Basswood or Linden honey is prized as one of the finest honeys in the world.  The Basswood tree blooms their hanging floral clusters for only a short time in late spring and while the bees are busy pollinating. Our mid-western honey is mild, light, and delicious with notes of fresh spearmint. Enjoy this honey over nut butters, your favorite yogurt or indulge by the spoonful! 

Basswood pairs beautifully with our more delicate and floral white teas or white tea blends such as Yaddo Rose Garden.

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.
