Eucalyptus Honey with ‘Passa’ Pear
Originating from the nectar of eucalyptus flowers, it is aromatic, with a light brown tone and a more open aroma and taste, which combine delicately with other ingredients.
The raisin pear comes from the 'São Bartolomeu' pear trees, fruit trees of a regional variety, produced in new and intensive orchards. The pears are subjected to a specific drying process that causes the necessary changes in flavor, color and texture, from fresh pear to raisin pear. After solar drying, the fruits are ready to be squashed.
The result is a reddish brown raisin pear with unique organoleptic properties, elastic, sweet and very tasty.
This mixture results in a product with a sweet taste and very energetic, ideal to replenish energy after a trip to the gym or to accompany bruschetta, caramelized carrots, rustic bread, sandwiches, grilled shrimp, salad emulsions, ice cream or cocktails.
Honey from Portugal winner of the international design award Red Dot Design Award 2017.
Use as a sweetener for tea, coffee or milk, or as a topping for natural yoghurts, cured and fresh cheeses, pancakes, crepes or scones.
Ideal for sweet and sour sauces for meats or salads, grilled shrimp and in the preparation of cocktails.

Origin of raw materials
Originating from the nectar of eucalyptus flowers, it is aromatic and beneficial for health. Eucalyptus honey has a light brown tone and a more open aroma and taste, which combines delicately with other ingredients. With immense health benefits, eucalyptus honey is anti-inflammatory, antiseptic, antibacterial and stimulating.
The raisin pear comes from the S. Bartolomeu pear trees, fruit trees of a regional variety, produced in new and intensive orchards. After a set of processes that have been refined and perfected from generation to generation, a high quality “gourmet” product results from an inland area of our country. It is a sweet and nutritious fruit, produced mainly in the municipalities of Oliveira do Hospital, Seia, Tábua, Nelas, Gouveia, Mangualde, Santa Comba Dão and Viseu. They are harvested in August, and immediately afterwards, peeled by hand. The fresh pears, after peeling, are placed in the solar oven individually and separated, on trays, where they spend, as a rule, six days of direct exposure to the sun. This drying process causes the expected changes in the taste, color and texture of fresh pears in raisins. After solar drying, the fruits are ready to be squashed. The result is a reddish brown raisin pear with unique organoleptic properties, elastic, sweet and very tasty.
