Raw Artisanal Honey ~ All Natural Beeswax ~ Native Plants for Bee Gardens
  • Apothecary Jars

    $3.75

    Spring and summer varieties in decorative apothecary style jars.  Available in 8 oz. and 16 oz. sizes.  Our Spring Blossom nectar is primarily collected from the flowering head of the staghorn sumac, whose edible fruits are rich in Vitamin C, making this honey an excellent choice for cold and flu season.  Spring Blossom honey is a pale yellow color that has a mild citrus flavor and pairs well with tea, fruit, and sharp cheeses.

    Our Summer Flower honey is a more complex wildflower blend that is yellow-orange in color and imparts some of the warmer caramel flavors associated with clover honey. Pairs well with breads, pastries, and soft cheeses.

    We only offer our spring and summer honeys in the apothecary jars because they are very slow to crystallize and will remain attractive in the jar and easy to pour when stored at room temperature.  Certain varieties of honey will slowly begin to crystallize when stored for extended periods below 70 degrees and crystallize fastest (within weeks!) when stored between 50 and 60 degrees.  Honey never goes bad.  If your honey crystallizes, it may be restored to liquid form by allowing bottle to stand for several hours to a day in a 120-degree water bath or other form of controlled heat.  Pasteurization temperature is 165 degrees.  In order to retain as much of the living enzymes in honey as possible, it is better to apply heat at a lower temperature for a longer period of time.
