It's very interesting how pine honey has much less sugar.  Bees will not normally go for pine, rather opting for flowers.  The only way to make them is to go to a higher altitude where no flowers are growing.

I didn't know that, but I was wondering how bees got honey from pine trees. What do they take home to the hive?

 

@cihaneroletlik I will look for chestnut next time. The honey comes from my favorite etnic shop. I paid 6,5 € for that tiny bottle, but it's worth every drop.

I spent many holidays in Turkye. Marmaris and the surrounding area was the best time I ever spent in Turkye. But also Bodrum which we visited long before there was an airport. We had to travel from Izmir to get there. We loved Gemüslük in the area, eating a whole fresh caught fish at those small restaurants with our feet nearly in the sea water which showed sunken ruins of ancient Myndos. 

 

And we certainly enjoyed our daily bottle of Kavaklidere white wine or "beriz sharap" as we learned. :thumb:

@ChrisBelgium  there's an insect that eats the sap on some pine trees.  It lives between the cracks in the bark.  After eating sap it secretes honeydew and that is what the bees collect the honeydew.  Nature!

Not sure if this counts as a summery dish, but then, some of us are actually in the winter (Southern hemisphere).:lol:

It's starting to heat up though.

 

Cherry tomatoes, topped with nachos and mozzarella cheese (and a bit of fresh coriander)
