For centuries Chestnut Honey has been reputed to aid digestion and boost the immune system and has been used in many traditional remedies. It is not an overly sweet honey but yet it's subtle herbal aroma and slightly bitter after taste makes it a fantastic addition to cheeses and salad dressings. Slightly varying taste, colour and texture from season to season, it is raw, natural and unpasteurized as nature intended.
