Bright and delicate, this citrus honey from Le Querce is a sunny taste of spring in southern Italy. Harvested from orange and clementine trees in Puglia, Calabria, and Sicily between March and May, it is fragrant with the distinctive floral aroma of orange blossom.

While we may think of honey as one basic flavor, the passionate bee experts at Le Querce are on a mission to showcase the wide spectrum of honeys, each as distinct as the flower it comes from. Flavors can range from spicy and dark to floral, roasty, and even bitter—all in addition to sweet, of course! Their Nettari line contains more than a dozen monofloral honeys, each collected from a single flower type.

In 1998, Giuseppe Perino turned his passion for beekeeping into a conscientious, nature-first business. Based in the lush valley of the Anfiteatro Morenico in the northwestern Piedmont region, the family-run Le Querce now specializes in all things bee-related, from honey to pollen, royal jelly, and incredible sweets. They run the company according to practices that reflect their love and respect for nature: nomadic beekeeping, organic production methods, and honoring and protecting the biodiversity of their home. They work with like-minded farmers around Italy and France to source honeys that showcase the incredible breadth of flavors of the countryside.
Citrus honey is light, floral, and mildly fruity, with a mellow sweetness and mild acidity. This smooth, creamy honey is naturally crystallized, resulting in a thick, luscious spread. Use it to sweeten hot, iced, and herbal teas or light gin- or vodka-based cocktails. It works especially well in baking and other sweet recipes; use it to flavor whipped cream, pies, pancakes, and biscuits. Try it in marinades and vinaigrettes for a sweet complement to lemon juice or other citrus flavors. For a pourable honey, heat gently just until it liquifies—too much heat will destroy its unique flavor compounds.
