Sardinia's "honey water," the abbamele is the essence of honey.  Collected from mille fiori honeycombs, that are then pressed so that we can gather all the honey and pollen available; then we reduce the mixture in copper pots.  

This creates one of the most ancient honeys of gastronomy that also originates strictly from Sardinian culture.  The homeopathic properties of the pollen make abbamele a staple of those who are interested in a myriad of health benefits including vitality, energy and immunity.

Efisio enjoys abbamele as an enhancement to salads, cheese, fresh fruit, or as an ice cream topping.
