Honey

What is a good quality honey in Turkey? I want a honey that hasn't been mixed with syrup, and ideally should be Turkish. Any suggestions??

Re: Honey

You will normally find that honey with petek (honeycomb) is pure, especially if you find it at your local manav or pastane. It would usually be packaged in clear plastic boxes and can be more expensive then the processed stuff in jars...Well worth it though!

Re: Honey

I don't buy "branded" honey from the supermarkets.

Always get mine from the local honey shop which sells all locally produced honey(bal) in tins or jars,or in little trays with the honeycomb included.

Our local shop sell pine flavoured honey,flower honey,herb flavoured honey........it's all yummy.

Re: Honey

Datca honey is famous all over Turkey and it's sold in enormous quantities to Turkish tourists. My favourite is Kekik, but I also like Pine honey. Most of the honey shops here allow you to try before you buy - yum!!!!!!

Yes, but I never have any left to bring home, have honey every day just love it off the spoon, or with crusty bread or toast.

In the UK, I buy Manuka honey, expensive but excellent love the honey in Turkey, pricey but worth it.

Re: Honey

Yes, I realised I was being stupid after I made the posting. There's the genuine article available, made locally, in the market (what was I thinking). But thanks for your replies.

LOL, we have a huge pine tree at end of our garden and our neighbour has bees and makes honey, she sometimes gives us some of the honey, but we cant eat it outside, because the bees seem to recognise it and more and more of them arrive to show an alarming interest.....

PS, I haven't tried to buy any from her because I am concerned she will want to give it to me. They are so generous and such good cooks that I always feel an inadequate cook in comparison. Though they are always very welcoming of my 'efforts'.

Not a stupid post at all. Also we find that whatever you give/do for your Turkish friends, they are always just so pleased and show their appreciation tenfold.

I was under the impression that you could still bring honey from Turkey back into the UK as long as it was no more than 2kg.

Re: Honey

Just looked on UK Border Agency site and for Non EU countries, this applies: "You are allowed up to 2kg combined weight per
person of other animal products (i.e. other than
meat, dairy and fish products) such as honey, eggs
and egg products, snail meat and live bivalves.
Please check the rules before travelling
www.direct.gov.uk/dontbringmeback"

Which is interesting, because I thought honey wasn't allowed (unless the rules have changed in the last 4 years or so).
