Apimondia 2019: Taste the honey!

Apimondia 2019: Taste the honey!

Apimondia has honey. There are probably some serious honey trades going on among the world’s buyers and sellers visiting Montreal. The rest of us are getting small tastes of Slovenian acacia, Alberta white alfalfa, Chilean ulmo, Chinese jujube, and Argentine organic Yunga. I once dreamt of taking a self-guided honey-connoisseur tour of the world. I only had to go as far as Montreal – the honeys came to me.

Here are a few pictures:

Brazil – world’s largest organic honey producer. Very lovely. Supermel.

Scandia Honey Company, Alberta, Canada.
Family-run producers of some of the world’s best honey.
This is Tique.
Her parents run thousands of hives.

This is a very classy gift.
A brief-case full of fine honey from the United Arab Emirates.

Chilean honeys, including bacteria-fighting Ulmo.

Mongolian mountain and hill honey. Why not?

The Australian jelly bush is related to manuka. Its honey, produced on the east coast of Oz, has the same antibiotic properties but without as much hype and drama.

Yunga honey, from the northwest mountains of Argentina. I chatted with the brothers who manage thousands of pristine acres, just for organic honey.
