Cherry Honey is an ideal sweetener for tea and herbal infusions. It is recommended as well to enrich fruit salads, soft milk creams or fresh cheese. It is a pleasant ingredient of cheesecakes and dry fruit salads, accompanying almonds, cashews and sultanas.
It is a tree characterized by a smooth bark and white flowers with yellow stamens. Wild cherry trees survive, reproduce and expand in nature thanks to bees’ activity in the ecosystems where this species lives. These fundamental pollinator insects perform pollen transport from the male part to the female part of the flower. Without them, in summer, we would not be able to harvest cherries, and in winter, we could not sweeten dry fruit salads.
