A little culture
The Orange tree which gives us the delicious fruit is native to Asia and more particularly China where it has been cultivating for more than 2 millennia. The botanical name of the sweet Orange tree, Citrus Sinensis, refers to its origin. It is only since the 16th century that the orange tree was introduced in Europe having been brought back to Spain by Vasco de Gama.Orange is one of the favourite fruit of French people who consume 11kg per household annually. This explains the French annual import of 500 000 tons of this juicy fruit. France produces only 5000 tons of Oranges every year, well behind the Spanish yearly production of over 3 million tonnes, making it the leading producer in Europe.
Directions for use
It can be spread on a slice of rye or wholemeal bread, with or without butter (we love it with salted butter). It can be added to morning tea or simply with a yogurt. In the kitchen it can be used to soften your meals and salad dressings - it is all about taste and desire!
To preserve all the flavors and qualities of honey it is recommended not to heat it above 37° C. If necessary make it a little more liquid by warming it up on a radiator or in a hot-water bath over a low heat. Store in a dry place away from light.
