Wild provencal flowers make for a complex flavor that should be the inspiration for a sublime sauce or glaze. It might just as well inspire all hedonists to take to it with a great, big spoon.
about the producer
This all-natural honey is culled from the apiaries of the Jean-Pierre Berger, a nomadic beekeeper in Provence. He makes his home in Cabrières d'Avignon, about 30 kilometers to the south east of Avignon, but you might just as well say that is home is all of Provence.
Jean Pierre offers a range of honeys with a fine, soft crystallization and a superior flavor. His honey is harvested in a region that is far from industrial centers, and from highways. He lodges his bee colonies individually in hives, and they are periodically moved according to the weather and pollination patterns in a particular year.
He gathers his honey through the use of a centrifuge at an ambient temperature, without any heating. The only other processing is simple decantation in stainless steel colanders. This ensures the presence of a large number of grains of pollen in suspension in the honey - proof to its authenticity, and this also contributes to the characteristic taste.
