Thanks to its large area of lavender fields, the county of Sault is an important producer of this honey with its unequalled taste, which is very much appreciated by the consumers.
Lavender honey is aromatic, subtle, with a light color between ivory white and yellow. Its texture is smooth and can be fluid or more creamy. It is collected from July to October.
In addition to being tasty, this honey has medicinal, antiseptic and anti-inflammatory qualities.
A little story: to produce 1 kg of honey, the bees of one colony travel between 24,000 and 50,000 km.
You may find lavender honey on weekly markets, shops, by producers and lavender farms.
