  • Description

Honeydew is not the nectar of a flower, but a sweet secretion left by aphids that live on linden, fir, and maple trees.

The aphids feed on the plant lymph, absorbing the protein and expelling the sugar. Until late into the summer, bees collect this sugar secretion and make a very special honey. It is known as “forest honey” with a rich amber to dark brown colour. It has a medium taste profile with a hint of salinity due to it being rich in mineral salts, calcium, magnesium, sodium, and potassium. It is also a source of iron and antioxidants.
