Crespo Organic | Mango Pit Honey Nectar

Mango Pit Honey Nectar

A great alternative to sucking on mango pits is using them to make tropical-perfumed simple syrups. You get a deeper, more intense layered syrup with hints of tropical notes and you to control the added sweetener utilizing mangoes natural sweetness.

Honey feels different than sugar and a little goes a long way. Our Mango Pit Syrup gets revamped as something more elegant when mango pits combine with a gentle honey syrup. The resulting soft and sweet syrup is both versatile and less sweet, despite its actual sweet honey-kissed taste.
