HONEY

When, says the legend, was looking God Saturn the newborn Zeus to swallow him, his mother, Rhea hid him in Ideon Andron and put the Kuretes to cover the crying, beating bronze cymbals on their shields. But his grandmother, Gaia not content therein. Because he feared failure and the cries of little Zeus heard louder than the cymbals, placed at the entrance of the cave (Ideon Andron) a bustling Beehive and the loud hum of the cover the crying of small God, and the honey the harbored (the nymph Melia of the provided).

Honey and milk (from the goat Amaltheia), so was the nourishment of God ... What grew!!! Honey, dairy, cereals, olive oil, vegetables and fruits make up the basis of the Cretan diet. Bees produce honey from the nectar of flowers, which are the most excellent has to give a plant in his life. Bees collect, the process, the disinfect and seal in its cells. From there take the beekeeper.

It is perfectly reasonable for the quality of honey depends on the nectar of the flowers they visit each bee. And also absolutely right that, as many beneficial flowers visited the more quality honey will perform. In Crete thrive most of 1,742 kinds of plants and herbs, of which 159, as say botanists are only of native flora, i.e. does not grow anywhere else in the world! This is the material on which the working bee. And this material is the basis of honey of Crete.

And other products of beekeeping such as Royal Jelly – the Royal food blister, flower pollen, propolis to protect the hive and the wax is high value products (for drug and cosmetic industry) that are high value products produced by beekeepers in the area.

Giouchtas psiloritis, the surrounding smaller mountains and hills with flowers and trees of the wild flora and flowers than traditional crops are basically bee pastures ... more
