The Palm Honey in La Gomera

Canarius | Wednesday February 17th, 2010 |

The Palm Honey in La Gomera

It is all about palm “honey”. See how the palm sap is collected from tall, wild palmtrees in La Gomera. Spectacular images, nice music. Subtitles in Spanish. PALM HONEY is a syrup manufactured in the island of La Gomera, one of the seven Canary Islands.

The process is as follows:

  1. The upper leaves of the palm are removed (Phoenix canariensis).
  2. The top is cut until the man gets to the soft white part that forms the “core” of the palm.
  3. A channel is placed to collect the sap produced from this “wound”.
  4. The cut must “heal” daily at dusk to mane the sap during the night. During the day, the sun’s heat would spoil the liquid.
  5. At dawn, the craftsman collects the liquid and boil it for a long time until it becomes a sweet, thick black liquid.

This is an excellent food, very good flavor and with many properties.

The palm does not die by this process and quickly recovers. Every five years or so, it can again be tapped”. The best time is summer and extraction is most popular in the areas of Taguluche, Tazo, El Ingenio and Alojera.

You can buy different types of palm honey from the Canary Islands in the Honey Section of our Shop.
