Beekeeper: Zoi Kladi
Beekeeping has a long tradition in Crete. Honey (Greek "meli"), the Minoans built Cretan bees (Greek "melissa") during the first Cretan civilization in Crete and to this day it is a tradition in Crete.
The basis of good honey is a natural flora. In Crete there is an exceptionally rich and untouched flora. Of the more than 7,000 plant species around 800 exist exclusively in Crete.
A bee flies out of the hive many kilometers to collect nectar. Beekeepers are raised by beekeepers in places with a particularly rich variety of flowers in the mountainous landscapes of Crete. Bees collect the nectar of the different flowers. During the flowering season of the thyme, the beekeepers are placed in areas of wild thyme found in the mountains of Crete. The Cretan climate allows a particularly long flowering time, and the bees mainly collect the thymiannectar. The high proportion of thyme can be detected in honey.
A TOUCH OF CRETE
The flowers, whose nectar the bees collect, determine the taste of the honey. An aromatic honey such as the Cretan, liquid and golden thyme honey can only be found here and is known and appreciated worldwide.
180 ingredients are in the honey. In addition to fruit and grape sugar and amino acids, enzymes, trace elements, vitamins and valuable antioxidants. The ratio of fruit and glucose determines whether the honey is solid or liquid.
Because of its naturally high sugar content, honey is naturally preserved and can be stored for a long time. Good, untreated honey will solidify over time as it crystallizes. It can be re-liquefied in a water bath at 30 ° C.
