This is the strongest darkest honey that we carry. Loved by honey connoisseurs for its rich molasses flavor. Our Buckwheat Honey hails from the prairies of Washington State. High in minerals and antioxidants, this honey packs a punch! If you like the taste of molasses then you are going to love this honey. Pairs well with our rooibos teas.

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.
