Bee Family lime blossom honey comes from Slovenia, where the mother of all lime trees is standing. It is 770 years old and with a trunk diameter of 12.5 meters. Furthermore, Sultan Süleyman, the greatest leader of the Ottoman Empire, is said to be buried under a linden tree and the Teutons worshiped the sacred “Freya lime trees” as the seat of good spirits which should bring love, happiness, fertility and a good home.
Many myths and legends entwine around the lime blossom trees, as well as the lime blossom honey. Heavy flowing, yellow-green, mildly aromatic, with a subtle hint of menthol and a light coolness on the tongue, fine-sweet in the taste, the Bee Family lime blossom honey stands out from other kinds of honey. And here’s a very special recipe for a special dinner: whisk milk, cream, lime blossom honey, and eggs without frothy.
