Creamy Sunflower Honey - Desert Monastery
It is necessary to warn you. Do not put your finger in it ...
Between its taste and its creamy texture, we do not know what's sweetest. This creamy sunflower honey was selected by the monks of the Sainte Marie Abbey of the Desert and then conditioned by them.
For the use we have some ideas:
- directly to the spoon (we told you already, it is too good !!!)
- toast and butter
- we even heard about an employee who ate it by incorporating it into his croissant at breakfast ...
Yes, the selection of honey is a real job, when conditioning, you have to work properly, do not overheat, be delicate.

The community of this abbey is today composed of 15 brothers, of very diverse geographical origin: mainly French, but also a Kenyan, a Korean and a Belgian.
It belongs to the Cistercian Order of Strict Observance. It is defined as "a monastic institute fully ordered to contemplation".
Placed under a rule and under the guidance of an abbot whom they choose, the "monks live together in the enclosure of the monastery". They consecrate themselves to divine worship, following the Rule of St. Benedict, and assure the humble and noble service of the Divine Majesty in solitude and silence, in earnest prayer and joyous penance.
Today, the community includes thirteen Cistercian brothers dressed in white (their dress) and black (the scapular), all decorated with a leather belt. "We live by the rule of St. Benedict but our way of life is more marked by sobriety and simplicity," says with pleasure Brother Pierre-André, who is also the father abbot of the community.
If the Sainte-Marie-du-Désert abbey blends into the agricultural landscape, it is itself at the head of a property of 150 hectares of which the arable land (100 hectares) are entrusted to neighboring agricultural societies. while the monks manage their 50 hectares of forests. "For the wood cutting, we call on the forest cooperative of the Haute-Garonne," says Father Abbot.
The work of the community, past and present:
- Land Development: Agriculture and Forestry
- Workshop "Chantelle". And yes, we worked together until cosmetic manufacturing standards became too demanding to handle multiple manufacturing sites.
- Apiary (Honey and Confectionery)
