Miellerie Honey – Leatherwood
Honey is one of the simplest daily pleasures found in my kitchen. A spoonful can lighten almost any mood, while a dollop or a drizzle can transform the most basic of dishes into something special. Miellerie Honey is one of the best honeys I have come across. Developed by Yves Ginat on his farm in Tasmania, Yves follows strict organic and biodynamic farming principles, nurturing the bee colonies in the beautiful surrounds where the hives are located. Miellerie is extracted and packaged with temperatures never reaching above 40 degrees celsius, providing a truly raw honey full of nutrients, naturally occurring fine crystals and a wonderfully creamy texture.
The leatherwood tree is found deep in the wilderness of South-West Tasmania, an area which is world heritage listed. This Leatherwood variety is full of naturally occurring crystals and a distinct full flavour, it is a perfect everyday variety, easily spread on toast or slowly stirred into a mug full of warm milk.
