Izoguern Wild Thyme Honey comes from a single species of thyme that grows wild in a small area called douiret that includes wild forests such as Ain Maagel and Khadraoui located in Tataouine, south of tunisia. Exists in this area of centuries now, from December to March of each year the wild forest in the region are a mass of vivid purple thyme flowers and the air is filled with the amazing fragrance given off by this herb. At this period of years, We produce most of Izogurn Wild Thyme Honey.
Our Wild Thyme Honey is one of Tunisia’s strongest flavoured honeys with a flavour that is intense, aromatic and distinctly herbal. Our Wild Thyme Honey works perfectly as an ingredient in many recipes, including marinades, stews and salad dressings. The Wild Thyme Honey is a beautiful caramel colour, with an intense herbal aroma and a thick, smooth texture.
Izoguern Thyme Honey is a valuable source of dietary antioxidants. Wild Thyme Honey is special as it contains one of the highest antioxidant activity ratings in the world, three to four times higher than other honeys. Antioxidants are important for neutralising the harmful free radicals in our bodies, and in doing so they help to defend against ageing and disease.
Izoguern honey is wonderfully versatile. It is delicious as a spread with nutty breads, and works well with fresh cheeses such as ricotta or mascarpone, as well as harder cheeses such as a mature cheddar. The flavour profile works beautifully with poultry or seafood, and goes well in Moroccan style dishes. It is also equally delicious drizzled over fresh figs, cakes or pancakes and waffles. Moreover giving honey instead of jam to children helps them to grow in a healthy fashion compared to commercial jams or nutella or any other products that includes huge quantities of artificial sugar.
