Lemon honey is an artisanal honey collected from honeycombs located between lemon fields. Its origin comes from the orange blossom of the lemon tree, therefore it is a variety within the orange blossom honey.
Its collection date is usually in the months of April and May. Currently, lemon honey abounds throughout the Mediterranean area, especially in the mountains of the Valencian Community (Spain), as is the case with our honey.
Lemon honey has a very light yellow color and a soft texture. It has a sweet floral aroma characteristic of orange blossom honey, but with a final citric touch that is provided by a substance called methyl anatrilate. This sweet combination with a slight acid touch forms a very characteristic flavor that, when tasted, reminds of the lemon blossom.
Like all our honey, lemon honey La Carrasqueta, is a honey of ecological origin and is one hundred percent natural. Our pure lemon honey has not been pasteurized or handled, so it is a raw honey.
