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.
