welcome to sunny sicily!
Where is Zafferana Etnea?
On the eastern side of the island of Sicily, the massive Mt. Etna volcano dominates the skyline. The hills surrouding this mountain are full of rich, volcanic soils. When combined with the sunny and warm weather, citrus trees such as lemons, tangerines, oranges and bergamot thrive in this area.
Local beekeepers have been placing their beehives amongst these trees for many generations. When these citrus trees are in bloom, the bees venture out to collect the sweet nectar that will become Miele di Agrumi (citrus honey).
On the south side of the mountain, you can find the small town of Zafferana Etnea. This is where our citrus honey was harvested.
Because it is so sweet and bold, citrus honey is a good choice for baking. These orange and cranberry muffins are a perfect match.

One of my favs and just works great with tea.
It's my new favorite honey. Mild and just right for putting in my green tea and herbal tea.
its a change from tupelo, but I liked it very much
Really enjoyed the smoothness and taste - can’t wait to get a sampler and try them all !!!
I tried other cheaper honey, I'm glad to be back to Smiley honey, great tasting Honey's to start your day.
