A unique “black honey” in Europe

Frigiliana is a beautiful small town in the province Malaga in the region of Axarquía. Nestled among the whitewashed houses and the steep hills lies El Ingenio Nuestra Señora del Carmen, the only molasses (or cane honey) factory in Europe, which has been running for close to three hundred years.

Entering the factory is like taking a trip in time, back to the historic past of this area in the inlands of Malaga, and back to an industry that once boasted dozens of sugar factories like this one scattered throughout the south of Malaga and Granada. MIEL7At the end of the 20th century, molasses began to disappear from the meadows of Malaga, which meant sugarcane juice, the main ingredient in this type of honey which is obtained by using rollers or mallets to press the cane, had to be imported from Central America. 

In El Ingenio factory, the process is still artisanal. The sugarcane juice goes through the first filtering here and is cooked in pailas, large double bottomed pans that hold steam at 120ºC, the resulting syrup is filtered again and goes to a vacuum concentrator where the master honey maker runs it through a series of tests and then removes it from the heat when it has reached the correct thickness. MIEL3The end product is one hundred percent natural, with no additives or preservatives and lasts indefinitely, thanks to its high concentration of sugar, although for health regulations, it is labeled with a “consume by” date of five years.

Using the same 18th century methods, today between 300 and 400 tons of molasses are turned out annually and are sold in Spain, a good part of Europe and to large clients like Israel.MIEL8-2So the “black honey,” as it is known in the region, will be part of the most exquisite dishes—mixed, drizzled on tender shoots of lettuce or acidic fruits, on the popular fried eggplant and with tougher meats like goat and lamb.

Ah. A bit of advice: the darker it is, the better it tastes and the more nutrients it will have.

    The most crucial problem with Nokia is the fact Symbian seems to be and feels out-of-date. It would are actually prime with the line OS 5 or six several years in the past, but in the present day, in contrast to Android or Bada, it just feels prehistoric. And when Nokia will carry on insisting on sub able components (400MHz CPU, crappy screens, fixed totally focus cameras free of flash), they will continue to fail by the complete array.

    The leading challenge with Nokia is Symbian seems and feels out-of-date. It would have been completely best of your line OS 5 or six many years ago, but today, in comparison to Android or Bada, it just feels prehistoric. And if Nokia will carry on insisting on sub capable components (400MHz CPU, crappy screens, mounted concentration cameras free of flash), they will however fall short via your entire variety.

    Christian Louboutin is one of the best choices if you want to buy a cheap designer bag but with very good quality.

    Only factor that’s desirable for me on X3 02 is definitely the all around design which appears good. But most likely going to get ruined by all the things else as ordinary. including the fee which Nokia cannot really extremely brag about.

    Only thing that is interesting for me on X3 02 will be the all round style which looks good. But quite possibly likely to generally be ruined by almost everything else as ordinary. including the price range which Nokia could not in fact brag about.
