Daghmous honey, also known as darmous or darghmous, is a honey derived from a singular plant, the cactus.
Highly appreciated by honey connoisseurs, it is one of the few honeys to act on asthma.
Indeed, the pollen origin of cactus honey has beneficial properties against asthma.
However, it can also be used in cooking to enhance dishes and give them a unique flavor, whether with shrimps, certain meats or as an addition to certain fruit juices.
Geographical and natural origin of Moroccan daghmous honey
This honey is harvested in the Souss region, more precisely in the town of Taroudant, surrounded by two mountain ranges that open onto the Atlantic.
The climate is prosperous, conducive to the development of agricultural crops, and many varieties of honey are produced here, thanks to the diversity of the local flora.
Although the region is renowned for its citrus production, its desert is its treasure trove, as are its orange trees, making it an ideal setting for honey cultivation, given the richness of the vegetation.
Made from cactus, it's a monofloral, edible honey, although cactus is difficult to eat, unless you like particularly pungent cuisine!

For seasoning dishes, its strong, bitter taste may put off fine gourmets, so you'll have to decide whether it's right for your guests.
This honey can also be used in very cold weather to treat any illnesses that may result.
How to store Moroccan daghmous honey
Keep out of the sun and away from sources of heat.
Above 40 degrees Celsius, it will lose its therapeutic benefits and taste qualities.
It should also be stored in a dry, well-insulated place, rather than in a damp one.
Indeed, humidity greatly alters the quality of honey by increasing its moisture content, which should not exceed 17-18%.
Above this humidity level, the honey's fermentation process would begin.
Of course, we do not recommend consuming honey that has fermented, although there is no evidence that this is harmful to human health.
Your honey may crystallize, in which case a few minutes in a bain-marie will restore its natural liquid texture, without altering any of its intrinsic qualities.
