The aroma of orange blossoms characterizes this honey, along with the notes of honeysuckle, hawthorn, and yellow melon. Pleasantly sweet to the palate, with floral notes that can develop into lightly fruited notes, inviting additional tastes. The compound responsible for the distinctive orange blossom aroma is methylantranilate, and the amount of it present in the honey varies depending on the place of origin.
Its characteristic acidity and floral notes make it ideal for use in pastry making: pastiera with wheat, fried dough concoctions, and citrus compotes, a good match for savory dishes, with squash flower or spring vegetable frittatas, in marinades for raw fish.
