Black Forest Honey, also known as Honeydew Honey is unique to our selection because instead of consuming nectar, the bees consume honeydew, a sweet substance produced by aphids. The wonderful health benefits of this honey parallel the accolades of Manuka honey. A dark honey with a high mineral and antioxidant content and a molasses taste, this honey is highly prized in Europe. Drizzle it over baked eggplant fries for a sweet and savory appetizer!

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.
