Honey

Always present since prehistoric times, honey is mentioned in lots of ancient and modern literature works. In fact, it is mentioned in Hammurabi’s Code, as food of the Gods in ancient Greece, as food and condiment in Roman times and as an excellent unguent for other peoples. Massive quantities of honey are harvested in the Abruzzo region, specifically in the village of Tornareccio, with the technique of nomadism: farmers and swarms move from one place to another seeking for the best plantations, in order to harvest a wide quantity and variety of monofloral honey. More than ten types of honey are harvested: the typical ones from Abruzzo are Acacia, Sainfoin, Savory and Multi-flower. All the others, such as Orange, Chestnut, Cherry, Coriander, Eucalyptus, Sunflower and Jerusalem Thorn, are harvested in the nearby regions.
