Spring Blossom: 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. Also in bloom at this time are wild raspberries, black elderberry, and wild roses. Spring Blossom honey is extremely slow to granulate as its nectars are collected from fruiting trees and shrubs, which are higher in fructose than ground flowers. Spring
Blossom honey is a pale yellow color that has a mild citrus flavor and
pairs well with tea, fruit, and sharp cheeses.
Summer Flower: A more complex wildflower blend that is light amber in color and imparts some of the warmer caramel flavors associated with clover honey. Summer Flower honey varies in the time it will take to granulate and can take on a slightly different flavor and color from year to year depending on which floral nectars are available to the bees. Pairs well with breads, pastries, and soft cheeses.
Goldenrod: A beautiful amber honey with a warm buttery taste. Excellent with breads, soft cheeses, grain cereals, and pancakes. Because goldenrod honey granulates rather quickly, it can only be had in its raw liquid form in the final months of the year. After that, it needs to be warmed to re-liquify it for drizzling. We offer liquid goldenrod honey year-round by gently heating it under controlled temperatures below 122 degrees so as not to rob it of its raw goodness. It will granulate again but can always be brought back through gentle heating.
Goldenrod Cream: Liquid goldenrod honey quickly granulates to a coarse texture within a few short months when stored in cooler or fluctuating room temperatures. We use steady temperature controls (50 to 60 degree storage) to quickly bring it to a palatable creamy texture that is perfect for spreading or eating straight off the spoon. Goldenrod cream honey is raw honey at its best!
Fall Flower: The nectars of our fall flower honey are collected primarily from asters, goldenrod, and knotweed. This dark fall honey imparts a brown sugar flavor, not bitter like molasses. Excellent with hot cereals and in recipes that call for brown sugar. Pairs well with coffee, nuts, and dark chocolate. Like goldenrod honey, the fall flower blend also granulates quickly and can only be had in its raw liquid form during the final months of the year. We offer fall flower honey as both a raw cream honey and in a liquid form throughout the year. Liquid fall flower honey is heated under controlled temperatures below 122 degrees so as not to rob it of its raw goodness. It will granulate again but can always be brought back through gentle heating.
