American Acacia Honey

$ 17.00

Tasting Notes: Light gold honey with delicate flavors of white flowers and mint. 

The American cousin of our popular Italian and Hungarian Acacia honeys, this beautiful and delicate light gold, raw Acacia honey is a refreshing and vibrant representative of the Acacia honey family while still retaining its prized and characteristic lightness.

Also known as Locust Honey, American Acacia honey is made from the nectar bees gather from Black Locust Trees. Acacia honey is slow to crystallize and full of good-for-you antioxidants. Try on your morning oatmeal or yogurt, in your favorite tea, or by the spoonful!

This honey would also be excellent in homemade honey mustard or as a luxuriant frosting whipped with cold butter. 

Pair with: China Green Jade or Nantou Four Seasons.

Natural raw honey has the seemingly magical capability of spontaneously "setting" or crystallizing. Each honey will crystallize at a different rate based on the sugar and water composition. With its wonderful texture and more concentrated flavor, we recommend crystallized honey as a delicious spread over toast! If liquid honey suits you better, simply heat a warm water bath to 100 degrees and remove the pan from the heat. Submerge your jar with the cap removed and allow to stand 20-30 minutes. It will be ready to pour again! An uncertain amount of time will pass before the honey may need de-crystallization again, and then simply repeat these steps as needed.
