-rich environments far from pesticides and intensive farming. This unique method provides the bees with an ever-changing selection of flowers and consequently, a diverse variety of honeys with distinct terroir-driven flavors.
