The village of Llubí in the central plane of Mallorca celebrated its annual Honey Festival the day before yesterday, the VIII Fira de La Mel 2007.
Mallorcan honey is quite popular due to its superior quality. Mallorcan honey is a totally natural product. It is unheated, unfiltered, untreated and unblended. Production volume is quite limited on a small island like ours. 2007 estimates are for no more than 100 tons of the Mallorcan nectar.
Apart from pure honey, other derivate products were on sale as well: honeyed figs, honeyed apricots, honeyed hazelnuts, honey combs, Gelée Royale (Royal Jelly), pollen, honey wine, Mead, honeyed rum, candles, bees wax, you name it. Come and pay a visit, perhaps next year, again in November. Let’s hope for better weather then.
