Pure chestnut honey is liquid (higher fructose to glucose ratio) and has a reddish tinge. In its pure state, it can be quite bitter and smell like turpentine! FilippoÕs chestnut honey in the last 2 years has been milder, and it has a real following. People love it on its own, with cheese, on pancakes filled with ricotta, as an ingredient for cocktails. In northern Italy and France, chestnut honey and blue cheese are a classical pair. People will enjoy them in the winter, by the fireplace, with slices of juicy pears, a bowl of walnuts and a glass of port wine. Together, the blue cheese and the chestnut honey create an explosion of flavors, with many layers.
