Honey as you may well know is a sweet and viscous fluid produced by honey bees and constitutes concentrated flower nectar. Bees gather nectar that is originally thin as water but thickens once ferments are added to it, stored in combs for farther evaporation of redundant water. When the nectar is thick enough, bees cap it over and keep it to winter consumption. Since different sorts of flowers bloom in different places and different seasons, production of one pound of honey takes about 55,000 miles of flying and tapping of 2 million blossoms.
Georgia's Natural Mountain Multiflower Honey is produced in highlands of Georgia, where honey plants grow in abundance giving the honey its excellent fragrance and taste. In a way, Georgian bees top the list of the domesticated ones longest that have the proboscis making them capable of collecting nectar from more varieties of flowers. And they are the most placid as well.
Georgia's Natural Honey contains up to 80% glucose, fructose and sucrose, vitamins B1, B2, B6, E, K and C, as well as provitamin A-carotene and folic acid. Every flower adds to the honey its own set of antioxidant nutrition.
Thanks to its unique makeup and complex processing honey can be preserved for quite a time. It is easily digestible even after having been kept for long. Since honey has an ability of absorbing smells, it would be wise to keep it well-sealed. As per modern recommendations, Georgia's Natural Honey is packed in glass jars. Best keeping temperature ranges from +4 to -10°C. Packed honey can be well peserved after decades of storage, but generally speaking it is not recommended to keep this product for more than 2-3 years.
Being one of the oldest traditional occupations that local farmers pursued, beekeeping has the long history in Georgia. Every Georgian family has to serve Gozinaki for Christmas and New Year's Eve celebrations. Gozinaki is a confection of caramelized walnuts fried in honey. This snack is made exclusively for these special occasions, when Georgians propose to each other traditional toasts that literally can be translated as: "wish you long and sweet life to be as sweet as Gozinaki is."
We would like to propose the same toast to you!
