The barena honey is typical in lagoon areas where the sea banks borders with the salt water. The barene are emerged lands near and inside the lagoon. According to scholars the name is derived from “baro”, the common name to indicate a thick mantle of shrubs or an uncultivated marshy terrain. The aspect is that of a low and flat island, with substrates formed by prevalently silt-clayey sediments.
The orange blossom honey used by the Torronificio Scaldaferro comes from rigorously selected cultivars. The production occurs in the zone of the Ribera Plain and the Catania Plain (where are respectively produced the famous Washington navel oranges and the red oranges of Sicily), under natural bio-ecological conditions.
